Wrestling fans have been hoping all year that Ronda Rousey would build off her WrestleMania 31 appearance and compete in a match next year, but it doesn’t look like that will be happening. It seems scheduling conflicts will occur for the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion.
“I would love to but I’m going to be in Jakarta filming my movie,” Rousey said at a Q&A in Australia. The movie is “Mile 22”.
The movie is expected to film through the first quarter of 2016 which would make an appearance very hard for Rousey, much less building a program on RAW and competing in a match.
Some would also think that Dana White and the UFC wouldn’t want her as an active particpant in a WWE match. Here’s what White had to say:
“The thing she did with WWE was cool,” White said. “She did a great job, I thought it was awesome, but believe me when I tell you she’s got a lot of s**t to do. She’s pretty busy.
“Why would you want to see her wrestle when you can see her fight?”
