The mixed martial arts star has always been rumored to make the move to professional wrestling after her UFC career seemingly ended when she was knocked out by Amanda Nunes inside 48 seconds in December 2016.
After Bazsler's win, Rousey was confronted by Charlotte Flair, clearly teasing a potential battle.
USA Today reports that "two people close" to Rousey asserted that the Olympic bronze medalist is finalising a deal to jump across to Vince McMahon's pro-graps megalith, which would quite obviously carry a hefty price-tag with it given Rousey's star appeal. Following the two losses to Nunes, UFC president Dana White has been vocal about his opposition to Rousey's return. Rapidly. And it's just in time for a Wrestlemania appearance. She brought crashing down an image of invincibility Rousey had crafted en route to a dominant 6-0 start on the UFC circuit that made her one of the biggest stars in sports. "I wouldn't want it to happen", White said.
"I've been out there probably saying if she wants the opportunity I'm happy to give it to her".
"I'm excited to have the conversation with her and see where it goes". "She will get a lot of money and that's great".
No words were spoken, except by Rousey, who told the WWE stars, "Name the time".
There are also rumors that she will join her friends and fellow Four HorsewomenRonda Rousey, Marina Sharif, and Jessamyn Duke to take on the Four Horsewomen of WWE in Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, and Bayley at WrestleMania 34. Rousey has been in a number of TV and movie projects, including The Expendables 3 and Fast 7, plus ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue, Maxim, and Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue, and she has regularly appeared on shows like Ellen and even hosted Saturday Night Live. She was subdued and mostly absent from promotion leading up to the Nunes fight and has largely shunned the spotlight since.
MMA Weekly reported Wednesday that, as production on that film is expected to last until February, Rousey would not be a full-time member of WWE but would participate in some of the company's most high-profile events over the coming year.
