In an interview with the New York Post, Paul Heyman has suggested that Ronda Rousey has either extended her current WWE deal or signed a new one.
Rousey, who has not been seen on WWE television since her WrestleMania 35 main event loss, has departed WWE while still under a deal to start a family. A report by PWInsider.com last week said that Rousey has six months left on her current WWE contract.
Asked if we’ll see Rousey back on WWE television before the original deal runs out, Heyman said everyone presumes that Rousey’s deal expires at a certain time.
“I don’t understand why people don’t realize that perhaps, just perhaps, Ronda Rousey’s contract has been extended or she has worked out a new deal and it would not benefit either WWE or Ronda Rousey to go public with that information. But why wouldn’t people understand that it would be kept secret?” Heyman said.
Rousey worked closely with Heyman during her one-year run in the company, especially when it comes to writing promos and help in delivering those promos.
“Ronda Rousey is a trailblazer, and I would suggest the next time you see Ronda Rousey she will be making history in whatever she does,” Heyman said. “And if she does it with WWE, it will be something that will elevate the manner in which women’s wrestling is performed and presented because Ronda will never be the status quo. Ronda Rousey will always disrupt the status quo and create a new environment that all others must aspire to.”
