Stephanie McMahon has once again talked about Ronda Rousey.
TMZ recently caught up with McMahon at an airport and asked her about the rumors of Rousey doing a match in WWE. Here is what McMahon said: “Ronda, the offer still stands, we would love to have you in WWE.”
It’s no secret by now that WWE is planning on having the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion wrestle in the squared circle. It’s well known by now that the latest angle involving Rousey took place Rousey came about after Shayna Baszler’s second-round win in the Mae Young Classic tournament on WWE Network. In the segment, Baszler celebrated with Rousey and MMA teammates Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir.
This led to a heated exchange with WWE stars Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, and Bailey, who were seated in the front row across the aisle for the match. WWE shared this video after the episode had aired of Rousey, Duke, and Shafir praising Baszler.
Dave Meltzer noted in a past issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE is planning to have the Four Horsewomen of MMA face the Four Horsewomen of NXT at the upcoming Survivor Series PPV (pay-per-view) event in November in Houston, Texas at the Toyota Center.
Then, Rousey would then have a singles match at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans, Louisiana at Mercedes-Benz Superdome next year with the likely opponent being either Stephanie McMahon or Charlotte Flair.
By looking back at history, at WrestleMania 31, Rousey did a segment with The Rock, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon 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. Rousey has been training for her professional wrestling career over the last few months.
McMahon also said that “anything is possible” when it comes to possibly being Rousey's opponent. She brought up how she could get her revenge from Wrestlemania 31. You can watch the video here:
For a quote from Rousey, when asked what's next for her during an interview with ESPN last month, Rousey preferred to keep the spotlight on her friend by saying, "I don't want to come to Shayna's event on Shayna's night and sit here talk about myself," she said. "I want to keep tonight all about her. Go Shayna Baszler!"
