Ronda Rousey tried to trick fans with a fake live stream just before her return to WWE at the Royal Rumble.

Ronda Rousey returned to WWE at the Royal Rumble last month, appearing for the first time since she left WWE in April 2019 after WrestleMania 35.

Rousey’s return was heavily reported the week of the show, but that didn’t stop the former UFC star from still trying to keep things a surprise.

The former UFC star was so adamant that she wanted to keep her comeback to WWE a surprise that she even tried to trick fans.

Taking to her Facebook stream, Rousey admitted that she actually faked a live stream during the Royal Rumble to try and trick fans.

She explained that she pre-recorded a stream, but presented it as if it was live on January 29, so people would think that she wasn’t going to be at the rumble.

“I don’t know if I should apologize or just put the record straight that we did our first-ever non-live stream. So we did a little bit of kayfabe stream for you guys so I could sneak out for Royal Rumble. Cause it got leaked that I was going to be there. And, what’s it called? We recorded a VR stream and played it as if it was live.

However, the former Raw Women’s Champion explained that her “diehard” fans would have known the live stream was fake, as she always goes on Instagram to announce her streams, but didn’t this time:

“But the real diehards knew it was recorded because I usually go live on Instagram to announce my streams, but I just posted it. I didn’t go live to say that and there were a lot of people like (looks surprised). So, the perceptive ones knew I was staging it. But, I’m glad it got the reaction that it did.”

Ronda Rousey ended up turning up in the women’s Royal Rumble match at number 28, last eliminating Charlotte Flair to win the entire match.
