Over the last few months, there has been a ton of speculation regarding the future of Ronda Rousey. After back to back losses, Rousey’s future in MMA is uncertain at best. While nothing has been announced officially, it is widely thought that Rousey will retire from UFC in the near future. Rousey burst on the seen s UFC’s first bantamweight champion, starting her career 12-0. UFC President, Dana White, has stated that he didn’t believe women’s MMA could draw money until Rousey came along. She has generated millions of dollars in pay per view buys and basically created a women’s division on her own. There is wide speculation about what the future of “Rowdy Ronda,” rather it be acting or a wide number of other options, Rousey will have no shortage of opportunities to cash-in. One of the most obvious choices for Ronda would be making the jump to pro wrestling and the WWE.
Rousey would be a perfect fit for the WWE roster, as WWE has up the athleticism in it’s women’s division over the last two years. Recently, the women of WWE have been in the main event of Monday Night Raw, competed in their first ever, “Hell In A Cell,” and have excelled in several “Iron Man” match, all of which have been very well received by fans. The addition of Rousey would add even more star power to a growing roster of talent, and possibly open WWE to a wider audience. WWE has proven over the years that they know how to build a character, and with Rousey being one of the most legitimate athletes, male or female, it seems like a match made in sports entertainment heaven. Rousey’s Wrestlemaina appearance two years ago already drew speculation that she might trade the octagon for the square circle.
Obviously, Rousey has to want to be a part of WWE and WWE has to make the choice to sign her. If the opportunity presents itself, WWE should jump on the chance to bring a bad ass like Rousey into the fold. It’s just two easy to see Ronda Rousey as a Brock Lesner type monster that can draw anytime she steps through the ropes. $$$$ sings should be going off in Vince McMahon’s head. Interestingly, we haven’t heard a word from Rousey’s camp since her last loss to Amanda Nunes, Pure speculation of course, but we would be surprised to see Rowdy Ronda debut at Wrestlemania 33, on April 2nd.
