It looks like the WWE and Ronda Rousey have finally agreed to a deal that will bring the former UFC women's bantamweight champion to the world of professional wrestling.
The former UFC star was one of the most dominant names in mixed martial arts (MMA) for several years as she went undefeated inside the cage. After dominating the female 135-pound division for so long, however, she met her match against Holly Holm back in November of 2015.
Holm defeated Rousey for the first time in her fighting career via second round knockout with a head-kick to the neck. After a year Rousey returned to the Octagon only to suffer another knockout loss, this time to Amanda Nunes just 48 seconds into the first round.
After the fight Rousey has yet to make an official announcement on her future as a fighter, however, it's expected that we've seen the last of her inside the Octagon.
Now Rousey seems primed for a career in professional wrestling, and has been rumored to be in negotiations with WWE for some time now.
WWE teased a partnership with Rousey at the Mae Young Classic when she was confronted by The Four Horsewomen of wrestling.
It was also rumored that she has been training for her in-ring debut with former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Brian Kendrick.
Last week TMZ caught Triple H, Rousey, and her agent having dinner at a top of the line LA restaurant, possibly discussing business.
It seems that business negotiation has concluded, as a report from PWStream claims a deal between Rousey and the WWE has been completed.
PWStream notes that it's unlikely we see Rousey at the Royal Rumble, unless they're desperate for mainstream attention, but she'll likely be at WrestleMania 34:
It should be interesting to see who WWE pairs Rousey up with for her in-ring debut with the company at WrestleMania.
What are your thoughts on Rousey reportedly agreeing to a deal with WWE as we approach WrestleMania? Do you think that we could possibly see the former UFC women's bantamweight champion in the Women's Royal Rumble? Or will we not see her in a WWE ring until "The Show Of Shows?"
