This past Sunday’s WrestleMania had its share of memorable moments for sure, and one of them saw the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion, Ronda Rousey, standing alongside The Rock as they took out Triple H and Stephanie McMahon together. After Rousey’s appearance, WWE fans began speculating that Rousey would be returning at some point to have a match with Stephanie McMahon, and last night, Ronda Rousey added to the speculation after she sent out a message to the WWE fans via Twitter to let them know that she’s just getting started.
The assumption is that Rousey will take on Stephanie McMahon in a one-on-one match at next year’s WrestleMania, but there has been an idea of a mixed tag-team match that has been thrown around that would involve Rousey teaming with The Rock to take on Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.
WWE has been courting Rousey for quite some time now, and with Rousey being in the crowd at this past Sunday’s WrestleMania, WWE felt that it was the perfect time to do something with her. It also seems like UFC President Dana White is okay with Rousey doing something with WWE, as he tweeted out a photo of himself enjoying her WrestleMania appearance on Sunday night.
In the past, the UFC President has been against his fighters doing pro wrestling while they’re under contract to the UFC. Two examples of that are Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle. Back in 2010, Vince McMahon attempted to get Lesnar back in the squared-circle to take on The Undertaker at WrestleMania 27, but White nixed it. As for the Angle example, well, Angle was never under contract with the UFC, but Dana White did tell Angle that if he was going to fight, he needed to quit wrestling because “you’re either real or fake.” Angle chose to stick with pro wrestling, of course.
Rousey may be the biggest star in the UFC right now, and with a lack of quality contenders in the UFC’s Women’s Bantamweight division, White may not be so opposed to Rousey doing a match with WWE.
As of right now, Rousey is scheduled to take on Bethe Correia on August 1 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. If Rousey gets past Correia, there’s the possibility the much anticipated Rousey vs. “Cyborg” fight happening next if Cyborg is able to make it down to 135 pounds.
