Ronda Rousey was backstage on SmackDown with Four Horsewomen amid WWE future uncertainty | WWE | Sport


Rousey was not alone when WWE came for a show in her homestate as she was joined by the rest of the MMA Four Horsewomen Marina Shafir, Jessamyn Duke and NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler.

Shafir shared a story on Instagram showing her hanging out and having a good time with her fellow fighters and reports claim they were backstage before SmackDown kicked off.

There’s no word as to why they all attended the event but they could have been there to shoot some content for the WWE Network.

Baszler, Duke and Shafir are performing on NXT and rumours suggest the NXT Women’s Champion may be called up in the near future.

Rousey hasn’t been seen on WWE TV ever since she lost the RAW Women’s Championship to Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 35 in a Winner Takes All Triple Threat Match that also included then SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair.

The UFC Hall of Famer broke her hand during the first ever all-women’s main event match in WrestleMania history and needed surgery.

However, The Baddest Woman on the Planet is set for a long hiatus regardless of her fitness as she is now focused on having a family with her husband Travis Browne.

The ex-RAW Women’s Champion even hinted at the possibility of retirement as she may decide to concentrate entirely on her child.

Rousey recently said: “As for WWE plans in the future.

“We want to have a baby first.

“I don’t know what it’s like to have a baby.

“I can look down at this beautiful child and be like, ‘F**k everything, I don’t care about anything else other than this baby and you’ll never see me again’.

“Or I could be like my mum who trained while she was eight months pregnant and then won the US Open [in judo] six weeks after giving birth, which is unbelievable.

“I don’t think I’m going to try and aspire to her level.

“But I’m just saying, you never know.

“Thing is, I don’t want to make any promises about the future when I don’t know how I’m gonna feel in the future.

“So thank you for your support, I had the most amazing time this year.

“I’m also looking forward to a little bit of rest and some mummy-daddy time.”
