Ronda Rousey found herself in the MMA rules match at SummerSlam 2023, and unfortunately, the outcome was not in her favor as her former friend emerged victorious in a dominating fashion. For those who may not be aware, Rousey went head-to-head against Shayna Baszler at the event, engaging in intense MMA rules bout. The genesis of this contest traces back to Shayna’s betrayal of Rousey at Money in the Bank 2023, where she unveiled herself as the driving force behind Ronda’s success in the company.
In the aftermath of a recent premium live event loss, speculation suggests that Rousey may be on the verge of departing from WWE. It appears that her match against Baszler at this year’s SummerSlam could potentially mark her final appearance in the promotion.
Ronda Rousey reportedly had her final match at SummerSlam
Following her defeat at SummerSlam 2023, there is a growing belief that the 36-year-old star may be departing from WWE. The potential reasoning behind her final match at SummerSlam, facing Shayna Baszler, could be her desire to engage in a last bout against her best friend. However, it has been reported that this match might mark her last appearance before embarking on an indefinite hiatus. Wrestling News.Co has indicated that Ronda Rousey is set to exit WWE following her loss to Shayna Baszler at SummerSlam 2023, with her return date remaining unknown due to contractual considerations.
For those who might not be aware, The Baddest Woman on the Planet joined the Stamford-based Promotion in 2018 and enjoyed a successful tenure as the WWE Raw Women’s Champion. It’s worth noting that Ronda Rousey had taken a hiatus from the company after her initial loss at WrestleMania 35, returning in 2022 as a surprise entrant at the Royal Rumble.
According to her WWE contract, Ronda Rousey holds a guaranteed and non-negotiable departure date, granting her the freedom to leave the company without encountering any limitations whenever she chooses.
Possible future plans for Rousey
If the reports come true, it is highly likely that Rousey will join Hollywood and pursue her career in acting as she has already worked in a few Hollywood movies. She even appeared on the “Stars of Mars” television show recently, where she has been part of eight episodes.
Also, in an interview with James Desborough of “The Sun” Magazine, The Baddest Women on the Planet revealed that she has a great interest in making a career in Hollywood and also she wishes to have another child with her husband.
So, overall it seems like it is highly likely that Rousey will be leaving WWE and further join Hollywood for her acting career.
