When former UFC champion Ronda Rousey signed with the WWE, she told fans she was going to be a full-time star.

However, since her arrival, she hasn’t been around much and every week there is a question about whether Rousey will even be on WWE Monday Night Raw that night.

According to Ringside News, Ronda Rousey will not be on WWE Monday Night Raw tonight. As a matter of fact, her schedule for the next three months is very light when it comes to television appearances — which is rough since she has a PPV title match this month and is advertised on the promo materials for August’s SummerSlam PPV as well.

Rousey was on Raw last week and watched Nia Jax wrestle a smaller competitor before walking off without a physical confrontation with the current WWE women’s champion. This week, Natalya — a former women’s champion and a close friend of Rousey — is supposed to wrestle Nia Jax in her friend’s honor.

However, Rousey won’t be at Raw tonight to continue her angle against Nia Jax. The two are scheduled to wrestle at the Money in the Bank PPV on June 17 in Chicago. Rousey is scheduled to be at Monday Night Raw next week for the go-home show before the PPV and then again for the next two weeks of Raw episodes after the PPV (June 18 and June 25).

Cageside Seats reported that the actual match between Nia Jax and Ronda Rousey for the WWE Raw women’s title is also expected to be very short. The reason for this is likely due to Rousey’s inexperience as a wrestler and Jax’s limitations when working with lesser talents.
