Another WWE superstar has sounded off on the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion.
This time it comes from current Raw women’s champion Alexa Bliss, who was recently interviewed by TMZ Sports about Rousey possibly signing with the WWE. Here is what she had to say:
"Please," Bliss said (transcript courtesy of Wrestling Inc). "I'm a fighting champion, I'm not worried about anybody taking my belt. The title is mine."
It’s been reported that Rousey would have a singles match at WrestleMania 34 with the likely opponent being either Stephanie McMahon or Charlotte Flair.
WrestleMania 34 is set to be held on April 8, 2018, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
This event airs on pay-per-view (PPV) and WWE Network and is the most successful and longest-running professional wrestling event in history. Both Raw and SmackDown rosters will be featured on the card.
If you recall, Rousey did a segment with The Rock, Triple H and McMahon at WrestleMania 31 back in 2015 in which she got physical with McMahon.
Flair and Rousey have been teasing a match against each for what seems like forever. Either Rousey facing McMahon or Flair would be a huge match.
The former UFC women’s bantamweight champion has been training at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
Asuka has recently changed her finishing hold from a chicken wing to an armbar on television. To some, this might only look like a small alteration, but since Rousey is known as the “armbar master,” Dave Meltzer noted in a recent issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that it could turn into something more.
According to an article from USA Today, Rousey and WWE are “very close” to terms on reaching a deal.
The site reports that while details are being finished up, the source wanted to remain anonymous because the deal has not been made public as of this writing.
