Wrestling Fans Freak Out Because Ronda Rousey Speaks

Ronda Rousey may or may not be debuting in the WWE in the near future, but that’s not going to stop WWE from acting like she’ll be debuting in the near future.

Rousey has multiple ties to WWE, first appearing ringside at SummerSlam in 2014 and then stepping into the ring at WrestleMania 31 where she tossed around Triple H and Stephanie McMahon during an interview segment. Four Horsewomen stablemate Shayna Baszler is a finalist in the WWE Mae Young Classic while another stablemate, Marina Shafir, is married to WWE superstar Roderick Strong.

In a pre-taped segment at the Mae Young Classic, MMA’s Four Horsewomen (Rousey, Baszler, Jessamyn Duke, Shafir) challenged WWE’s Four Horsewomen (Bayley, Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch).

Rousey says, “you name the time, you name the place” before the six girls just stare at each other and nothing happens.


This segment was shot months ago during the filming of the Mae Young Classic. Rousey’s group and Flair’s group, both of whom ripped off their name from Ric Flair’s stable, both sat ringside and taunted each other with four fingers.

Rousey is reportedly training for an in-ring run, but if and when that happens remains to be seen. Her MMA career is likely over following back-to-back KO defeats, so wrestling remains a strong option. She can work limited dates, win every match because it’s a pre-determined sport, and not get legitimately punched and kicked in the head.

Plus, Vince McMahon loves stars from other sports and would cater to all of her demands. If she could get that Brock Lesnar schedule/money, she’d be a fool to turn it down.

Her wrestling debut will be on hold for at least a month or so as she got married to Travis Browne last weekend.

That month could turn into well over a year if Rousey is as serious about wanting his babies as she was following her loss to Holly Holm.
