Last updated

It has been revealed that there have been some massive changes to the Women’s Royal Rumble 2023 event this weekend.

According to a new report from Fightful, Ronda Rousey was the main reason for these changes, which the site revealed on its Patreon subscription service.

“Fightful Select has learned that the Ronda Rousey Smackdown Women’s Title defense against Raquel Rodriguez that took place on December 30, was actually originally planned to go down almost a full month later” the site began.

Women’s Royal Rumble Match changes and rumors

“Fightful has gained information that displays that the match was set for the WWE Royal Rumble as of early December. However, the move was made to add Rousey and Raquel’s match, and Charlotte Flair’s subsequent return and win to add more to the show.

“Another interesting note is that several WWE plans have changed as a result of this in relation to it. At the same period, Charlotte Flair was tentatively scheduled on a ‘suggested matches’ list to wrestle Bianca Belair for the Raw Women’s Championship. Rhea Ripley was set to take on Rousey, but that’s when Rousey was still Champion” Fightful concluded.
