It has been widely known now for some time by WWE fans that Ronda Rousey could very well be leaving the company for a little while after WrestleMania 35.
When Rousey initially signed with the WWE last year before the Royal Rumble, she would only be full-time for a year before she might need a break.
Although plans are subject to change, it looks like those plans could come into effect very soon with The Showcase of the Immortals just around the corner.
According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, via Cageside Seats, as of today, Rousey’s last date with WWE is the Monday Night Raw the night after WrestleMania 35.
That means we're potentially just over a month away from seeing the Raw Women's Champion walking away from the WWE to take a break.

This week on Raw, Ronda turned heel, telling the live crowd that she didn't care about their fantasies, before attacking both Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch, her two likely opponents for WrestleMania.
What happens next?
It has been speculated for months that the main event of this year's WrestleMania will be a triple threat between Rousey, Flair, and Lynch for the Raw Women's title, but WWE is yet to book this match.
However, this match could be officially booked the match this weekend at Fastlane if The Man beats The Queen in their match to earn her spot in the title bout back following her suspension.
Rousey is then widely expected to drop the title to Lynch in the main event of WrestleMania as well, which could be a pathway for her to take a hiatus from the company for a few months.
You can imagine on Raw the following night she'll use the fact the crowd wasn't behind her at the event as the reason for not wanting to be in the WWE anymore.
There's still plenty of storylines WWE can use Ronda for, including the Four Horsewomen storyline, so the company should still have plenty of uses for her if she decides to stick around instead.
However, in the past, Rowdy has spoken about wanting to start a family quite a few times, and although she hasn't confirmed it herself, this is expected to be the reason why she wants to step away from the ring for a little while.
Nevertheless, if Rousey does leave WWE for a few months, she will leave a huge hole in the women's division on Raw that she has created over the past year.
Lynch would be the most likely superstar to fill Ronda's gap in the women's division on Raw if she does leave, as she's been the biggest rising superstar in the WWE over the past year.
It has been reported as well that Becky, Charlotte, and Lacey Evans could be viewed by WWE as the top three booked women in the company if Rowdy decides to take a hiatus from the ring.News Now - Sport News
