Update on Ronda Rousey’s status for the 2023 women’s WWE Royal Rumble match

As of Friday morning, only seven entrants have been announced for the 2023 women’s WWE Royal Rumble match. According to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com, there has been talk of different names being used for the Rumble matches and women from NXT are waiting to hear if anyone is going to be brought in.

Meltzer noted the following regarding Rousey’s status for the match…

“Ronda Rousey will not be in the Rumble (or at least that was the decision as of midweek) because of the feeling that they didn’t want to marginalize her star power by being just someone in the match since she wasn’t going to win it or be the focal point, and Charlotte Flair, rumored to be in, at press time was not to be in because she’s Smackdown champion.”
