WWE has pushed back a big match from Survivor Series to WrestleMania 34.
WWE is planning a big match that involves former UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey. There was speculation that WWE was planning to have the Four Horsewomen of MMA face the Four Horsewomen of NXT at the upcoming Survivor Series PPV (pay-per-view) event.
However, it doesn’t appear that it will happen as the Four Horsewomen of NXT already has a match lined up for the event.
Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE officials are still planning on doing the Horsewomen vs. Horsewomen match. Instead of it taking place at Survivor Series, it is being planned for WrestleMania 34.
As to why the match has been pushed back until then is because will give Ronda and the other Horsewomen more time to get ready for the match.
Also, the argument is that Rousey’s first match in WWE will bring a ton of publicity with it so they might as well keep it for the biggest platform, which would be Wrestlemania.
If you recall, Rousey did an in-ring segment with The Rock, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon at WrestleMania 31 back in 2015 in which she got physical with McMahon. Flair and Rousey have been teasing a match against each for what seems like forever. Rousey has been training for her professional wrestling career over the last few months.
WrestleMania 34 is set to be held on April 8, 2018, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. This event airs on pay-per-view (PPV) and WWE Network and is the most successful and longest-running professional wrestling event in history. Both Raw and SmackDown rosters will be featured on the card.
Last month in an interview with Sky Sports, Triple H, who is the Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative for the WWE, made it clear that the interest between WWE and Rousey is mutual.
"Ronda has made no secret her whole career that she has been a huge fan of WWE growing up," Triple H told Sky Sports News. "She has been on record saying WWE is probably some of the most fun that she has ever had in her entire career. I have been out there publicly saying that if she wants the opportunity, I am happy to give it to her. She is looking for the opportunity, so it seems like a perfect match-up. I am excited to have the conversation with her and see where it goes."
