The Rowdy Ronda Rousey made her surprise return to WWE for second stint with the company at the 2022 Royal Rumble event and also won the Women’s Royal Rumble match. Later, she also won the WWE Women’s Championship and had a good run. Later, she teamed up with her long time friend Shayna Baszler and won the Women’s Tag Team Titles.
But Rousey & Shayna Baszler lost the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships to Liv Morgan & Raquel Rodriguez at the WWE Money in the Bank 2023 premium live event when Shayna attacked Rousey from behind and then choked her out. Both started feud since then and set to face each other at Summer Slam 2023 in MMA rules match.
Previously, it was reported that there is a hard out date for Ronda Rousey’s current WWE deal and that’s the reason why company rushed the feud between Rousey and Baszler. In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that the former WWE Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey’s departure is relatively coming soon.
“It’s not confirmed whether this is Rousey’s last match in WWE for the time being, but her departure is coming relatively soon since they had to rush the turn angle. We do know the reason nothing was announced is because they hadn’t settled on exactly what MMA rules means.” (H/T: WrestlingNews.co)
