Big Update On Ronda Rousey's WWE Future

Ronday Rousey looks set to join WWE

Ronda Rousey's UFC career might, for all intents and purposes, by effectively over thanks to a 48-second rinsing from Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 back in December of 2016, but her career inside a ring is apparently far from over. Rousey was at a WWE show in September and watched her close friend Shayna Baszler, a former mixed martial artist now making waves with the WWE. Rousey and her friends and MMA training partners Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir were confronted by a trio of leading WWE performers in Charlotte Flair, Bayley and Becky Lynch.

Rousey has made appearances at WrestleMania 31 (with The Rock), the Mae Young Classic, and in November, at an NXT live event to meet with fans.

Reports from USA Today on Wednesday came out that stated that Rousey is the final stages of completing a deal with the WWE, so the potential first chapter of this possible eight-women encounter is on the horizon.

"I've been out there probably saying if she wants the opportunity I'm happy to give it to her".

If Rousey finalizes her deal with WWE in the near future, it would make sense for a fight between her and Flair to take place at Wrestlemania 34 in New Orleans on April 8. "I wouldn't want it to happen", White said.

Rogers adds that Rousey has been working out at the WWE's High Performance Center in Orlando, Fla.

Giants GM says parameters of Stanton trade have been reached
However due to Stanton's full no trade clause, he has the final say in whether or not the deals will be finalized. He called the pitcher and left-handed hitter an "impressive young man" who will be a two-way player.

"I'm excited to have the conversation with her and see where it goes". I care about her, and she's got enough money.

It's also worth pondering if Rousey's departure from the UFC is perhaps part of the reason they haven't been able to get the offers they were looking for. By the time Rousey lost to Nunes she was coming up against an athlete who devoted her entire existence to excelling at MMA, and it showed.

Despite Rousey losing her last two UFC fights, she is still one of the most iconic fighters in the world and would be a big draw for WWE.

Along with television hosting jobs and movie role, the WWE move seems to be a better fit for Rousey at this time in her life.

Whether that clash eventuates at WrestleMania, or if Rousey competes in a different one-on-one matchup remains to be seen.
