Ronda Rousey made a surprise appearance for Ring of Honor Friday, fueling speculation the former UFC and WWE star will be signing with AEW.

Rousey appeared at Ring of Honor’s show in Los Angeles, appearing as the tag team partner for Marina Shafir as the two faced off against Ring of Honor Women’s World Champion Athena and Billie Starkz. Rousey entered the Kia Forum with her signature music of ‘Bad Reputation’ by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts.

The appearance came one day after Rousey made her debut at Wrestling Revolver, also teaming with Shafir against Athena and Starkz. That match would end in disqualification.

Will Ronda Rousey go to AEW?

The Ring of Honor show Rousey was in was taped after All Elite Wrestling’s ‘Rampage’ show, as the company has its pay-per-view, Full Gear, taking place Saturday in Los Angeles.

With Ring of Honor also owned by AEW owner Tony Kahn, wrestling fans have speculated if this means she will soon be the next star on the AEW roster. On Wednesday, Kahn said in a social media post that AEW ‘has agreed to terms with one of the world’s best wrestlers’ and they would be signing their contract at Full Gear.

Rousey last appeared for WWE in August after losing to Shayna Baszler in an MMA rules match at SummerSlam. After the loss, she said in an Instagram post that Baszler was ‘the reason I got into this business’ and she now had ‘no reason to stay,’ hinting that her wrestling career was over. The 36-year-old’s contract with WWE then ended.
