It’s clear that the WWE has big plans for former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.
Although the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion has not come out and confirmed that she is done fighting, it’s likely a chapter in her life that has closed.
It’s due to her devastating loss to current UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes at the UFC 207 pay-per-view event that took place in December of 2016.
If you recall, at WrestleMania 31, Rousey did a segment with The Rock, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in which she got physical with McMahon.
WWE did have plans for Rousey at WrestleMania 32 last year in Dallas, Texas but things didn’t pan out because of Rousey’s hectic schedule.
Just last year she started training at the Santino Brothers Pro Wrestling school in Southern California. This move would be following in the footsteps of fellow four horsewomen Jessamyn Duke, and Shayna Baszler.
For those who might not know, the Santino Brothers Pro Wrestling School is the same school that WWE sent Eva Marie to train at under Brian Kendrick.
It’s also the same school where WWE sent Sonya Deville to train before she came to the Performance Center.
Despite her recent MMA downfall, she is still a name that will draw with people and gather attention with the media. Rousey is a big WWE fan. This leads us to her training at the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
Shifting gears, let’s take a look at her WWE debut as a member of the main roster with the sports entertainment company.
As seen at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Wells Fargo Center on the WWE Network, Asuka won the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble match.
After the match, the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion walked out to the ring and pointed at the WrestleMania 34 sign.
She tried to shake Asuka’s hand but Asuka shoved it away. Rousey shook Stephanie McMahon’s hand at ringside.
Now, she’s part of the main storyline on WWE’s flagship show, Monday Night Raw, as she is slated to team up with Raw General Manager and WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle to take on Triple H and Stephanie McMahon at WrestleMania 34.
It’s time for her big achievement that she will earn later this year. The sports entertainment company has announced Rousey will make her MSG debut when WWE returns to the historical arena, Madison Square Garden, in New York, NY.
That event will take place on Saturday, July 7th.
