It hasn't been confirmed yet by Ronda Rousey nor WWE, but multiple reports have suggested that she'll go on hiatus after defending the Raw Women's Championship at WrestleMania 35.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter was first to report that Rousey is set to leave after 'Mania, and the Baddest Woman on the Planet has talked about wanting to start a family with husband Travis Browne - which could be the reason for a possible break from wrestling.
For what it's worth, Sports Betting Dime has listed the odds of 11/9 for Rousey to "quit" WWE following WrestleMania 35. That will only create more speculation that she'll drop the title at 'Mania and indeed go on a hiatus.
It isn't known how long Rousey would be out of the WWE for, but Meltzer recently noted that she's not part of the WWE's European tour in May. He suggested that she could be gone "a lot longer than" the SummerSlam pay-per-view in August.
After Meltzer's report came out that Rousey was about to leave WWE, TMZ Sports reached out to the company for comment. WWE said she is under contract through Apr. 10, 2021 - and it's a "private matter" if she wants to start a family. That alone should ease any worries from fans that Rousey is planning to leave the WWE for good.
Rousey's first year in the WWE has been a massive success thus far. She's relished as both a babyface and more recently, a heel. WWE had no choice but to turn Becky Lynch as the face over Rousey, as "The Man" was garnering far more positive reactions from the crowd. It'll be interesting to see how WWE plans out the Raw women's division in the future, if Rousey is set to go on hiatus for a long period of time.
What This Means
With high betting odds of her leaving WWE, it's only the latest hint that Rousey will need be taking a lengthy break. There aren't any signs that she's exiting the WWE for good, but it seems like the company is preparing for her to leave temporarily after she defends her title.
