Ronda Rousey hhas returned to WWE – and is the current year’s women’s Royal Rumble winner.
The “Baddest Woman on the Planet” was a not-so shock entrant in the match during the per-view from The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis on Saturday. Rousey, 34, will currently decide to face SmackDown women’s champion Charlotte Flair – who she eliminated to win the Royal Rumble – at WrestleMania 38 from AT&T Stadium in Dallas on April 3-4.
Rousey entered the Royal Rumble match at No. 28 to a huge pop. But gone was the gear paying homage to “Rowdy Roddy” Piper. Rather Rousey was dress in all black with “Baddest” across her chest in white. She also eliminated both Bella Twins, Shotzi and with a major grin teamed up with fellow MMA Four Horsewomen Shayna Baszler just for a bit. The match’s final four was Rousey, Baszler, Flair and Bianca Belair.

The Wrestling Observer reported Saturday that Rousey was back with WWE for a year and would be a regular on “Friday Night SmackDown” and that her versus Flair would occur at WrestleMania this year, saving a possible clash with Lynch for next year in Los Angeles.
