Big Update On Ronda Rousey's WWE Future

Big Update On Ronda Rousey's WWE Future

The former UFC bantamweight champion is finalizing a move to professional wrestling, USA Today reported Wednesday, citing two people close to Rousey. 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. The UFC's first female fighter, Rousey began her MMA career 12-0, usually dispatching her foes shortly into the first round, and won acclaim for her skills, looks and charisma. UFC President Dana White cast major doubt on Rousey's future in the company last month, when he told reporters he "wouldn't want to see" her fight in the UFC again. In a video posted to her Twitter account on December 1st previewing Rousey's new website, footage was shown of Rousey training at the WWE Performance Center.

Rousey's ties to the WWE are numerous and speculation has been mounting that her apparently imminent jump to the 'E will lead to a marquee matchup at the upcoming WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans next April.

"I wouldn't want to see it". She's got enough money and all of that stuff. It seems a flawless landing spot. By the time Rousey lost to Nunes she was coming up against an athlete who devoted her entire existence to excelling at MMA, and it showed.

"Ronda changed the game for all of us", recently deposed women's strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk said.

The level of intrigue with Rousey has actually increased since she started losing. 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.

Which means she leaves just as she arrived - uniquely.
