Ronda Rousey says she pitched what would have been a highly controversial/entertaining prank to Paul Heyman recently. Unfortunately, Rousey will not be able to follow through with the idea.

Rousey revealed today on her website that she wanted to announce on the April 1st, 2019 episode of Monday Night RAW that she is pregnant. Not only that, Rousey would say because of her pregnancy she would not compete at WrestleMania and the women would not be in the main event. Then at the end of RAW, she would let the fans know it had all been an April Fools Day prank.

Ronda Rousey On Pregnancy Announcement Prank

Rousey explained the idea to RondaRousey.com. She was asked how she found out that her match would be headlining WrestleMania this year.

“I found out from Paul Heyman,” Rousey said. “And the reason I found out is I sent him this long text, basically saying: ‘Hey, Paul, let’s do an April Fool’s Day joke on April Fool’s Day on RAW, saying that I’m pregnant and that the women are no longer the main event in WrestleMania, because I’m out.’ Then at the end of the show, we can say, “April Fool’s!”

“Then he called me back immediately, and he said, ‘Yeah, great idea and all, but they’re going to announce to all major outlets and everything that the women are actually going to main event, this Monday. So we can’t do your April Fool’s Day joke. They’re making that official, official.’ I was like, oh, shoot! So yeah, Paul Heyman told me is the short version of the answer. But he told me to explain why I couldn’t do my April Fool’s Day joke and tell everyone I’m pregnant.”

Rousey also discusses watching WrestleMania growing up, whether she deserves the WM main event spot, and being “Mrs. WrestleMania”. the full interview can be read here.
