Ronda Rousey reportedly close to signing with WWE

Ronda Rousey reportedly close to signing with WWE

She had already appeared at WrestleMania in the past in an appearance with "The Rock", getting one over on Stephanie McMahon in the process (this, of course, is a rarity). She has not been training since her loss to Nunes and recently announced on her Facebook page that she has her sights set on an upcoming film in which she is starring in alongside Mark Walhberg.

Rousey's ties to the WWE are numerous and speculation has been mounting that her apparently imminent jump to the 'E will lead to a marquee matchup at the upcoming WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans next April. And a match against the WWE's version of the Four Horsewomen - Charlotte Flair, Bayley, Sasha Banks, and Becky Lynch - has been strongly teased.

WWE essentially confirmed a deal with Rousey was in the works when it posted a video of the former UFC star in a stare down with wrestler Charlotte Flair back in September. But I'd rather see a super fight for Ronda.

The move has been expected for some time now, with Rousey's career in MMA all but officially over.

"I'm excited to have the conversation with her and see where it goes".

Former UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey appears ready to leave mixed martial arts behind her for good. Her next bout wasn't much better. She likely won't be a worker like her friend Shayna Baszler, but someone who comes in during tentpole events for big storylines. Named five years ago Wednesday as the company's first women's champion even before her first fight, she is credited with being singlehandedly responsible for persuading White to introduce women into the company's roster.

But recently Asuka has made a change to her repertoire, as she hasn't been using the Asuka Lock, but instead she's been using an armbar to finisher her opponents.

If Rousey's UFC career is, in fact, over, she'll finish with a 12-2 record with nine submissions and three knockouts.
