If you take her word for it, Ronda Rousey will not be appearing as a surprise entrant in the first-ever all-women’s Royal Rumble match.
Although she has long been rumored as one of the betting favorites for the match, which goes down this Sunday at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as part of the first joint-brand WWE pay-per-view event of 2018, the former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion told TMZ that she will not be appearing at the event.
According to “Rowdy” Ronda, she will be traveling to Columbia to film the movie Mile 22 with Mark Wahlberg and John Malkovich and thus will not be in the country to make an appearance a reality.
“I’m actually leaving to Colombia right now to finish shooting ‘Mile 22’ and won’t be back until mid February,” Rousey told the popular celebrity gossip website.
