Ronda Rousey's WWE stint was short but thrilling. Her last appearance in the ring dates back to WrestleMania 35 when she lost the Raw Women's Championship to Becky Lynch (Charlotte Flair was also involved in her match).
The Irish superstar defeated Rousey and Charlotte Flair in the first all-female main event in WrestleMania history two years ago. Although the feud between Ronda and Becky lasted a long time, the two have never faced each other in a 1vs1 match.
In a recent interview with Graham Matthews for 'Bleacher Report', Lynch was asked about Rousey's eventual return to WrestleMania 38 in 2022. The next edition of the 'Showcase of the Immortals' will be staged on 2- April 3, 2022, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Becky Lynch slams Ronda Rousey
“There are a lot of girls hoping to get their chance at WrestleMania. Ronda Rousey will probably be chewing on bitterness seeing everything I have accomplished. Maybe she'd like to get the same results like me, or maybe she'll want to avenge herself for the blow I inflicted on WrestleMania 35.
That night she turned my career around" - explained 'The Man' Becky Lynch named three superstars he could challenge at WrestleMania: “There are a lot of talented female athletes in this historical phase.
I am reminded of Liv Morgan, who is building a fantastic career and enjoying great momentum. There is also Bianca Belair, who has proven several times to be an exceptional performer. Finally, we have Rhea Ripley, who knows how to entertain the public like few others on the female roster."
Becky also talked about the rise of AEW: “The competition is huge right now. I think Vince McMahon gives him his best when he's tickled by the competition. He always grants various options to his superstars. If you don't like vanilla, you can go with chocolate.
If you don't like strawberries, you can go with something different. There are a lot of options for fans and wrestlers, which is great." Rousey hasn't been seen on WWE TV since WrestleMania 35, but officially speaking, her contract with the company reportedly expired in early April 2021 - right around the time of WrestleMania 37.
This means that she is no longer with Vince McMahon's promotion. What this also means is that WWE may have had plans for Ronda Rousey to be a part of two WrestleMania events. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted in the same report that there were always plans for Rousey to appear at the WrestleMania in Hollywood - originally scheduled for 2021.
