It’s the busiest time of the year for the WWE as the build-up towards WrestleMania 35 is on in full swing. Surprisingly enough, this year’s Show of Shows is expected to have the first-ever Women’s main event as Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch are most likely set to battle it out for the Raw Women’s Championship in a Triple Threat match.
While Charlotte and Lynch will be major players after ‘Mania, the WWE may have to do without the presence of its biggest mainstream attraction, Ronda Rousey.
Advertisements for events after WrestleMania have possibly revealed what could be in store for the former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion.
As revealed by PWInsider, Rousey is not advertised for any of the shows after the first Raw episode after WrestleMania 35.
The fall-out episode of Raw for ‘Mania is scheduled to take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on April 8th, 2019. Rousey is listed to be on the show and will be reportedly taking some time off from WWE TV after that.
Dave Meltzer initially reported about Rousey wanting to leave WWE after ‘Mania. However, it was later clarified that she only wants some time off and does not intend on leaving the company altogether.
There were rumors also flying around that she plans on starting a family with husband Travis Browne and would need a well-deserved hiatus to do the same. Rousey had come out to trash those rumors but there is some truth to the speculation of a potentially lengthy break if the lack of advertisements is anything to go by.
The UFC Hall of Famer is signed to the WWE until 2021 and will not be leaving anytime soon. She will, however, most probably step away from TV to focus on her family and other ventures outside pro wrestling.
For now, her focus would be on putting on a show in what could be a monumental match at WrestleMania 35 on April 7th, 2019.
