After losing the SmackDown champion title against Charlotte Flair during the last episode of Friday Night SmackDown of 2022, Ronda Rousey has never been seen again on WWE screens, with her name also being crossed off the list of those which should appear in the special episode of Raw 30.
As reported in the last few hours by Fightful Select (registration required), with public transcript of Inside The Ropes, fans hoping to see their idol Ronda Rousey in the Royal Rumble ring could be quite disappointed, because it seems that WWE has not intention to make her participate in the Premium Live Event on January 28th.
In fact, the report states that for some time now, more or less last week, Rowdy has not had any plans for an appearance at the show, despite the fact that before losing the title she would have to face a singles match, probably as a champion.
Obviously it was also specified that things can always change, as is often said by various journalists.
Backstage news on Ronda Rousey
Meanwhile, WWE would apparently have asked Jason Cade's help for the construction of its female 2023 Royal Rumble, with the independent athlete who should therefore join forces with TJ Wilson, Natalya's husband and former WWE wrestler, in the actual construction of the match among the 30 women.
This indiscretion was reported by the well-known journalist Sean Ross Sapp, who stated in the last few hours: “Jason Cade is slated to do some work with the company as a producer. Specifically, Fightful Select was told that Cade is helping build the women's Royal Rumble match and that Tyson Kidd/TJ Wilson was instrumental in getting him on the scene.
"Cade has trained with Wilson and Natalya in the past. We haven't been told if this thing will be full-time, a trial or a test for him." Current SmackDown Women's Champion Ronda Rousey shared her honest opinion about her second run in WWE, which began earlier this year.
"I think this run is easier because I kind of know how things work around here and I've kind of paid up more of my dues... I have put enough time here that they'll at least hear me out and explain to me why I'm wrong if I am, you know, and that way I learned something. I think I feel like I have more of a voice this time and confidence to use it."
