The Real Reason Ronda Rousey Missed 'Monday Night Raw'

Jon Jones Brock Lesnar

"So I can't think of the last time I was so excited for anything". WWE legends Brock Lesnar and CM Punk both made the journey - with varying degrees of success - so it isn't beyond the realm of possibility that the 31-year-old Rousey could one day do the same. Speculation is Braun vs. Cesaro and Sheamus in a Handicap Match in New Orleans or Braun being put with Elias to form a new tag team.

It looks like Rousey has been pulled from more upcoming episodes of Monday Night Raw, as she's now only being advertised for the April 2nd episode from Atlanta, Georgia. But, now that it's 2018, and because Rousey's signed with the WWE, the consensus seems to be that her fighting career is over.

Charlotte Flair showed why she is the biggest star in SmackDown's Women's division beating Ruby Riott to the title on Sunday's Flashpoint.

Also on Raw, Cena, having failed in his bid to become WWE Champion at Fastlane Sunday, said that he was going back to his original plan of challenging The Undertaker in order to have a match at WrestleMania. Stephanie apologized, but then Triple H sucker punched Angle.


"It's like a team", Rousey said.

Rousey was scheduled for every WWE episode of Raw until WrestleMania 34.

Ronda Rousey appeared on Ellen this morning to discuss her transition from the UFC to pro wrestling. Do you think it's a mistake to only have her on the RAW before Mania instead of having the former UFC women's bantamweight champ on every show? Rousey admitted that she's nervous, but it's not like she's "Olympics nervous". Have YOUR say in the comments section below, and the fourth episode of GiveMeSport's WWE podcast is here!
