We know the Royal Rumble for its surprise returns and exciting debuts. One such exciting debut was of former UFC Fighter Ronda Rousey at Royal Rumble 2018. Ronda did not debut in the women’s Royal Rumble match, but came out to a tremendous roar as both women champions and Royal Rumble winner Asuka stood in the ring.
Ronda Rousey made her WWE debut at Royal Rumble 2018 and wrestled for the company full-time before losing the Raw Women’s Championship to Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 35.
Ronda hasn’t been on WWE programming ever since, and fans believe it is because she and Travis Browne plan on starting a family.
Almost 2 years have passed since Ronda Rousey’s last WWE appearance and fans are wondering will the ‘Rowdy‘ one make her long-awaited WWE return at the Royal Rumble. Plus, some are also speculating about an appearance from Travis Browne in the Men’s Royal Rumble match.
Honestly, Ronda Rousey and Travis Browne appearing at the Royal Rumble is nothing beyond speculation at the moment. But Rousey’s contract with WWE is till April 2021. This makes one hold on to the hope of seeing her return to wrestling one last time.
There’s no doubt that both Ronda and Travis are training, they’re fighters after all and will keep themselves in a good shape. So, getting back in shape isn’t a concern, unlike some other returning superstars.
Ronda Rousey had a great time in the WWE; she was undefeated for almost a year. Not just that, but she also held the Raw Women’s Championship for a record 231 days. Becky Lynch set a record for the longest reign the following year.
Despite being under contract till April 2021, Ronda Rousey has not appeared once since losing at WrestleMania 35. Rousey was very vocal about starting a family, but no news about the same has hit the papers yet.
‘Rowdy’ Ronda has also noted in the past that even if returns to the WWE, it will be in a part-time capacity. John Cena and Brock Lesnar draw numbers despite being part-time, and Ronda Rousey wouldn’t be any different.
Ronda Rousey and Travis Browne are definitely in top-notch shape for a WWE return/debut, but will they or will Ronda return at least? We don’t know. WWE is pretty good at keeping surprises.
