Former WWE Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey hasn’t been seen since WrestleMania 35 when she was pinned for the first time by Becky Lynch and lost her Championship. Rousey told the world that she was heading off on an impregnation vacation and has since avoided the spotlight.
The former UFC star has appeared on Total Divas throughout the last season, which was filmed up until her departure following WrestleMania, but she has failed to fully address her WWE status since she is still signed to the company for another year despite her hiatus. In a recent interview with People.com, Rousey finally addressed if she will be returning to the ring in the future.
“I think I need to figure out a different way of doing it. To be able to not have to choose career over family or family over career and kind of find that happy medium.”
“Right now, I think my family needs my undivided attention, I’m happy to give them that. But I’m trying to figure out a way or a system or somehow that I could give both my family and WWE the best of me and not be half-ass in both.”
“The girls are doing amazing right now. I really don’t think that I’m that necessary in what’s going on. I think they’re crushing it and I really did want to bring a spotlight to what they’re doing and let them stand in it. And I think it’s kind of better, they’re better off with me taking a step away right now, and kind of finding their stride without me.”
“And I would love to add to what they’re doing. I don’t want to ever be a hindrance or take away from what they’re doing or steal the spotlight from some up and coming girls that deserve it more than me,” he said via PWMania.
