Rousey reportedly agreed to one year with WWE as a full-time wrestler, including appearances at nearly every episode of Monday Night RAW, top matches at each pay-per-view, and somewhat surprisingly, a relatively hefty amount of live event performances.
Rousey, 31, has talked about wanting to start a family and has struggled with the time at home that the grueling WWE schedule forces her to miss. Along with her world-class athleticism as a former bronze Olympic medalist in judo, the crispness of her move set remain unique to any WWE superstar, male or female.

After Rousey's interference at TLC in the Triple Threat TLC Match for the SmackDown Women's Championship, there is also speculation that Charlotte Flair or Becky Lynch could be looking for revenge this Sunday. TMZ said, citing "multiple sources", that she is "super happy" with her WWE run and is not going to depart "for good".
Rousey herself agreed that she does have plans to have kids, but those have never been concrete. While the loss was in tag team action, and it was Rousey's partner Natalya who tapped out, it gives Banks some much-needed momentum headed into the Royal Rumble. "When I first met with Triple H, I told him, 'There are other things I can do with my time that'll make way more money, but I won't enjoy almost as much'".

The feud between Rousey and Banks has turned into a contentious one, and it's one of the most highly anticipated matches on the card. "I can't do it all, I have to pick one thing", she said.
"But all that energy I spend on the WWE is energy I don't spend on my family".
