Former Women’s Champion Possibly Returning To Smackdown Tonight

WWE SmackDown Arena

A former WWE Women’s Champion may be returning to this week’s Smackdown event following an absence that lasted over one month.

Ronda Rousey has yet to appear on WWE TV in 2023. The last time she was on Smackdown was on the December 30th episode when she lost the SD Women’s Title to Charlotte Flair in about 45 seconds.

Even though Rousey won the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble, she did not appear in this year’s Women’s Royal Rumble match.

It has been reported by PWInsider that Ronda Rousey has been seen in Connecticut tonight ahead of tonight’s Smackdown episode taking place at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT.

With regard to her WrestleMania match, it is believed that Rousey will team up with Shayna Baszler in a Women’s Tag Team Title match against the current champions, Dakota Kai & IYO SKY.

During her WWE career, Rousey is a former Raw Women’s Champion and a two-time Smackdown Women’s Champion with both of those reigns happening in 2022.

WWE is currently advertising two matches for tonight’s Smackdown:

* The Usos defending the Smackdown Tag Team Titles against Braun Strowman & Ricochet.

* There will also be a Fatal 4-Way Match to determine who will challenge Intercontinental Champion between Madcap Moss, Rey Mysterio, Karrion Kross & Santos Escobar.

We will have a full review of Smackdown later tonight on TJRWrestling.
