Click here for our complete coverage of WWE Money in the Bank.

Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler were supposed to win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles at WrestleMania, but Rousey’s injury got in the way. They still competed at WrestleMania, but it was in a 4-way tag team match where Rousey could be protected.

Money in the Bank saw Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez win the titles once again. During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained that this was always the plan for Rousey. After all, she doesn’t have much longer in WWE.


The thing was that we were saying Ronda and Shayna were winning the tag team titles, and then Ronda got hurt. The thing is that I don’t know the date, but it might be SummerSlam or a little after. The deal is that Ronda has a hard out. She has a date, she gave a final date. I talked to someone in the company about this being a WrestleMania match, and they said that she’ll be out before WrestleMania.

It was reported that Ronda Rousey wanted a match against Shayna Baszler. Rousey’s broken arm messed up plans, but they want that match to happen. After all, Baszler was the person who got Rousey into pro wrestling in the first place. Now, we will have to see what happens, but this match needs to go down before Ronda Rousey’s deal is up.

Ronda Rousey’s return to WWE excited a lot of fans, and it brought some fresh interest to the company. The fact is that Ronda made her money before WWE, so she doesn’t need to stick around. She wanted one last run, and that’s what she got.

We will have to see how much longer Ronda Rousey will be around, and whether WWE will get her to ink a new deal. With way, it will certainly be interesting to see unfold.

Ronda Rousey has a ton of fans who came with her to WWE, but how many will stick around? Sound off in the comments to let us know what you think!
