Welcome back. We are coming up the Road To WrestleMania and that means it is time to start setting things up. There are a few ways to do that and some of them are a little more complicated than others. One of the best things that WWE can do is bring back some of its bigger names, many of whom will be in action at WrestleMania. Now we know a little bit more about one of the top returning stars.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Ronda Rousey is returning to WWE on a one year deal. Rousey will be part of the SmackDown roster but will likely appear on some Monday Night Raw shows as well. There is no word on if Rousey will be around every week, but the deal is said to be for more than the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania. WWE has yet to officially announce anything about Rousey, though she may be saved for a surprise at the Royal Rumble.
Rousey has not wrestled for WWE since WrestleMania 35 in 2019. She debuted at the 2018 Royal Rumble and made her in-ring debut at WrestleMania 45. Rousey would go on to become the Raw Women’s Champion and ultimately lose it to Lynch in Rousey’s final appearance to date with the company. Lynch has still not been pinned to lose that title, having only been forced to vacate it due to maternity leave.
Opinion: This is one of the few big clubs that WWE had left in its bag as Rousey brings instant star power to the show. It helps that she has had some rather good matches during her time in the ring and should be able to do so again. What matters here is that we should be getting something fresh in the women’s divisions, which has been lacking for a good while now.
What do you think of Rousey? How would she be best used in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
