While Ronda Rousey was with the UFC, she was one of the biggest names. The hype and excitement she brought with her were insane. Needless to say, she still stays a big name in the arena of women’s combat sports. While she may have left MMA behind, the attention she brought to the sport was incredible.

Her career at WWE, too, was shining brightly. She had taken a break from WWE, as she wanted to focus on her family. However, she returned at the Royal Rumble premium live event and won the women’s rumble match. So it would be delightful to see the star give her fans some awesome wrestling matches in the future.

Rousey has retired from her MMA career. ‘Rowdy’ suffered two losses at the UFC against Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes and, later on, entered pro-wrestling. Recently, Julianna Peña has called out Ronda Rousey. But it does not look like she will consider getting back to MMA.

The athlete only recently returned to the WWE ring and has already dazzled the viewers. But earlier, she had taken a step back. It looks like there were several reasons for the same. The wrestler suffered a back injury, which made traveling particularly difficult. Further, she had also mentioned that her fans were ungrateful.
