When Rousey won the title, some fans believed it was too soon for the "rookie" WWE star, however, if WWE officials knew prior to Rousey's TV debut that they would only have her on a full-time basis for one year, that knowledge might have played into the company's decision to fast-track her all the way to the top of the women's division. "Leave me and my reproductive organs alone".

Before Rousey gets to WrestleMania 35, she'll put her Raw Women's Championship on the line against Sasha Banks at the 2019 Royal Rumble Sunday night.

"I honestly don't know why [anyone] feels like [they're] an authority to speak on the plans for my uterus", she said.

Dave Meltzer in his Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported this week that Rousey was planning to leave the WWE after WrestleMania in April in order to start a family.

He wrote there is a "good chance" that Rousey will be "finishing up with WWE" following the show in New Jersey.

Rousey recently commented on the rumors during an interview with ESPN, and she said that she doesn't feel like she should have to respond to that kind of thing.

Rousey, 31, has talked about wanting to start a family and has struggled with the time at home that the grueling WWE schedule forces her to miss.


She has been rumoured to face SmackDown stars Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch in a Triple Threat match.

Rousey will likely walk into WrestleMania 35 undefeated with a title reign of well over 200 days.

"I took a long look at my life and thought that if I don't try and take a shot with the WWE, I would regret it for the rest of my life".

"It was always pretty much known it would be after this year's WrestleMania because she made close to a full-time commitment for one year to WWE, even though it was announced at the time she signed a multi-year full-time contract", the report read.

Rousey has defended her title against Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax and Natalya. "It's like being in Game of Thrones".

"If I'm playing Cersei, I don't give a sh- if you hate Cersei's guts, I care that you love Game of Thrones".
