Ronda Rousey’s appearance at the Royal Rumble was a big deal and WWE received a massive amount of mainstream attention for the angle. But fans in Philly and around the world might have been disappointed that Rowdy Ronda wasn’t at Raw the next night
Rousey really is filming a movie in Columbia with Mark Wahlberg. After all, it took some clever maneuvering to get her to Philly for the Royal Rumble in the first place.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Rousey had to get back to Columbia to continue with the movie shoot. Evidently she only got a one-day pass to fly in for the Royal Rumble and then it was back to Mile 22.
Rousey previously stated when she was trying to convince fans that she wouldn’t be at the Royal Rumble that she would be back in the US in mid-February so it could only be a matter of time before Ronda Rousey shows back up. But it’s still unknown exactly what her full-time contract entails.
