In an interview with FOX Sports’ Colin Cowherd on the podcast, The Colin Cowherd Podcast, WWE president Nick Khan was the guest and spoke on a number of topics with WrestleMania 37 this weekend. During the conversation, the returns of Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey were brought up. Khan revealed that Lynch will be back “in the not too distant future” while Rousey will also be returning soon as well.
Here’s the full quote from the show:
“Ronda is going to be coming back at a certain point in time. Becky Lynch, she just had her first baby, she will be coming back at a certain point in time in the not too distant future,” Khan said on the show, as transcribed first by Fightful.
Becky Lynch has been off WWE television since May 11, where she relinquished the Raw Women’s Championship due to pregnancy. She has since delivered her child in December and it began to spark many WWE fans with the hope Lynch could return to the company somewhere down the line. Her last match was at WrestleMania 36, successfully defending the Raw Women’s Championship against Shayna Baszler.
Ronda Rousey’s involvement in Khan’s interview must mean that both she and WWE have kept in contact since her departure following WrestleMania 35 where she main evented with Lynch and Charlotte Flair.
There is no official word from WWE regarding either Lynch or Rousey’s return.
