Ronda Rousey showed up on SmackDown this week in an arm sling. This was a bit of a surprise, especially since she was previously booked to compete in a tag team match alongside Shayna Baszler against Natalya and Tegan Nox. Baszler and Nox had a singles match instead, and Rousey stood at ringside without getting physical.

Ringside News reached out to confirm Ronda Rousey’s current status. We were able to confirm the previous report that she will be okay to wrestle by WrestleMania.
A tenured member of the creative team informed us that they were told “Ronda aggravated an old injury and would be fine for Mania.” It was not confirmed what kind of injury Ronda Rousey is dealing with.
Ronda Rousey’s arm was in a sling, so we can only assume this is an issue with her shoulder or elbow. It seems that this is not that big of a deal, and she will be able to compete on the grandest stage of them all this year.
Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler are thought to be getting a WWE Women’s Tag Team Title match at WrestleMania 39. Lita and Becky Lynch just won those titles on WWE RAW this week. This could be an interesting addition to that story.
It was previously reported that fans should expect man “twists and turns” for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Title situation. Only time will tell exactly how it ends up in SoFi Stadium, but Ronda Rousey’s current injury isn’t expected to change the company’s destination.
