Coming back to Ronda, she previously said that she won’t be back in WWE full-time again. However, she could be open to part-time appearances.

“If I ever do come back, it will never be at a full-time capacity ever again. I think for stints, chunks of time, I’m very much an obsessive person where I like to obsess over something for a certain time and then take some time to obsess about something else, but no, I’m never going to be full-time again, over 200 days a year, on the road. I needed to do it in order to learn and get immersed into it and really understand what was going on, but it’s just not the lifestyle for me.
