Rousey's WWE deal will get ex-UFC star again in shiny highlight

Rousey's WWE deal will get ex-UFC star again in shiny highlight”

The other wrestlers in the ring - Asuka and WWE women's champions Alexa Bliss and Charlotte Flair - all looked stunned, the crowd looked thrilled and Rousey basked in it all.

Following her Royal Rumble appearance last night, there is already speculation that Rousey will be involved in a mixed tag-team match against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon at WrestleMania 34.

"Rowdy" said she would not be attending the pro wrestling event due to her role in the film "Mile 22" which was being filmed in Columbia. Her decision to join WWE comes after losing in a MMA match against Amanda Nunes a year ago.

Rousey also discussed the welcome she received from WWE fans, saying she was completely overwhelmed and at a loss for words after getting the biggest pop of the night. According to a separate report from ESPN, Rousey has signed a full-time contract to join WWE.

Shinsuke Nakamura overcame the best in the WWE and tossed Roman Reigns over the ropes cleanly to grab his first Royal Rumble win.

"This is my life now", she said.

While very real injuries still occur on the scripted shows, Rousey can have more control of her physical activity in a choreographed environment.

White is glad to see Rousey following her dream, telling ESPN's Brett Okamoto: "I'm happy for her". She became the UFC's first female champion in 2012 and made six defenses of the women's bantamweight belt, all inside the distance and all but one inside the first round.

Rousey surprised her audience when she came out wearing a leather jacket with a "Hot Rod" t-shirt in the same font as WWE legend "Rowdy" Roddy Piper's. While she has still been part of the UFC roster, she hasn't had any fights since losing to Amanda Nunes in 2016.

Rousey propelled women's MMA in popularity the way Tiger Woods similarly in golf in terms of marketability at the peak of their careers. She had a memorable WrestleMania appearance back in 2015. Rousey has since appeared in the stands at events for WWE's developmental system, NXT.

MMA fighter Ronda Rousey appears on the red carpet of the WWE Mae Young Classic on September 12, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It's now unclear what Rousey's first full match will entail.
