Big Update On Ronda Rousey's WWE Future

Big Update On Ronda Rousey's WWE Future

The mixed martial arts star has always been rumored to make the move to professional wrestling after her UFC career seemingly ended when she was knocked out by Amanda Nunes inside 48 seconds in December 2016.

Mixed martial arts star Ronda Rousey may be nearing an agreement to finalize her long-awaited move to WWE, USA Today's Martin Rogers reported Wednesday.

However, the evidence of Rousey's career change has been mounting for a while. Although not yet officially announced by WWE, it appears as if Rousey will be making her way to the squared circle in the near future.

According to USA Today, Rousey and WWE are close to a deal. She's got enough money. Rousey herself has appeared with The Rock at WrestleMania 31.

Rousey has been busy of late, promoting a soon-to-be-released and self-titled website.

The 30-year-old has been working out at WWE's High Performance Center in Orlando, Fla.

The person with the greatest business interest in seeing Rousey return to fighting essentially ruled it out recently.


A transition to professional wrestling wouldn't be surprising for Rousey.

"I wouldn't want to see it", White said last week.

Triple H said the ex-UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion wants the opportunity to work with WWE again two months ago. She has got money ... and all that stuff.

"I'm excited to have the conversation with her and see where it goes".

"She is looking for the opportunity so it seems like the flawless matchup".

Looking back she may reflect that those extra-curricular activities caught up with her, but so too did the rest of the women's field. And she certainly was one of the most mainstream UFC stars. She was subdued and mostly absent from promotion leading up to the Nunes fight and has largely shunned the spotlight since. A recently released biographical film about her, Through My Father's Eyes, won first place at Britain's Crystal Palace International Film Festival, but largely focused on the earlier years of her career. Regardless, any potential deal with Rousey is likely to be more along the lines of the one afforded to Brock Lesnar; one in which she is used sparingly as an attraction performer, rather than a full-time in-ring competitor.
