Fans in Las Vegas will get to see her sign a contract as a Raw Superstar at Elimination Chamber while fans all around the world can watch it on the WWE Network. But signing a piece of paper for Rowdy Ronda might only be the tip of the iceberg for her as she continues her journey in pro wrestling.
Rowdy Ronda been training for a long time and remained focused on her goal to become a WWE Superstar. Now it looks like that day is finally upon us for Ronda Rousey to start an actual program in WWE and it could all kick off at Elimination Chamber.
