Ronda Rousey On Reports She's Leaving WWE In April: "Leave Me And My Reproductive Organs Alone"

If Ronda Rousey leaving WWE in April to start a family? That's none of our business according to Ronda Rousey.

Yesterday, the wrestling world went crazy after Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reported that the Raw Women's Champion would be finishing with WWE after WrestleMania. Pro Wrestling Sheet's Ryan Satin elaborated on the report, saying Rousey informed WWE in November that she would be taking time off after WrestleMania to start a family.

A WWE spokesperson stated that Rousey is under contract until April 2021 and called reports of Rousey wanting to start a family, "a private matter."

Today, Rousey is speaking out against the rumors.

"I honestly don't know why [anyone] feels like [they're] an authority to speak on the plans for my uterus," Rousey told ESPN. "If I responded every single time the world speculated what I was doing with my womb I would not have a free moment in the day. I really don't feel like I should have to respond to that kind of thing. It's my vagina, my life, keep the speculations to yourself. Leave me and my reproductive organs alone."

Rousey continued, noting that it's not a secret that she wants to start a family, but wondered how she would go about leaving WWE in order to do so.

"I love this way more than I thought that I would. So do you just keep going until you just happen to get pregnant? Or should you stop and go try and get pregnant? Or is going and trying to get pregnant putting yourself on the spot and then you're less likely to get pregnant? I've never had a baby before, I don't know these kinds of things," she said. "It would be kind of cool to just keep acting and then one day, 'Hey, surprise twist, I'm pregnant.' That would be fun. There's a lot of things up in the air. A lot of decisions that we've gotta make as a family. I'm trying to figure it out as I go along."

Rousey is scheduled to defend her Raw Women's Title this Sunday at WWE Royal Rumble against Sasha Banks.
