Former WWE Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey has named who she wants to face in WWE after confirming she’ll be returning.
After WWE President Nick Khan announced that Rousey will be back at some point in the future, she followed up by explaining she’ll be back “when she feels like it”.
Speaking on D-Von Dudley’s Table Talk podcast, Ronda Rousey named the likes of Rhea Ripley and Bianca Belair among her dream opponents, saying:
“Given the fact that we never worked together before and that we had a day and a half to put the whole thing together, I really think me and Charlotte (Flair) had a lot of great chemistry, but Nattie, we had less time. That was my first match ever on the fly, and I was literally crying in the match because I was so afraid. We just made it a part of the story. The fact that we were able to make the match as we went along, I think we really had a special kind of chemistry. I would really love to have a match that we really didn’t prepare for.
“One person that I’m capable of doing the most with is Nia (Jax) because she’s really really strong. I don’t have to worry about hurting her. I feel like I’ve had some great matches with her. My first singles was with her. We’ve also gone through that storyline already. We’ve done all that we could. I really like having someone really strong that I can work with that I can use as a base but can also base of me. I would really love to work with Rhea Ripley.
“Whenever I work with somebody, I think, what is it that I could do only with them and they can do only with me. I think of one thing that we can do that is entirely unique in our match that only we can do, which there’s a lot of things I can think of for me and Rhea. Bianca (Belair) too, honestly. They’re both really really strong chicks that I feel like I can lift as well. I think I have the most options with them, and I’m just so glad that there’s some new faces and blood coming into the division as well.”
Rousey has been out of action since WrestleMania 35 in April 2019, and her WWE contract will have expired by now unless she’s signed a new one or an extension.
Nick Khan also confirmed that Becky Lynch will be making her return soon after being out since April 2020 due to pregnancy before giving birth in December.
