While Dave Meltzer mentioned in the latest issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Ronda Rousey is a “lock” for WrestleMania next year and hinted that she could possibly appear at The Royal Rumble, other media outlets are saying otherwise.
Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that Ronda Rousey has been filming for a movie that features Mark Whalberg called “Mile 22,” which began filming last month in Atlanta. Filming is set to resume for an extended period of time in Colombia after the holiday season is over. The exact date for when filming will conclude is unknown at this time, however a source indicated that it could be after the January 28th Royal Rumble event. This would mean that Rousey probably won’t be making an appearance for WWE next month.
It’s also being said that WWE and Rousey has not yet reached an actual deal and it’s very unlikely she’ll make an appearance at The Rumble before is signed. Ronda’s status can always change between now and the end of next month. We will keep you updated if it does.
