The signing of Ronda Rousey with WWE has contributed a lot to the rise of the Women's Division in recent years, although some rumors suggest 'Rowdy' will leave the company immediately after WrestleMania 35 in April.
Speaking recently on Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross explained Ronda is the only chance women have of main eventing WrestleMania. “Let me be honest about it. We all know who the catalyst of this whole thing is, right? Ronda Rousey.
Ronda Rousey’s presence, her image, what she means to the mass appeal audience is unsurpassed on the roster with the exception of maybe [Brock] Lesnar. The two most over people you can count on to sell pay-per-views in a big way is a h*t angle involving Lesnar and/or a h*t angle involving Rousey.
I think Rousey’s there to help these other girls get over and get established because we know that Rousey’s not gonna be around forever and I don’t have a problem with that" - Ross said. On the January 28, 2019, episode of Raw, Rousey continued her feud with Becky Lynch (whom had won the Royal Rumble match) after the latter chose to challenge her in a title match at WrestleMania 35.
