Could Ronda Rousey Leave WWE Sooner Than Later?
The RAW Woman’s Champion had a lot of build up behind her once she joined the ranks of the WWE. At first, the details of her contract, via the media, were pure speculation. Most outlets reported that she was only signed for one year. That information mainly came from “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair, that was in June of 2018. Later on in August of 2018, in an ESPN interview, Rousey said: “We (Her & WWE) had a set timeline set, and now we aren’t so sure about it because I love it so much.”
So, the information of her initial contract of one year could have been true, and once she got a taste of the squared circle, decided she wanted to stay longer and signed an extension to her preexisting one. Roughly a month later in September of 2018, Forbes noted that her contract would last (at least) until 2020. That way if she decides to exit the company, she can do so after WrestleMania 36 with WWE Creative writing some sort of exit storyline (injury, ‘I Quit Match’, etc.) or if she decides to stay and/or extend her contract, the writers can come up with a storyline that goes beyond WrestleMania 36.
On November 21, on Ronda’s YouTube channel, she posted part 1 & 2 of “Ronda’s Post-Survivor Series Q&A” where she mainly commented on the current happenings of her life, professional and otherwise. Rousey talked about Becky “The Man” #BeckyLynch, Charlotte “The Queen” Flair and her homecoming on Holiday breaks and down time. The comment that she makes when talking about family is as follows:
“I can’t wrestle forever because I feel like I’m failing my family…. It’s rough. I wouldn’t be leaving home unless it was to do the most fantastic things ever and I really really do enjoy it and love it, but all that energy I spend on the WWE is energy I don’t spend on my family.”
Talking about the energy #RondaRousey spends on the #WWE being energy she doesn’t spend on her family, she is visibly emotional. As recent as a March 2018 interview, Rousey had stated that her and her Husband, UFC fighter Travis Browne have talked about and want to have children. “We’re (Rousey & Browne) ready to start having kids soon…”
So, could that 8-month old statement mean that 2020 is Rousey’s expiration date for WWE?
