Ronda Rousey Following Talks At Length About Rumors Of Leaving WWE

Those rumblings are apparently premature, however.

The Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer indicated that the Raw Women's Champion could be done wrestling after WrestleMania 35 because she wanted to start a family.

Just in case her message isn't getting through, Rousey offered a more direct order.

Rousey hasn't been shy about feeling torn between her young WWE career and the window of time when it's considered ideal for a woman to try to get pregnant and have a healthy baby. A WWE spokesperson also confirmed that Rousey is signed with the company through April 10, 2021. We're told around Survivor Series she informed the company that it was likely she'd be taking that break after WrestleMania.

Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey may be nearing the end of her current run with WWE. Meltzer also speculates that it's possible for her to have a role like Undertaker or John Cena where she comes back from time to time. Rousey is expected to defend her title against Becky Lynch and possibly Charlotte Flair on April 7 at MetLife Stadium.

Rather than continue to listen to reports about her own future, Rousey spoke with ESPN's Ramona Shelburne to set the record straight. "Bray Wyatt hasn't been seen on television one would think with WrestleMania coming perhaps you could mix him in".

"We're ready to start having kids soon and I was thinking about what I've left unfinished in my life because I want to entirely focus on having kids when that time comes", Rousey told Yahoo!

This could be a clear signal that WWE is trying to get an idea about how fans will react if Rousey actually gets defeated. "But how do you go about doing that?" Booking-wise, WWE is preparing for her to potentially take an extended leave after WrestleMania.

When Rousey made the switch to the WWE, she was the most famous athlete to ever compete in the UFC.
