Ronda Rousey may finally be headed to WWE. It has long been expected that the former UFC women's bantamweight champion would make the move to professional wrestling after her career in the octagon was over. Now it looks like it's happening.

USA Today is reporting Rousey is in the midst of finalizing a deal with WWE. Rousey has made several appearances at WWE events over the years, but has never competed before. She has even trained with WWE stars in the past.


No details are yet available on what the 30-year-old's role would be. It is not known if she'd become a full-time member of the WWE roster or a part-timer who makes spot appearances. Her most effective role might be similar to that of Brock Lesnar who appears several times a year in big matches.


Rousey hasn't competed in mixed martial arts since being knocked out by Amanda Nunes in 48 seconds at UFC 207. That fight took place on December 30, 2016 and came more than a year after Rousey suffered her first career defeat, a knockout loss to Holly Holm in November of 2015. Virtually no one believes Rousey will ever fight in the octagon again and UFC president Dana White has even said he doesn't want to see her make a comeback

As soon as she lost her "comeback" fight, I knew this was going to happen. She is tailor-made for WWE.

Depends on how she's progressing in her training.  A singles match as early as WM could be ugly.  She might need to be protected more.  I have no idea how she'll make the transition.

Dave Meltzer is reporting that the WWE is planning a match between Ronda Rousey and Asuka.   Got it off facebook so don't know how true it is.

I’ll ask my son when I get home as he seems to be fairly accurate with this stuff. He was certain that Orton’s Mystery tag partner was going to be Zack Ryder. His elementary school has a direct hook up to breaking observer news.

WWE likes to throw as many women in the ring as possible for WM matches. They have also shown that they are happy to throw inexperienced women in the ring there. The obvious match is the Four Horsewomen vs the Four Horsewomen. It wouldn't be too difficult to do if they planned the match correctly.
