Ronda Rousey Rumors: UFC Star 'Finalizing Details' to Sign WWE Contract

Share

This latest move - if finalized - could see Rousey make several appearances in WWE programming in 2018 with the possibility that she could always extend or expand that deal in the future. The site reports that while details are being finished up, the source wanted to remain anonymous because the deal has not been made public as of this writing.

There are also rumors that she will join her friends and fellow Four Horsewomen Ronda Rousey, Marina Sharif, and Jessamyn Duke to take on the Four Horsewomen of WWE in Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, and Bayley at WrestleMania 34.

However, a stunning loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November 2015 punctured her aura of invincibility, and after taking more than a year to recover and attend to a burgeoning acting career, Rousey was knocked out in just 48 seconds by Amanda Nunes at UFC 207. During the event, Rousey was caught in a stare down with leading women's wrestler Charlotte Flair, in which Rousey issued a challenge: "You name the time, you name the place". "I wouldn't want it to happen". She's got enough money and all that stuff.

"I'm excited to have the conversation with her and see where it goes". WWE's scripted programming and audience makeup is much different than the UFC's.

Ronda Rousey's days in the octagon appear to be numbered.

The 30-year-old has been working out at WWE's High Performance Center in Orlando, Fla. She has appeared in several movies such as "Entourage", "Furious 7" and "The Expendables 3". WrestleMania season is right around the corner, and there's no question WWE would want to have Rousey's debut coincide with one of the company's biggest shows of the year. Now, it's quite possible that didn't directly factor in Rousey much, as this was about lower-tier broadcast fights rather than the better PPV fights she would have likely been in, but there was still maybe the idea of her showing up on some broadcast properties from time to time. Once the UFC added women's fighting the whole thing became more professional.

So now the waiting game continues, but weeks/months/years of a Rousey move to pro wrestling seems to be coming true.
