Why Ronda Rousey was not on Raw Monday night

Last week, WWE.com ran an article that announced Ronda Rousey would be appearing on every episode of Raw leading up to WrestleMania next month. However, as seen on Monday night, that will not be the case.

Last week, WWE.com ran an article that announced Ronda Rousey would be appearing on every episode of Raw leading up to WrestleMania next month. However, as seen on Monday night, that will not be the case.

POST Wrestling was informed by one person inside WWE that the article was not given final approval and ran on the site. There were discussions about using Rousey anyway as there was concern over the fact they were already doing a “no show” storyline involving Brock Lesnar, but ultimately the decision was to keep Rousey off of television.

The article has since been removed from the WWE’s website and Rousey is no longer being advertised for next Monday’s Raw in Dallas or the following week’s episode in Cleveland, Ohio.

At this point, Rousey is only being promoted for the April 2nd episode of Raw in Atlanta, which is the final episode before WrestleMania.
