Former UFC Champion Ronda Rousey has been missing from WWE TV for quite some time now. She has had a short title reign on WWE, but has been missing since she lost it to Becky Lynch. There have been rumors about Rousey’s return to WWE. With Royal Rumble hours away, her WWE return reports have gained traction.

Dave Meltzer recently gave an update on when we could see a WWE return for former Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey. The 2021 edition of Royal Rumble takes place this Sunday night. Where there have been rumors of Ronda Rousey possibly returning at the show.

On the latest edition of Dave Meltzer show he gave an update on when Ronda Rousey could return to WWE. Here’s what Meltzer had to say: “Ronda was training. I know that. She will still be at WrestleMania. So with Ronda, here’s the negative. Ronda can come into the Royal Rumble and be a surprise but unless she’s gonna win, I would say no way. Now if she’s going to win, yes, then do it. But she can still work WrestleMania and shoot an angle with somebody without winning the Royal Rumble because people will resent her for winning the Royal Rumble because she’s not been there and even though they will pop because of the surprise aspect and then everyone will complain… part-timer blah blah blah. So it’s almost from a political standpoint better for her not to win but if she’s not gonna win she shouldn’t be in it. Why do that?”

Ronda Rousey’s last WWE match was at WrestleMania 35. Ronda Rousey main evented the show along with Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch. Lynch won the match and left as a double champion.
