Natalya and Ronda Rousey have been close for a number of years since The Queen of Harts was Rousey’s training partner throughout her time in WWE.
The former UFC Champion made the decision to walk away from the company back in 2019 following WrestleMania 35 since she decided she wanted to have a child.
Rousey’s WWE contract is yet to come to an end and reportedly expires around this year’s WrestleMania which gives her plenty of time to make her return.
Ronda Rousey has been teased as a surprise for this year’s Royal Rumble and it appears that Natalya believes Rousey will return soon as well.
As part of a recent interview with Sportskeeda, Nattie revealed that WWE fans would “expect the unexpected.”
“I love Ronda. I think that she, you know, she was so much fun to work with and I look forward to the thought of her coming back, but I don’t know. I think that Ronda will love to come back to WWE, but I also think that her main focus is really on her family. On starting a family. I know that has been like a dream of hers since I first met her. The very first time I met her, she was talking about wanting a family. So, I have to give her credit for really sticking to her guns.”
“You know, it’s so tempting to want to come back to WWE because it’s so much fun to perform for people around the world, but at the same time, Ronda, she seems very committed to wanting a family. So, we’ll see. But, you know, there are a million things that can happen and that, again, is what I love about WWE is that, like, you never know who is going to show up at the Royal Rumble. You never know who is going to be a part of WrestleMania. It’s really, you know, you have to expect the unexpected.”
