As previously reported, Dave Meltzer said in a recent edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that there is a “very good chance” that RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey could be done with WWE after WrestleMania, or the Backlash PPV in May. Meltzer stated that the company is working with the mindset that she is finishing up within the next couple of months.
It was previously reported that according to sources within The WWE Rousey was signed to a multi-year deal. TMZ recently confirmed that report, stating that a WWE Spokesperson told them that Rousey’s WWE contract expires on April 10th, 2021.
Rousey may still be taking a break from WWE. Pro Wrestling Sheet reported that Rousey informed WWE last November that it was likely that she would be taking a break after WrestleMania, however that is not set in stone yet.
Rousey has openly talked about starting a family soon. Even before she made her WWE debut last April at WrestleMania 34, Rousey told Yahoo Sports that she and her husband, Travis Browne, were “ready to start having kids soon,” but she first wanted to give WWE a shot. When asked by TMZ last May when she planned on having a baby, she replied, “Soon, someday soon.”
Rousey is scheduled to defend her title against Sasha Banks at The Royal Rumble PPV Event this Sunday.
