Most Noticeable Return: Ronda Rousey

This week’s most noticeable return was Ronda Rousey. Even though WWE originally stated that Ronda would appear regularly on Raw but as evidenced by the episodes since WrestleMania, that has not been the case, which has been proven as Ronda has only appeared three times on Raw since WrestleMania. With her challenging Nia Jax at Money in the Bank next month, Ronda Rousey should appear more often than not in the lead up to her title match.

Is there someone you wish WWE would use more? Let us know in the comments!

Wrestling is my life. It's the only thing I am 100% passionate about. I started watching it when I was about six years old. The first event I saw was a VHS tape of SummerSlam 1991. My favorite wrestlers of all time are The Undertaker, Kane, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho and Edge. My favorite wrestlers right now are Millie McKenzie, Baron Corbin, The Miz, Rhea Ripley, Becky Lynch, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. Wrestling is definitely my main passion.
