The UFC and WWE have a weird relationship. While they share some crossover stars (Brock Lesnar, CM Punk), they are effectively competitors in one of the most sought after demographics — young men. In the fight for pay-per-dollars and ticket sales from males aged 18-35, the two companies are fierce competitors.
So it should come as no surprise that UFC president Dana White has stifled any rumours of Ronda Rousey, one of the UFC’s most marketable super stars, making any further appearances in a wrestling ring.
“What she did on WrestleMania was awesome, it was awesome. It came off great. I loved it,” White told John Pollock of the Fight Network.
“She’s a ‘one and done.’ One and done.”
Rousey appeared at Wrestlemania XXXI with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, mostly to promote the film Furious 7, which they both have roles in. White did give Rousey permission to appear at the WWE’s flagship annual event, but it doesn’t look like she will be back anytime soon.
Rousey is actually a huge wrestling fan, so she may not be happy with her boss’ decision. If a day ever comes that she is no longer terrorizing opponents in the octagon, we would sure love to see her kick some ass in the squared circle.
