Ronda Rousey: WWE reportedly wants to sign UFC star after MMA career


We may know what Ronda Rousey will be doing once she is done in the UFC. It was reported a few months ago that Rousey would be making her comeback to the octagon at UFC 207 on December 30, 2016 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Her first match back since she suffered her first loss to Holly Holms will be against the current woman’s bantamweight champion, Amanda Nunes.

Well, it is now being rumored that the WWE will make an attempt to sign Rousey, once she is done with the UFC. Rousey did make an appearance in WWE at Wrestlemania 31 in California when she had an in-ring segment with the Rock and was across the ring from the Authority. Since then, there have been WWE fans who have been hoping that they would see her back in the square circle. This won’t be the first time someone went from the WWE to the UFC or vice versa. The two notable ones are Brock Lesnar and CM Punk. If this truly does happen, then it would be the first time one of the women UFC fighters came to the WWE.

Now begs the question, what does WWE do with Rousey, if they are able to pull the trigger on this once she is done with the UFC. First, I foresee her having a similar schedule to Brock Lesnar and be very limited and I suspect that it will be up to her as far as when she works. Plus you will figure she will appear at the major pay-per-views like the Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania, Summerslam, and Survivor Series. The next thing that should be interesting to see is who will she go up against.

For starters, I can see her go up against Charlotte, Sasha Banks, Asuka, and Becky Lynch to name a few possible names. If WWE can pull the trigger, then we will probably see Rousey vs. Stephanie McMahon at some point in the future as they teased something between them at Wrestlemania 31.

This should be taken with a grain of salt as it is just being rumored and may not happen.
