Ronda Rousey last appeared on WWE at Wrestlemania 35. That Wrestlemania is popular for its first ever all-women main event match. Rousey was pinned by Becky Lynch in that match, losing her WWE Raw Women’s Championship.
Recently, Dave Meltzer analyzed the WWE Draft 2020 on Wrestling Observer Newsletter. He mentioned there that Rousey is still under a WWE contract. She is also expected to return for Wrestlemania 37 next year in Los Angeles.
This is not all, even Paul Heyman hinted that Rousey might have already signed a new contract. He mentioned that it’s a possibility that intentionally neither WWE nor Rousey are going public with this. Heyman said, “But why wouldn’t people understand that it would be kept secret?”
