Continuing to add fuel to the fire created by rumors that UFC star Ronda Rousey could consider a move to the world of professional wrestling in the near future, WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon said the following in an interview with USA Today, when asked about the potential of Rousey signing with WWE.
“Our fans love Ronda. Ronda has this cross platform appeal in terms of all forms of entertainment. We would welcome her with open arms. She is the total package.”
“Muhammad Ali credited pro wrestling for where he got his trash talking skills and persona. I would like to think there is a bit of ‘Rowdy’ and wrestling history in Ronda and the way she carries herself, but she is definitely her own individual brand.”
Obviously, WWE would be foolish not to want someone like Rousey bringing their star power to the promotion, but with Rousey’s next fight, against Amanda Nunes for the UFC Bantamweight Title, scheduled for December 30th, we’ll still have to wait and see if Rousey appearing for WWE in any capacity becomes a reality.
