Report on why Ronda Rousey decided to make an appearance for the ROH brand

As previously noted, Ronda Rousey made her Ring of Honor debut after the AEW Collision/Rampage shows on November 17th 2023 in Inglewood, CA. According to Dave Meltzer of, Ronda is not looking at wrestling regularly and there are currently no plans for her to perform for AEW/ROH any time soon. Meltzer explained the situation…

“Her doing the ROH show was only basically a favor to alleviate a complex political issue and help her friend Marina Shafir. It had nothing to do with any current interest in signing a pro wrestling deal and from those very close to the situation, in no way made it more likely at all that if she did want to come back in a couple of years, that AEW would be her choice.”

After Full Gear, AEW/ROH President Tony Khan said they would love to have her back some time.”
