UFC Legend Ronda Rousey Joins WWE Full

Speculation about Rousey's possible move to professional wrestling started at Wrestlemania in 2015 when The Rock pulled her into the ring to help toss Triple H and his wife Stephanie McMahon out of the ring.

"This is my life now".

Rousey, 14-2, is expected to have her first WWE match at Wrestlemania 34 on April 8. "This is not a smash-and-grab; this is not a publicity stunt", Rousey. Asuka emerged the victor of the contest when she was flanked by existing champions Raw's Alexa Bliss and Smackdown's Charlotte Flair. There had been rumors for a while that Rousey was transitioning into the wrestling world, and even many saying it would happen at the Royal Rumble.

Speaking to wwe.com she said: "Rowdy Roddy Piper's son Colton was kind enough to fly all the way from Vegas and bring me his jacket to wear tonight and I want every single time that I'm out here for people to remember him and what he's accomplished. But I won't enjoy almost as much'". "It's time to take a hint from the universe and go for it". Given the star-power that this match would feature, it would surely be one of the main events should it come to fruition.

The company has put a greater focus on women's wrestling in the past few years.

Ronda Rousey made waves again last night when she showed up at the WWE Royal Rumble.

That doesn't necessarily mean she has completely abandoned mixed martial arts.

"That's what everyone else seems to say", Rousey added. Nevertheless, her much-anticipated arrival in the company provides further evidence that her MMA career is nearly certainly over, adds a dose of star power to the pro-wrestling behemoth and, as Rousey silently made clear after she entered the ring, sets up a major story line heading toward April's WrestleMania 34. She then lost to Amanda Nunes in 2016, before stepping away from the competition.

Rousey also appeared at WWE's Mae Young Classic.

Rousey took the MMA world by storm over the course of four years.

Most times when a superstar signs with WWE, the company owns the licensing rights to that superstar while they are under contract. Her appearance was brief as she stepped into the ring, pointed to the WrestleMania sign, and shook Stephanie McMahon's hand.

"I wouldn't doubt myself doing anything", she concluded when asked if she'd ever return to the UFC.

'It's one thing to show up one night. It's another be a WWE superstar. I'm on the road with all the other girls, all the men and women who are on the road 270 days a year.

Opinion: We're into a new period in WWE at the moment with the Royal Rumble out of the way but now WWE is in a bit of a weird spot.

Nikki hadn't competed since WrestleMania, but she was the final person eliminated after entering at No. 27. "This is something she has always wanted to do", UFC president Dana White said in a text to ESPN's Brett Okamoto.
