Ronda Rousey News 2020 pictures and video online
Many of these women joined the WWE after spending years in the Indies, but the company has always signed superstars with different athletic backgrounds, which is why there are several former MMA fighters on the main roster and NXT.
The company’s biggest MMA signing is without a doubt Ronda Rousey, who signed a multi-year contract in 2018, and she went on to have a lengthy and dominant run as the Raw Women’s Champion, but she has not stepped foot in a WWE ring since she lost her title at last year’s WrestleMania.
Ronda’s In Some Hot Water
Ronda has now been gone for over a year, and she has spent most of that time on the farm with her family. She recently spoke with Steve-O on his Wild Ride podcast, where she called professional wrestling “fake fighting”, which is sacrilege and to make matters worse, she insulted the WWE Universe by saying it is filled with “ungrateful fans.”
Fans did not appreciate this, so if she does return to in-ring competition, WWE will have no choice but to make her a heel, because wrestling fans have a long memory, and they will never get behind someone who criticized them.
She also managed to offend several superstars by using the word “fake” and Nia Jax has since said that she is willing to risk her career by legitimately knocking Ronda out in a match.
She’ll Definitely Be Back, But Not Full-Time
Ronda is still under contract until 2021, and WWE definitely wants to bring her back, as she would generate more money and higher ratings for the company, and despite her comments, she is willing to return, but only if she gets a lighter workload.
“Well, if I ever do come back it will never be at a full-time capacity ever again. I think like for stints like chunks of time you know. I’m very much like an obsessive person or I like to obsess over something for a certain time and then like kind of go take some time to obsess about something else.”
“But no I’m never gonna be full time again, [I’m never going to spend] over 200 days a year on the road like that ever again, [I did it before because] I needed to do it in order to learn and get like immersed into it and really understand what was going on, but it’s just not the lifestyle for me.”
It is fair to assume that when Ronda returns, she will have a schedule similar to Brock Lesnar’s, and according to Dave Meltzer, her return will most likely happen next year when the company builds towards WrestleMania 37, which will be held in Los Angeles.
