Ronda Rousey Reportedly Set To Finalize Contract With The WWE
The details haven’t been revealed, but one of the worst-kept secrets in MMA and professional wrestling seems to be moving closer to a complete reveal, Per USA Today, former UFC women’s bantamweight champion and mixed martial arts pioneer Ronda Rousey is reportedly close to finalizing a deal to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming a WWE superstar. Rousey has teased a career with the WWE and even appeared at WrestleMania, but Wednesday’s story looks like the most definitive information on an official career change.
UFC President Dana White recently talked down a potential return to the Octagon and seemed more in favor of Rousey pursuing other endeavors outside of the promotion. It’s easy to imagine one of those options might include a career in the WWE.
It seems doubtful Rousey would ever become a full-time WWE wrestler. The schedule required is a rigorous one that wouldn’t allow her to do the movies and TV appearances she has made in recent years.
A part-time schedule similar to the one Brock Lesnar enjoys seems much more realistic. The WWE already planted a seed for a future feud between Rousey and Charlotte Flair. It’s likely this will be the angle Rousey works once she actually makes her debut on WWE television.
