Some big changes have been made to Ronda Rousey's WWE schedule

Ronda Rousey is now training for her in-ring WWE debut at WrestleMania, but she recently took some time out to make the media rounds where she stopped by "The Ellen Show" to sit down with Ellen Degeneres to discuss a number of topics.

Throwing things around and letting out a furious scream, it was made abundantly clear her former best friend and current Raw women's champion was in trouble. There's still three shows before WrestleMania 34 on March 8th, and a few more showdowns between Rousey and The Authority would have likely dampened hype for her debut rather than escalated it.

It was surprising to see viewership increase to such a large degree, but that means WWE did something right on Monday. Having competed in the 2008 Summer Olympics in judo, and winning a bronze medal, Rousey seamlessly transitioned to MMA two years later and by 2013 she'd become the UFC's inaugural women's bantamweight champion. I care about her, and she's got enough money. She has done few interviews and the public has only learned of her lack of UFC plans via UFC president Dana White.

Since the loss to Nunes, Rousey's career has been in limbo.


Rousey's appearance on "Ellen" ended all hope of an imminent return to the UFC.

WWE has yet to supply a reason for the big change, but they did manage to take down their own article claiming Rousey would be a Road to WrestleMania stalwart. Her answer left pretty much no doubt that professional fighting is not in her future - with some wiggle room to walk it back.

Wrestling Observer Radio went through their latest rumor mill and came up with a fascinating nugget about Brock Lesnar's possible impending exit from WWE.
