The WWE has acquired another mega-star to their roster, and it's none other than former UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.
During her heyday in the UFC Rousey established herself as a major mainstream name, even earning herself roles in major Hollywood films. Since suffering her first back-to-back losses inside the Octagon Rousey has essentially halted her fighting career.
She recently signed a full-time deal with WWE and will make the transition into becoming a professional wrestler. Rousey is a longtime WWE fan and has draw inspiration from Hall Of Famer "Rowdy" Roddy Piper.
Much has been made about Rousey's signing to WWE and various Superstars have offered up their thoughts on the signing. One of the most recent Superstars to do so was former World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry.
Henry joined Busted Open Radio and discussed WWE signing Rousey and how he thinks she should approach the current locker room. Here's what he had to say (quotes via EWrestlingNews):
“I’m hopeful that Ronda will make the necessary moves to go in and integrate into the locker room peacefully.
"It’s going to be good for everybody to have her on a card, and they have to find a common ground. You cannot have a lot of animosities built up and start to turn the fans against the people working with you.
"I think that’s poor business. I think it they all have to come to an agreement.
"It might be one of those locker room moments where you go ‘hey guys, can I talk to you all for a second?’ and some people might go ‘go throw yourself off a bridge’ and won’t come.
"For the most part, I think you can pull together an audience to get your point across.
“I think she should try to babyface everyone. She should go in there, be nice and try to be respectful until someone makes her not nice.
"At least give everybody the benefit of the doubt and say ‘hey, I don’t know everything, and I’m gonna be looking on everybody to teach me some stuff.
"Please, I want to be a major player, and I want to help everybody along, but I need to be helped in order for that to happen.’”
