Is Ronda Rousey on her way out of the WWE?

Those rumblings are apparently premature, however.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter recently reported that WWE was willing to double the salary on talent who were willing to sign a contract immediately if they showed a contract from a competing company. A WWE spokesperson also confirmed that Rousey is signed with the company through April 10, 2021. "We're ready to start having kids soon and I was thinking about what I've left unfinished in my life because I want to entirely focus on having kids when that time comes", she told Yahoo Sports last March.

"I really don't feel like I should have to respond to that kind of thing", she added. This Sunday, she will face Sasha Banks in a title defense at the Royal Rumble.

Spending most of her UFC career as seemingly unbeatable, Rousey's dominance came to a crashing halt when Holly Holm knocked her out with a stunning second-round head kick in 2015. Upon entering WWE, Rousey became a full-time wrestler and won the RAW women's championship.

Rousey, 31, has gone on record about wanting to start a family.


The stories differed on how long Rousey would be out of WWE, but they both agree that Rousey had some type of arrangement with officials regarding a break. "But how do you go about doing that?"

Express Sport will bring you complete coverage of the event which gets underway at midnight in the UK.

In another big twist, PW Insider recently reported that WWE had already made the producer offer to Ziggler, but the former Money in the Bank victor turned that down and it's now why many are believing that this time he could finally be on his way out of WWE. Or should you stop and go try and get pregnant? She made her debut at the Royal Rumble. "I've never had a baby before, I don't know these kinds of things", she said.

In order for such a match to happen, we'd also be seeing current NXT Women's Champion Shayna Baszler and fellow MMA Horsewomen Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke make their way to the main roster.
