In an unexpected yet thrilling development for wrestling fans, Ronda Rousey is poised to make waves outside the WWE universe. On November 16, 2023, the formidable athlete will join forces with Marina Shafir at Wrestling Revolver's anticipated UNREAL event in Los Angeles.
This marks Rousey's high-profile matchup since her departure from WWE following a heated SummerSlam bout against Shayna Baszler in August. The event will not only showcase her exceptional wrestling prowess but also underline her commitment to philanthropy.
Rousey's upcoming appearance was a serendipitous orchestration, according to Wrestling Revolver’s own Sami Callihan on Busted Open Radio. With no grand design at play, Callihan credits mutual connections and high regard for his work as the catalyst for Rousey's involvement.
The former UFC and WWE star's motivation is heartfelt—aiming to support the Hawaiian relief fund, a cause close to her family, with her husband’s Hawaiian roots fueling her charitable endeavors. All profits from ticket sales will bolster the Lahaina Wildfire Relief efforts, a testament to Rousey's investment in making a tangible difference beyond the ring.
The decision to join the Wrestling Revolver roster is a fresh twist in Rousey's illustrious career, further solidified by her successful tag-team match at Lucha VaVOOM alongside Shafir against Taya Valkyrie and Brian Kendrick.
This partnership is set to be reignited at the Homenetmen Glendale Ararat venue, with the dynamic duo squaring off against AEW's Athena and Billie Starkz in what is promised to be a riveting headline event. Beyond her wrestling engagements, Rousey is channeling her experiences into a memoir aptly titled "Our Fight." This personal project will offer fans an intimate look into the life and battles of one of the most influential figures in modern combat sports.
As Rousey extends her narrative from the canvas of wrestling rings to the pages of her upcoming book, her venture at Wrestling Revolver's UNREAL event is not merely a match but a mission—one where every ticket converts into aid for a community in need.
The sporting world is abuzz with anticipation for Rousey's next chapter, both in and out of the ring. Her unwavering commitment to her causes and community is a testament to the strength of her character, promising an event that resonates far beyond the spectacle of combat.
