Ronda Rousey joins WWE, refuses to say she's retired from MMA

Roman Reigns is Ric Flair's favourite

Rousey first appeared on WWE when Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson pulled her into the ring from the first row during WrestleMania 31 in March 2015.

Asked if she could see herself going back to fight in the UFC, Rousey replied: "I wouldn't doubt myself doing anything". "This is not a smash-and-grab; this is not a publicity stunt", Rousey told ESPN. The typical path into WWE involves hopefuls working their way up through the developmental brand NXT, normally for two or three years, depending on their experience, but it's understandable why Rousey's elevation will be different because of her star power. "There are other things I can do with my time that'll make way more money, but I won't enjoy almost as much". She wore a "Hot Ronda" shirt in the same style as Piper's shirts to the ring Sunday at the Royal Rumble.

There had been talk about the possibility of Rousey becoming a mainstay in pro-wrestling, and now it looks like that's a go.

It's Rousey, putting a hammerlock on current WWE superstar Natayla inside the Santino Bros Wrestling Academy, also located in Southern California.

WWE executive Paul Levesque, better known as wrestling superstar Triple H, had met frequently with Rousey to discuss her interest in a deal. "Straight up disrespectful to Asuka and all the hardworking female WWE Superstars".




"Name the time. Name the place", Rousey told the WWE stars in a tense standoff.

We will find out a lot more about the WWE's plans for Rousey on Monday Night Raw tonight.

Rousey has chose to commit her immediate future to wrestling though, while she refused to rule out a return to the Octagon at some point.

Last night at the Royal Rumble, the Men's Royal Rumble match had several surprise entrants including Adam Cole and NXT Champion Andrade "Cien" Almas from NXT, as well as The Hurricane, but no one received a bigger pop in their return than Rey Mysterio. Ronda posted videos from Colombia on her Instagram and was tagged as being out of the country. It was the second consecutive stoppage loss of Rousey's career after opening 12-0 to help put women's MMA on the map.

Now, Rousey is just looking forward to the next chapter.
