The possibility of Ronda Rousey joining WWE continues to grow stronger each day.
Rousey is a former UFC women's bantamweight champion who was widely considered to be the baddest woman on the planet at one point in her career. Rousey racked up an amazing 12 fight win streak in which she finished all but one of her wins in the first round. "The Rowdy One" suffered the first loss of her professional mixed martial arts (MMA) career back in November of 2015 after she was knocked out in the second round via head-kick from Holly Holm.
Following the devastating loss she would take a year off from fighting before returning to the cage to challenge the new queen of 135 pounds - Amanda Nunes. For those who are unfamiliar with "The Lioness'' work, the Brazilian is a vicious knockout artist who completely obliterated women's MMA pioneer Miesha Tate in the first round of their fight to capture the title.
When Nunes and Rousey locked horns inside the Octagon - it wasn't pretty. The Brazilian made quick work of Rousey by knocking her out just 48 seconds into the first round. Although she hasn't officially commented on it yet, it is expected that MMA fans have seen the last of Rousey inside the Octagon.
Recently rumors have been picking up suggesting that Rousey, a longtime professional wrestling fan, could be on her way to the WWE. Rousey has made several appearances on WWE TV in the past and was recently in attendance for the Mae Young Classic to support her friend and tournament finalist Shayna Baszler.
Rousey even did a few promo videos for WWE against The Four Horsewomen (Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, and Bayley). If Rousey does decided to debut in WWE, it's likely that The Four Horsewomen of MMA will take on The Four Horsewomen of WWE.
Amongst other rumors surrounding Rousey's possible WWE debut suggest that she has been training with former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Brian Kendrick. It's also expected that her first one-on-one match could come against either Stephanie McMahon or Charlotte Flair.
Recently Rousey was caught at an airport with her husband, UFC heavyweight Travis Browne, by TMZ and was asked about all these WWE rumors. While Rousey wouldn't confirm anything, saying true fans would want to be surprised, her body language definitely suggested she knows something that the WWE Universe doesn't:
