Major WWE Star Won’t Be 100% Healed For WrestleMania
‘Rowdy’ Ronda Rousey is expected to be part of a huge title match at WrestleMania 39 but after aggravating an injury, her place on the card has been in some doubt.
Reports had suggested that Rousey’s WrestleMania plans had changed as she pushed to be part of a match for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship where she’d team with her long-time friend Shayna Baszler.
Those titles are currently held by Becky Lynch and Lita, who after Raw in Boston, are set for a big six-woman tag team match at WrestleMania as they team with WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus to take on Damage CTRL. However, with the mammoth event taking place over two nights, there still could be a place for Lynch and Lita to defend their gold.
Ronda Rousey recently missed a scheduled SmackDown match due to an injury and speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that Rousey’s injury doesn’t look like it will be 100% healed by WrestleMania while also suggesting the WWE Women’s Tag Team Title match is still a part of the plan:
“They still have a tag title match. There’s gonna be two matches coming out of this program. Whoever are the champions will wrestle Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler, but they’re also doing the six-woman tag.
“I don’t know if Dakota and SKY are going to win the belts back or if it will be Lita and Becky Lynch, but Rousey and Baszler are still getting the tag team title shot as has been planned all along and likely winning them. Unless Rousey’s injury doesn’t heal. Which they are, right now, of the impression that she’s not gonna be 100% healed, but the impression is that she would be ready to do the match.”
Ronda Rousey made history in her second WrestleMania bout back in 2019 alongside Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair as they became the first women to headline the sports entertainment spectacular.
