Ronda Rousey is no longer being advertised to appear in the WWE Raw 30th anniversary show. The Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, the venue for the show, updated its listing yesterday and one prominent name missing was Rousey’s, alongside Matt Riddle, whose removal is expected due to his WWE status. Interestingly, Rousey’s name was also taken out of the WWE Events website listing.
Some names who continue to be listed include Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair, Becky Lynch, Bobby Lashley, Damage CTRL, and The Judgment Day. More intriguingly, the arena is also advertising Seth Rollins taking on WWE United States Champion Austin Theory.

When it comes to WWE legends, the likes of Tatanka revealed recently that he was invited to the RAW 30th-anniversary show. Hall of Famers Ric Flair and Kurt Angle also indicated that they are also in talks to appear, with fellow alumni Kane and Sean “X-Pac” Waltman expected to show up as well.
There have also been reports that WWE wants to make this event a “major Raw episode” to celebrate 30 years of its flagship TV show. The 30th-anniversary episode airs on January 23 and is being billed as “RAW Is XXX.”
