Ronda Rousey Could End Up In WWE Very Soon
With her MMA career likely complete, UFC star Ronda Rousey is looking to make her next career move. The first-ever UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion is reportedly close to signing a deal to wrestle for WWE.
The news comes from USA Today, which cites two sources claiming Rousey is working out the details on her move from MMA to professional wrestling. Given her connection to WWE over the past several months--and even years--it's clear she has a major interest in becoming a wrestler.
After making her first WWE appearance in 2015 at WrestleMania 31, in which she joined Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Triple H, and Stephanie McMahon for an in-ring segment, Rousey teased the idea that she had a future in wrestling. She then appeared in the audience during the 2017 Mae Young Classic women's tournament, supporting fellow MMA fighter Shayna Baszler.
Now, with Baszler making a name for herself in WWE as part of the NXT roster, it's a good time for Rousey to join the fold. At just 30 years old, the former MMA champion could have a long professional wrestling career ahead of her. While she would surely need some training to acclimate to working as a wrestler, rather than a fighter, Rousey can become a marquee player in WWE.
Then again, there's always the possibility that Rousey decides not to make the jump in the end. After spending years on the octagon, perhaps she'd rather sit back, relax, and enjoy the fruits of her labor.
Of course, it'd be much more exciting for her to not only join WWE but help raise the profile of the women's division even higher. Who wouldn't want to see Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair for a Women's Championship at WrestleMania?
