While this surprise appearance made headlines, how it was handled, and how it will be handled is a subject for debate.
Rousey adopted the "Rowdy" nickname from WWE Hall of Famer "Rowdy" Roddy Piper. The endorsement from the WWE legend was the start of a meteoric rise for the 2008 bronze medalist.
She began her career in judo, winning a bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
Ronda Rousey became a full-time employee of the WWE. Rousey put women's MMA on the map by becoming the Ultimate Fighting Championship's first belt holder in its bantamweight division and storming to a series of arm bar victories.
Rousey notably stood side-by-side with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as they fought off the villainous Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in a segment at WrestleMania in 2015. The veteran boxing champion artfully dodged the wild hooks and set up for the kick that changed the course of MMA. She then lost to Amanda Nunes in 2016, before stepping away from the competition.
The comeback that was a major promotional tool for the UFC wasn't a return to the sport, but rather an exit. It's been nearly three years since I've heard that WWE fan reaction and to be honest with you, a lot of people say it's luck and a lot of people say it's awesome to hear that but I'll tell you, I'm truly blessed.
At that time, Rousey was an undefeated UFC champion, darling of the United States chat show and starting to establish herself as a star on the small and silver screens. She won each of her three amateur MMA fights in less than a minute.

How nice was it to watch the WWE finally give the fans what they want at the Royal Rumble? He was able to eliminate Adam Cole from the Rumble and was part of the last six superstars present in the Rumble alongside Randy Orton, John Cena, Roman Reigns, Finn Balor and the eventual victor, Shinsuke Nakamura. At the same time, WWE's latest attempt at an attention grab overshadowed the entire historic Rumble match. His promos are limited by his English fluency. Maybe she'll bully Asuka. She'll be there, but the real question is what will she be doing?
In that sense, she was the exact opposite of numerous stars who came before. "They've been waiting for a women's revolution".
In his very first Royal Rumble match, Nakamura outlasted the rest of the roster to win a title opportunity at WrestleMania 34, and he wasted no time in challenging Smackdown LIVE champion A.J. Styles to a match.
Jinder Mahal added, "That's awesome that she's signed full-time". Here's what we think WWE should do with her. Just like she dominated the UFC, she's going to dominate pro wrestling.
"She still cannot speak about the losses, and to me - it's hard for me to wrap my head around", he said. Shinsuke Nakamura has won the Royal Rumble and will be facing AJ Styles at "Wrestlemania XXXIV", but Styles still has to deal with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, who seemed to be screwed out of their title shot on Sunday.
How many networks would like to roll out Rousey at the upfronts?

Like him or not, the Jason Jordan character has been one of the better elements of the Raw brand in recent months, thanks to a slow burn to a big heel turn. Along with how the angles are booked, the structure of Rousey matches should be booked carefully as well. She could be as dominant as Lesnar is now. That's why a limited number of matches might be the best formula to maximize the Rousey draw without the risk of hindering her status. She joins Brock Lesnar as both have now made the transition from UFC stars to WWE superstars. What exactly is Rousey planning for this year's Show of Shows?
