Wrestling reporter, now WWE insider, Ryan Satin has called his shot at No. 30 for this season's Royal Rumble match. Essentially he's called for a return of one of the baddest athletes on the planet.
When asked what he would do the for the men's and women's Royal Rumble match, Satin likes whatever will lead to a Demon vs The Fiend match. But, on the women's side, Satin said, "If possible, Ronda as a surprise #30 entrant to setup the WrestleMania match against Becky Lynch."
Satin, who is now as close as any wrestling reporter might get to WWE — thanks to his new role on WWE Backstage — suggested bringing back the former Women's Champion at No. 30. And, while he did say, "if possible", it stands to reason he wouldn't mention it, if he didn't think it wasn't.

Harder to say for the men. I think “The Demon” vs “The Fiend” should ultimately be the Universal title match, but I’m not sure Finn needs a Rumble win to get there. https://t.co/ne34PHca08
There's not been much in the way of news as it pertains to Ronda Rousey's future in WWE. All we know is that Triple H has said publicly that she's not done, she will be back and it's just a matter of fitting things in around her personal schedule. That schedule includes Rousey and husband Travis Brown trying to have a baby.
Along the way, Rousey has been very active on Total Divas, working with WWE in other capacities outside the ring and filming projects unrelated to WWE. There have been murmurs she might put the whole family thing on hold and come back because she misses the WWE so much.
Rousey vs. Lynch Rematch?
A Rousey versus Lynch rematch at WrestleMania 36 would absolutely help sell the show with Rousey likely getting the win. While Lynch is still popular, her buzz has faded a touch and Rousey did the job for Lynch at last year's WrestleMania. In short, Rousey is due.
At the same time, a WrestleMania that could feature Rousey, Tyson Fury and an appearance by CM Punk would equal big numbers for WWE.
