UPDATE: Over the weekend, WWE Hall of Famer Ric “The Nature Boy” Flair said that Ronda Rousey’s WWE contract was for “only one year”. In an update on this, multiple sources have confirmed that Rousey’s current WWE contract is a multi-year deal.
Flair said in an interview over the weekend that a Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair match would have to happen within the year, “because Ronda, I think Ronda’s only signed a one year deal and she’s out of there. She wants to have kids and all that.” You can check out the original interview below.
For what it’s worth, Rousey did say that she wanted to have kids soon in a pre-WrestleMania 34 interview. She said, “We’re ready to start having kids soon and I was thinking about what I’ve left unfinished in my life because I want to entirely focus on having kids when that time comes. I took a long look at my life and thought that if I don’t try and take a shot with the WWE, I would regret it for the rest of my life.”
ORIGINAL: According to Ric “The Nature Boy” Flair, Ronda Rousey’s current WWE contract is only a one-year deal. The WWE Hall of Famer revealed the news during a recent interview with reporter Chris Van Vliet.
Flair said, “I’m not involved obviously in any of their thinking, but if they’re ever gonna put the women where they belong, this is the year because Ronda, I think Ronda’s only signed a one year deal and she’s out of there. She wants to have kids and all that. So why not?”
For what it’s worth, Rousey has said in the past that she wants to have children. If Ric Flair’s comments are accurate, Rousey’s deal would be up before WrestleMania 35 as she signed with WWE prior to the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event in January. You can listen to the interview below:
