Rousey debuted for WWE at last year's Royal Rumble, and she had her first match at WrestleMania 34 in a winning effort over Triple H and Stephanie McMahon alongside Kurt Angle. Those rumblings are apparently premature, however.

Longtime professional wrestling reporter Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer recently reported Rousey would be taking a leave of absence from WWE.

"It would be kind of cool to just keep acting and then one day, 'Hey, surprise twist, I'm pregnant.' That would be fun", she said.

However, TMZ reports that news of Rousey's departure has been exaggerated and that she is contracted with the WWE through 2021. Mickie James, for example, took time away from in-ring wrestling to have a baby and returned to wrestling.

"I wouldn't be leaving home unless it was to do the most fantastic things ever and I really, really do enjoy it and love it, but all that energy I spend on the WWE is energy I don't spend on my family", Rousey, who is married to UFC fighter Travis Browne, said in an emotional video in November.

Huawei has close ties to China's military and is considered one of the country's most successful worldwide enterprises. He also thanked McCallum for his 20 years of public service. "And the United States is highly aware of that", he said.

Rousey will defend the title this Sunday at the Royal Rumble against 4-time Raw Women's Champion Sasha Banks.

Meltzer noted that Sydal has received interest from AEW, WWE, and IMPACT. "It could also change if she starts a family and decides that her main priorities lie elsewhere, but as of now she still has time left on her multi-year deal". "But how do you go about doing that? First time he's been on the road for WWE in quite some time and he is scheduled to be there at the Rumble and, I am told at the TV's so he may return in some way, shape or form this coming week". Or should you stop and go try and get pregnant?

The former UFC star made her WWE debut at the Royal Rumble past year and had her first match at Wrestlemania 34 in a tag-team match with Kurt Angle against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

However, with these rumours now going around, it looks unlikely that WWE is going to put more importance on somebody they would rather have in a backstage role.
