Backstage News on Ronda Rousey’s Appearance With AEW & Whether She Will Work With AEW

  • The significant development yesterday was the surprise appearance of Ronda Rousey at the ROH tapings, where she teamed up with her best friend Marina Shafir against Athena and Billie Starkz. As previously reported, they had a match at a REVOLVER show on Thursday and reprised the same bout for ROH. With Tony Khan overseeing both ROH and AEW, speculation naturally arises regarding Rousey’s potential appearance on AEW TV in the future.
  • According to a report from, Rousey and Khan have a handshake deal, and she has not signed with ROH, let alone committed to appearing on AEW. The hope is that her ROH appearance could boost subscriptions, and from Rousey’s perspective, she agreed to participate because she wanted to team with Shafir, similar to how she partnered with another close friend, Shayna Baszler, in WWE before her departure. For clarification, Rousey was not considered for the mystery signing set to be revealed at AEW Full Gear tonight.
