Ronda Rousey 'Finalizing' A Signing With WWE

Adjust Comment Print

By all accounts, Rousey's move to WWE wouldn't necessarily be full time because she's now in production on her next film role in the movie "Mile 22" where she will star alongside Mark Wahlberg, John Malkovich and "Walking Dead" star Lauren Cohan. And a match against the WWE's version of the Four Horsewomen - Charlotte Flair, Bayley, Sasha Banks, and Becky Lynch - has been strongly teased.

According to USA Today, Ronda Rousey is finalizing details that will bring the former UFC Champion into the world of WWE.

Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for further information regarding Baszler's debut with NXT, as well as any breaking news regarding Ronda Rousey's status with the WWE as well.

Rousey, who hasn't had an MMA fight since December 2016, has offered indications that she was interested in the WWE. "I'll be waiting to hear from you". Shayna Baszler gave up mixed-martial arts in favour of pro-wrestling, and is now signed to the WWE after finishing second in the company's women-only Mae Young Classic tournament earlier this year.

Duke and Shafir have reportedly also been training to cross over into pro wrestling.

Whether that clash eventuates at WrestleMania, or if Rousey competes in a different one-on-one matchup remains to be seen.

The MMA legend's UFC career effectively ended past year after losing to Amanda Nunes in just 48 seconds.

While Rousey hasn't officially retired from MMA, UFC president Dana White squashed any hope of a potential comeback when he publicly admitted last week he hopes Rousey never fights again.

"She has talked about it and she's been on record saying WWE was probably some of the most fun that she's ever had in her entire career".

Rogers adds that Rousey has been working out at the WWE's High Performance Center in Orlando, Fla.

Production on "Mile 22" is expected to run until at least February with filming taking place in Atlanta.

Speculation has been running wild over a possible Wrestlemania appearance next year at New Orleans for a long time now and the 30-year-old fuelled the rumours last September.
