Ronda Rousey is a huge name in MMA. Her record might not be perfect, but she’s still one of the most recognizable athletes on the globe. Her endorsement deals along with her impressive highlight reel are sure to keep her in the public eye for years to come.
But what if Ronda Rousey ended up in WWE? We’re sure Triple H and Stephanie would just love that! But could it ever happen? Bryan Alvarez was recently posed that same question on an episode of Wrestling Observer Live and he had a lot to say on the matter.
“So Ronda Rousey was in fact in the front row at the Mae Young Classic” Alvarez said. “Shayna Baszler, one of the 4 Horsewomen is in the tournament and they had Ronda there for the first night — I believe she was there for the second night. I know that they’ve apparently worked something out where she’s going to be there more often for these, I don’t know that that means.”
Ronda’s WrestleMania 31 spot with The Rock ended with her putting hands on Stephanie McMahon. It was an outstanding moment in Levi’s Stadium and gave a great moment for Stephanie’s future WWE Hall Of Fame highlight reel. But for fans who were hoping Ronda Rousey and WWE might come together on a more full-time basis, you can probably keep dreaming for now. Alvarez went on to paint a picture of what it would take to snag Ronda for even one official WWE encounter.
“I don’t think they’re going to sign her to like an active participant in the Women’s Division. Could they get Ronda Rousey for one match? Sure! They offer her enough money, UFC okays it, and she’s up with it then yeah, absolutely. I’m sure they’d love it. I’m not sure it’s gonna happen though.”
