It was long assumed that Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey would eventually square off in a singles match, but that hasn’t happened and doesn’t seem likely to happen.

Their feud goes back years, as they were originally scheduled to wrestle at Survivor Series in 2018. However, it was canceled after Lynch was punched by Nia Jax in a Raw brawl, and she made a concession that resulted in her being pulled from the bout and replaced by Charlotte Flair.

Lynch defeated Rousey and Flair in the main event at WrestleMania 35 in 2019. Rousey took a break and will not compete again until the Royal Rumble in January 2022. She left at last year’s SummerSlam and has since criticized the company and Vince McMahon, though she has spoken positively about Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

While doing a LiveSigning session with her sister, Maria Burns-Ortiz, to promote her new book, Rousey discussed how the match never happened in the first few minutes of the stream.

“Well, I really wanted to have that singles with Becky Lynch that constantly got dangled in front of me. I never got to have, which you can read about in our book at You can get it at and hear me b*tch about that for a couple hundred pages.”

Rousey stated that the fight that could bring her out of retirement would be against Gina Carano, which was a dream fight for her, before announcing that her MMA career was over.
