In case you didn't know...

Mixed Martial Arts legend and UFC Hall of Famer "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey is considered by many to be one of the most important box office attractions in combat sports history.

Rousey officially debuted as a WWE Superstar in January of 2018, and went on to capture the WWE RAW Women's Championship.

RAW Women's Champion Ronda Rousey vs. SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch -- a Triple Threat Match -- headlined WrestleMania 35, with Lynch pinning Rousey to become the first Superstar to unify the RAW and SmackDown Women's titles.

The heart of the matter

Following the conclusion of WrestleMania 35, rumors have been rife that Ronda Rousey is likely to take an extended break from in-ring professional wrestling competition and the WWE as a whole.

Fightful now reports that Rousey was present backstage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, for this week's tapings of Monday Night RAW i.e., the RAW after 'Mania.

Furthermore, it's being noted that the reasons behind Rousey not appearing on-screen during RAW; were because she's currently dealing with a hand injury, besides also considering the fact that she has planned on taking some time off from the WWE.
