Ronda Rousey has been on what she is calling an "impregnation vacation" since losing the Raw Women's Championship to Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 35, and it's unknown if and when she'd return to WWE.
Rousey also broke her hand during the match, so that will take a bit of time to recover from as well. For now, the Baddest Woman on the Planet won't be around to challenge Lynch for the Raw Women's title. Fans just have to sit back and see what the future holds for Rousey in the squared circle.
On her YouTube channel (h/t WrestlingInc.com), Rousey actually revealed that her original run in WWE was supposed to be very short. However, she decided to stay on even longer when she learned that there was a chance of female talents headlining WrestleMania 35 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
"Originally we approached them, or I approached them, I thought I'd only be able to wrestle from WrestleMania until November because we already wanted to start a family...Instead of being like a small detour in my life, it became my whole life for an entire year and I completely fell in love with it.
"As time went on, we were kind of playing it by ear, I loved it so much and I ended up getting the title. When it became a real possibility that women could be the main event of WrestleMania if I stuck around, I decided to stick around. We decided that after WrestleMania, me and my amazing husband would go off and start trying to start our family."
Well, Rousey's decision to stay on for a full year wound up being the right choice. Along with Lynch and Charlotte Flair, Rousey made history - taking part in the very first women's main event match at WrestleMania.
The match lived up to full expectations, as the three premier in-ring talents traded blow for blow in a clinical bout. Ultimately. Lynch - the long-time fan favorite in WWE - pinned Rousey to win both the Raw and Women's Championships.
Rousey had talked about wanting to start a family with husband Travis Browne for a while now. She'll be away for long-term, and after that, nobody knows for sure if we'll see her in the ring again soon. But either way, the WWE Universe enjoyed watching her dominate the competition in the wrestling ring, and she would certainly be welcomed back in open arms.
What This Means
Nobody knew for sure how long Rousey would be in WWE for during her original run. It was well-known that she wanted to give it a try after leaving the UFC. So far, so good, and there are plenty of incentives for her to return.
