One of the most memorable moments to happen at Wrestlemania 31 was when Ronda Rousey came to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s aid against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. The Inquisitr reported on the phenomenal “Wrestlemania Moment,” which might have been a setup for a potential Ronda vs. Stephanie match at Wrestlemania 32. Whatever the plans for creative may be, Ronda’s WWE appearance has received much praise by fellow UFC fighters, especially from women’s strawweight champion, Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
Unfortunately for WWE and MMA fans, UFC denies that Ronda will have any future involvement with the premier sports entertainment organization thus making the aforementioned possibility of a Ronda vs. Stephanie match a dream only. Despite this fact, Ronda wants more of what she experienced at Wrestlemania 31, stating she “needs to find a way” to return to the WWE.
According to Fox Sports, Ronda Rousey admitted her desire to find a way back to the WWE when she made a guest appearance on the “Rowdy” Roddy Piper podcast recently. Ronda — who’s been a lifelong fan of the WWE — said it was a dream come true to work alongside the WWE, but it has left her wanting more.
“I hit the ground running. The first I ever wrestled was at Wrestlemania with an attendance record at Levi’s Stadium. I had a problem when I left. There’s no way I can’t not go back in there again. There’s no way. After experiencing that, there’s nothing like it.
“The second I left I was already thinking, ‘How can I possibly go back?’ I didn’t even change [clothes] yet. I hadn’t even gotten out of my outfit yet.”
Nevertheless, Ronda Rousey would choose UFC over WWE because fighting is her true passion. She explains that even though she loves the WWE, she would choose the Octagon because of the uncertainty there is when going into a fight.
“It’s the uncertainty of the fight. I don’t know exactly what’s going to happen. I don’t know if I’m going to get really hurt. I don’t know what they’re going to come out with. My mind is still running over a million things that could possibly happen, whereas when I know exactly what’s going to go down, roughly, because it didn’t go down exactly as I thought. Give or take. I’m like, ‘OK, this is the way it’s going to be and if it’s going to be this way, I’m not going to screw it up.’”
However, fans don’t need to worry if they’ll ever see Ronda Rousey in the squared circle ever again. WWE will most likely work with UFC to have “The Rowdy One” come back for special occasions such as a match against Stephanie McMahon at Wrestlemania 32. But for now, Ronda is busy preparing for her fight against “The Pitbull,” Bethe Correia at UFC 190.
“I need to find a way [to go back to WWE] but I have a lot of stuff going on. I’m fighting Aug. 1. First of all, the kind of beating Bethe is going to get in Brazil is nothing compared to anything anyone can make up in the meantime.”
