With reports confirming that Ronda Rousey’s current WWE contract expires shortly after WrestleMania 37, fans are wondering if and when we’ll see the former UFC star return to the ring. During an interview with the New York Post this week, Paul Heyman shed some new light on the situation.
Heyman addressed the buzz surrounding some recent pictures of Rousey training in a pro wrestling ring, suggesting she’s gearing up for a WWE return. The ECW mastermind floated the possibility that Rousey might have signed a contract extension with the company.
“That’s another funny thing about people who don’t discuss their business in public forums, everyone presumes that Ronda Rousey’s contract expires at a certain time,” said Heyman. “I don’t understand why people don’t realize that perhaps, just perhaps, Ronda Rousey’s contract has been extended or she has worked out a new deal and it would not benefit either WWE or Ronda Rousey to go public with that information. But why wouldn’t people understand that it would be kept secret?”
Paul Heyman also implied that if Ronda Rousey does make her in-ring return, it will be on a big stage which rules out the possibility of the most dangerous woman on the planet making an appearance at WWE Thunderdome.
Apart from this, Paul also labeled Rousey as a trailblazer and said that the next time you see her; she will be making history in whatever she does.
