There has been another twist which took place in the story of Ronda Rousey in WWE because the company has claimed to have suspended the star for her actions at the 2022 SummerSlam.
Ronda Rousey to be absent from WWE SmackDown this week
WWE announced thatt Ronda Rousey has been suspended and has also been charged with an undisclosed amount of penalty, and this happened after she attacked referee Dan Engler at SummerSlam.
She will not appear on SmackDown this week, the WWE further added. At SummerSlam, Rousey lost to Liv Morgan and was complaining that Morgan had tapped out before she was put into submission.
Since WrestleMania 35, the 2022 Royal Rumble was the first time when Rousey returned to WWE. She made instant swash by winning the 30-woman match, earning a title shot at WrestleMania 38.
After a three year hiatus away from WWE, the former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion returned to the squared circle this January. Even though she was supposed to return as a heel, Rousey received a positive reaction while she appeared at the Royal Rumble, which was a surprise to her.
“I was expecting that! I came out with my guard up, and I think I didn’t get to enjoy that moment, because…that’s what I got on the way out,” Rousey told Daniel Cormier on The DC Check-In back in June, “I blocked them out and I didn’t let them in. And I just went in and did my job and got out, and I think I kind of missed out on really enjoying that moment because I was expecting the worst in people. And that’s how the WWE Universe gets you.”
“Vince [McMahon] was like, well they popped for her real big, so she’s babyface now. So I recorded a heel interview afterwards, and everyone was like, what the hell? The next Monday I’m like, okay I’m coming in as a heel, and they’re like, no…you need to smile. You need to stop being a b—,” she added. [H/T Cageside Seats]
As for her return to Television, Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio stated that Rousey will be seen in action at Clash at the Castle taking place this 3rd September.
“She’s booked on the Cardiff show. So she’s going to be unsuspended at least before [that]. I don’t know how long, but it’s not going to be a month, to put it that way, because she’s got to be back for the PPV show,” said Meltzer. [H/T Wrestling Inc]
