Backstage Reaction to Lio Rush; News on Ronda Rousey's WWE Future

Lio Rush has been getting rave reviews backstage and has some "big supporters" according to a source. The heat he had on him early in his WWE career has largely dissipated and as per the source is a non-issue with officials now.

Ronda Rousey is still expected to take a bit of a leave of absence from WWE despite the lukewarm denial both by the company and Rousey herself. Sources tell us that she is either going to take her leave right after WrestleMania or very soon thereafter. Rousey remains under contract with WWE and so will be back for sure at some point.
