The wrestling world is still buzzing from the aftermath of WWE’s SummerSlam event. One of the most significant revelations to emerge is the departure of a massive WWE superstar, Ronda Rousey.

Leading up to SummerSlam, there were whispers and speculations about Rousey’s future with the company. Now, it’s confirmed that she has indeed wrapped up her time with WWE, at least for the foreseeable future.

Ronda Rousey’s exit from WWE wasn’t abrupt. There were numerous reports suggesting that she was contemplating wrapping up her stint shortly after SummerSlam. However, the exact timeline remained shrouded in mystery.

It’s now clear that her match at SummerSlam was a farewell, according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, at least for the time being. The way she exited the ring, putting Shayna Baszler over by allowing herself to be choked out, was a testament to her professionalism and respect for the wrestling business.
