Ronda Rousey Discusses Returning to the Ring, Current WWE Women’s Roster, More

Ronda Rousey has not been seen in a WWE ring since walking away to start a family after her history-making main event match at this year’s Wrestlemania. Rousey has not announced that she is pregnant, so no baby news to report yet although her husband Travis Browne has two sons from a previous relationship. Rousey recently sat down with People to discuss if she has plans to return to the ring anytime soon.

“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.”

Rousey went on to tell People that she is in no rush to return to the ring because she feels the women’s roster is doing amazing without her.

“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.”

Rousey finally went on to explain how she never wants to steal the spotlight or be a hindrance, feeling that the women may be better off without her right now.

“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.”

Matt’s Musings: Very few people made an impact as quickly and strongly in the wrestling world as Ronda Rousey. It is unquestionable that she helped shine a spotlight on the women’s division and helped bring it to levels it’s never reached before. Hopefully, Rousey can find the balance between work and family that she is looking for, as I for one would love to see her back in a WWE ring.
