UFC Women's Bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey could be set for a sensational match at next year's WrestleMania, according to reports today.

The MMA and movie star made her debut inside a WWE ring at this weekend's WrestleMania 31 in San Francisco and the WWE are looking to capitalise on the buzz she generated.

Big entrance

Rousey jumped over the barricade and stepped into the ring to help out The Rock, who had just been slapped by Stephanie McMahon.

She then threw Triple H out of the ring and grabbed Stephanie by the arm, posturing to the crowd about a possible armbar.

However, Stephanie managed to get out of the ring but the reaction to the spot has proven nothing but positive and the WWE are already planning a match featuring Rousey say 411mania.com.

A dream come true for Rousey

Rousey's part in WrestleMania was a dream come true for her as she loves the WWE and even refers to her MMA teammates as the 'Four Horsewomen', a direct take from Ric Flair's old stable in the 80's and 90's.

Her excitement at the prospect of actually being on a match at next year's event will no doubt see her in extensive talks with UFC President Dana White.

White had reportedly signed off on the WrestleMania 31 segment a while ago, but he would be rightly hesitant to give the WWE one of his biggest assets for the night.

Although they did mention on commentary as to who Rousey is and that she's a UFC wrestler, the WWE have previously been very sceptical of the product.

A one-sided working relationship?

Former WWE star, now UFC fighter, Phil 'CM Punk' Brooks spoke of how the WWE denied him the privilege of walking out UFC star Chael Sonnen during his time with the company, despite Punk being the WWE Champion and the free promotion.

With the return of Brock Lesnar and the hyping of his UFC achievements as well, it seems as if the WWE is ok with using the UFC buzz but not the other way around.

This may make it more difficult to make a match for Rousey, and instead, she may be used as a manager of sorts for The Rock, who is reportedly set to face Triple H at the event.

Capturing a star like Rousey and having her on the Wrestlemania 32 card would be a huge get, especially as the card will take place from the AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas, where the WWE hopes to smash their previous attendance record.

No stone will be left unturned and there'll be no star too big for the WWE to try and utilise, so expect more reports in the coming months about big names linked to the event.
