Early rumors suggested Ronda Rousey could be challenging Charlotte for the SmackDown women’s championship at WrestleMania 34, and that would seem to make sense with her interrupting Asuka while she was trying to make a decision on which title go after following her Royal Rumble victory. However, that may not be the case.
According to the Wrestling Observer, the actual plan, at least as of now, looks to be putting together the tag team match they teased all the way back at WrestleMania 31 in 2015: Triple H and Stephanie McMahon vs. Ronda Rousey and The Rock.
They note, however, that it’s unclear if they can actually do that match, considering The Rock’s insanely busy schedule and ability to wrestle with his movie deals. He got injured during a match against John Cena years ago and it affected his film work.
WWE did a post-Royal Rumble interview with Rousey and asked her about pointing at the WrestleMania sign and what it could mean. All she said was:
“I think that’s a pretty big fat hint that I’m going to be at WrestleMania, yeah.”
She wouldn’t give anything away, of course.
They did tease something with Rousey and Stephanie during the Royal Rumble, but that was just Ronda walking over and gleefully shaking hands with the Raw Commissioner. For her part, McMahon was hesitant.
Thankfully, WWE is already teasing answers are to come on Monday Night Raw this week, so we may not have to wait long to get an answer, or at least a better idea.
