We’re currently on the road to WrestleMania 39 and in recent weeks some big title matches have been announced for the event. For months now it’s been rumored that Ronda Rousey & Shayna Baszler would be challenging for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles on the Grandest Stage of Them All, but WWE has given no indication that they’ll be getting a title shot.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter recently shared an update on WWE’s plans for Ronda Rousey and it was noted that the title match was nixed because Ronda Rousey wasn’t going to be around to build it up.
“The decision was made to nix the planned storyline that was leading to Ronda Rousey & Shayna Baszler getting a shot (and presumably winning) the women’s tag titles. No direct reason was given, although the idea that Rousey has a fractured arm and thus wasn’t going to be around for a television build for a title match at Mania probably factored into it. The feeling is why throw on a WrestleMania title match when you can’t really build it effectively right now.”
Ronda Rousey & Shayna Baszler are still expected to compete in the fatal four-way tag team match WrestleMania Showcase match. So far Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez are the only team confirmed for the women’s fatal four-way. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
