Ronda Rousey broken hand

Last night’s double championship victory by Becky Lynch was not without controversy. There are reports this morning that the finish of last night’s main event did not go entirely as expected.

Meanwhile, Dave Meltzer is saying the planned finish of the match was Lynch pinning Rousey but Rousey’s shoulders coming up during the pin was not planned. He noted the planned finish was once to be a submission win for Lynch but it was later changed to a pinfall.

“At one point, the finish was going to be a submission finish,” Meltzer said on the WM35 main event. “There were a lot of people who were for it and a lot of people who were against it. In the end, the idea was a pinfall and not a submission.”

He would continue to say that Rousey’s shoulders coming up was accidental.

“She wasn’t supposed to get the shoulders up,” he continued. “It just happened.”

Rousey is also reported to have suffered a broken hand.

“I have some news,” Dave Meltzer said. “Ronda has a broken hand, a severely broken hand. She just was diagnosed with it.”

Some users on Twitter feel Rousey has had that hand wrapped for a few weeks now:

Future Plans For Ronda Rousey

According to comments made last night on Wrestling Observer Radio, there is no timetable for Rousey’s return to WWE.

“This was scheduled to be her last match,” Meltzer continued. “Will she come back at some point? Obviously, that’s up to her.”

WWE is moving forward assuming Rousey won’t be involved for some time, however.

“There is no timetable for Ronda Rousey at this point.”
