Ronda Rousey suffered a broken right hand during the main event of WrestleMania 35. Dave Meltzer of MMAFighting.com and WrestlingObserver.com reports that the injury stemmed from a punch that she threw. The story also states that the plan has always been for Rousey to win the women’s championship, lose it at WrestleMania, and take time away.
Powell’s POV: Rousey is advertised for tonight’s Raw and the story notes that it’s the final date she’s advertised for. Rousey has spoken in the past about taking time away to start a family, but she has not committed publicly to the idea that this break will occur immediately after WrestleMania 35.
