Ronda Rousey's Move To WWE Reportedly 'Imminent'

Ronda Rousey at Wrestlemania 31

Following her loss to current champion Amanda Nunes, Rousey has shied away from the sport of mixed martial arts and seems to be focused on other endeavors.

This isn't really Rousey leaving the UFC for WWE, as many have figured her MMA career was over since that 48-second loss last December 31.

Reports from USA Today on Wednesday came out that stated that Rousey is the final stages of completing a deal with the WWE, so the potential first chapter of this possible eight-women encounter is on the horizon.

That will nearly certainly stand as Rousey's final MMA fight, as even UFC President Dana White has said he doesn't expect her back in the octagon.

There are also rumors that she will join her friends and fellow Four Horsewomen Ronda Rousey, Marina Sharif, and Jessamyn Duke to take on the Four Horsewomen of WWE in Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, and Bayley at WrestleMania 34. Rapidly. And it's just in time for a Wrestlemania appearance.

It's been speculated for a while but reports are now swirling that Rousey is getting close to finalising a deal with the WWE, which would see the 30-year-old make a long-awaited jump across to the wild world of professional wrestling. "I wouldn't want it to happen", White said. I care about her.

"She's achieved everything she's wanted to do, she's made a [expletive]-load of money, and now she actually wants to have a life", White told reporters at a press conference.

WWE essentially confirmed a deal with Rousey was in the works when it posted a video of the former UFC star in a stare down with wrestler Charlotte Flair back in September. Rousey has been in a number of TV and movie projects, including The Expendables 3 and Fast 7, plus ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue, Maxim, and Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue, and she has regularly appeared on shows like Ellen and even hosted Saturday Night Live.

Rousey, who hasn't had an MMA fight since December 2016, has offered indications that she was interested in the WWE.

Despite Rousey losing her last two UFC fights, she is still one of the most iconic fighters in the world and would be a big draw for WWE.
