Following the release of video evidence showing Ronda Rousey striking an official on Saturday during Summer Slam at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, she has been given an indefinite suspension by the WWE.
Rousey, who is 35 years old, is seen on video footage tossing referee Dan Engler to the mats while still retaining her grasp on the official shortly after she was defeated by Liv Morgan in the battle for the women’s title.
The words, “Rousey’s going to be penalized, or perhaps worse!” can be heard coming from an announcer. According to people, many of the occurrences that take place within the ring during a professional wrestling match are staged.
According to reports, suspensions that take place as a result of such pre-planned occurrences are aimed to provide wrestlers with a respite from competing in their sport.
According to the outlet, in response to the incident, WWE issued a statement saying that they have suspended Ronda Rousey from all scheduled events and that the suspension is effective immediately.
There is currently no information available on her future plans with WWE. According to people’s observations, Engler either was unaware of Morgan’s tap-out or chose to ignore it after the match.
Ronda Rousey appeared to take out her apparent wrath on Engler, as she quickly grabbed his arm, violently twisted it, and slammed him roughly to the mats.
He was being quite dramatic as he collapsed to the ground and flailed around. The clip shows that Engler strained for a number of seconds to free himself from Rousey’s hold as time elapsed.

She looked to have complete control on Engler by applying pressure to him and grabbing him with both her knees and arms while the crowd yelled in the background.
According to what can be heard on the video, the announcer yelled out for someone to “Get in there and aid the ref!” After some time, another official entered the ring and was able to successfully bring a stop to the issue.
At this year’s SummerSlam, Ronda Rousey is going on a raging spree! The announcer yelled it aloud. In the video, he continued by saying, “Ronda Rousey has lost it!”
