Last month, broke that UFC Hall of Famer and former Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey was in the middle of production for her new ESPN+ series.

The series, Peyton's Places, was originally designed to a purely a football-themed documentary series hosted and named for legendary quarterback Peyton Manning.  Disney announced last December that the series would expand to tell the stories of other sports with Rousey among those who will be hosting and taking part.

At the time, reported that a reader spotted Rousey filming in Philadelphia.  As it turns out, not only was she not alone, but she was actually also filming in one of the most historic professional wrestling venues of all time, South Philadelphia's 2300 Arena aka the former ECW Arena. has learned that Rousey filmed material with both Paul Heyman and D-Von Dudley while in Philadelphia, discussing the extreme history of pro wrestling in Philadelphia.  D-Von has been a regular on Rousey's YouTube channel while Heyman worked closely with Rousey during her WWE run.

We are told the filming inside the Arena included a wrestling ring from The Monster Factory (which is located in nearby Paulsboro, NJ) as well as a number of "weapons" as part of the set decoration.

As we reported last month, Rousey has been on the road filming in different cities and also filmed in Pittsburgh with WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle. 

There is no announced timetable when Rousey's series will debut on Disney's ESPN+ subscription service.

In April, Rousey and her husband Travis Browne announced they were expecting their first child together.

WWE President Nick Khan stated during a podcast appearance on Colin Cowherd's in April that Rousey would be returning to WWE.  She last performed for the company in the main event of Wrestlemania 35 against Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair.
