Its been a few months now since we posted anything with Ronda Rousey‘s name in it. Well, the former MMA star is back in the news, as the WWE rumors are starting to heat up again. According to FightFul.com, there’s mutual interest between Ronda and the WWE to join forces and the former UFC champion has reportedly started taking the first steps to learn her way inside a ring.
Fightful.com was told Tuesday morning that Ronda Rousey has expressed interest in a pro wrestling run, and has went as far as to learn some of the basics from a WWE Superstar.
An employee backstage in WWE told us that Rousey spoke to Triple H to set up her appearance with fellow Four Horsewomen members at the Mae Young Classic. According to sources, WWE had referred Rousey and company to current superstar Brian Kendrick for training purposes in Southern California. You may remember that WWE had referred recently released Eva Marie to Kendrick as well.
There was also buzz backstage at the tournament — mainly among WWE employees and contractors — that Rousey’s training would start soon. She’s taken some basic bumps among other things thus far.
These latest rumors come one week afterHall of Fame announcer Jim Ross, who is currently back working for the WWE, said that he believes Rousey entering the world of professional wrestling is “inevitable” during an interview with TMZ.
It’s just a matter of time before Ronda Rousey officially signs with Vince McMahon — so says WWE legend, Jim Ross, who says it’s a “match made in heaven.”
“Oh, she’s gonna be a big star,” the WWE Hall of Famer told us at LAX … “It’s inevitable. I see her in a WrestleMania someday.”
While Ronda probably doesn’t need the WWE to continue to make money it does seem like the perfect fit for her if she wants to continue to perform on a public stage without getting punched in the face.
