Ronda Rousey's Move To WWE Reportedly 'Imminent'

Former UFC champion Ronda Rousey appears close to a deal to join WWE. More

That would be huge for wrestling fans as Rousey would lock horns with the likes of Paige, Asuka, Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair and many more. During the event, Rousey was caught in a stare down with leading women's wrestler Charlotte Flair, in which Rousey issued a challenge: "You name the time, you name the place".

Triple H said the ex-UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion wants the opportunity to work with WWE again two months ago.

Now people close to Rousey have told USA Today and MMA Junkie that she is "finalizing details of her move to WWE".

Speculation ran wild about Rousey's eventual move to WWE after that incident but until now there's been no solid information that she was actually considering a career in professional wrestling.

Rousey, who hasn't had an MMA fight since December 2016, has offered indications that she was interested in the WWE. Name the place", then added, "Oh, not today? Shayna Baszler gave up mixed-martial arts in favour of pro-wrestling, and is now signed to the WWE after finishing second in the company's women-only Mae Young Classic tournament earlier this year.

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day ceremony set for Veterans Memorial Park
The American Legion Auxiliary encourages everyone to do what they can to keep Pearl Harbor a part of our national consciousness. More than 300 Japanese airplanes attacked the naval base near Honolulu, Hawaii, just before 8 a.m. that Sunday.

While it largely had more to do with the evolution of the women's fighting game catching up with its first star, Rousey doesn't seem to stand much to gain from a return to the octagon.

Rousey has always been known as a big fan of pro wrestling, even as she rocketed to fame as a former Olympic bronze medalist in judo and then became a dominant force in MMA.

"She has talked about it and she's been on record saying WWE was probably some of the most fun that she's ever had in her entire career".

That will nearly certainly stand as Rousey's final MMA fight, as even UFC President Dana White has said he doesn't expect her back in the octagon. The value of WWE rights isn't generally about one performer, and there are questions about how Rousey will be received by a wrestling audience, but she certainly would seem to have at least the potential of bringing in some new fans. That will likely include an appearance at WrestleMania 34 in April.
