Despite her recent defeats, Rousey will go down in history as one of the greatest MMA fighters of all-time. Her bouts were truly something to behold, she'd walk in, hit an arm-bar, and walk out still as the reigning champion. With each and every win, her momentum would continue to rise and she eventually became a marketing machine.
Despite the defeats and depression, Ronda is still booked to a tee with photo-shoots, films and television. Though, it appears the WWE is next on her list as the gossip mill indicates she's started her training to become a professional wrestler working alongside Brian Kendrick. Get ready folks, cause it’s about to go down!
In this article, we take a different route looking at another side of the former UFC Champion, the edgier side. This article features steamy pics of Ronda with the likes of SI and ESPN. We even have some candid pics Vince likely doesn't want you to see. With a PG WWE product, such photos simply would not fly in the company. Enjoy the article folks and like always, be sure to share it with a friend. So without further ado, here are 15 steamy Ronda Rousey pictures Vince McMahon's PG WWE would not approve.
15 Future WWE Attire?
So with the speculation of Ronda stepping foot in a WWE ring increasing by the day, fans are now looking forward to her debut. Many questions have been asked and one of them is a legit one, what will Ronda wear for her WWE debut?
Some fans would hope she dawns something similar to the picture above, which in truth, looks like something the great HBK wore at one point in time during an entrance. However of course, it's a PG show and we shouldn't expect anything of the sort. In truth, Ronda will likely rock an outfit similar to her UFC bouts. The WWE loves the realism of MMA athletes and loves to showcase that in the ring, just look Brock and his attire. Unfortunately, we'll have to keep dreaming about her SI attire above making a WWE debut at any point.
14 Sports Illustrated Body Paint
MMA fans and just people in general likely died a little inside at the sight of this spread as Ronda took part in one of the steamiest SI shoots you'll ever see. Rousey rocked a stunning one-piece but there was a catch, the one-piece was legitimately painted on. So um yea, you can cross that off the list of possible future WWE attires whether you like it or not.
It wasn’t the first time Ronda took part in such an edgy shoot, despite the fact that she ripped nude shoots featuring athletes, she'd end up taking part in one herself back in 2012 with the ESPN Body Issue. The likes of Miesha Tate were very critical about this ripping Rousey for her past comments. Rousey would take things a step further with this stunning shoot back in February of 2016 taking part in the SI Body Paint Swimsuit Issue. Dawning the cover, you can imagine the magazine sold a couple of copies worldwide.
13 Boxing Gloves & Puppies
So there's two things Vince would not approve of from such a picture, for one, Ronda's barring it all with her "puppies" completely exposed. Second, she's got a pair of Buffalo inspired boxing gloves covering up her chest area, which is another aspect that Vince likely doesn’t approve of. Instead, McMahon would rather approve two boxes of Booty O's covering up the goods (while rocking a John Cena shirt that touches her knees). Speaking of booty, we've some "Not So PG" booty pics a plenty in this article!
This steamy throwback shot was taken in 2015. The clothing company Buffalo was yet another one of Ronda's various sponsors. Say what you must about her recent MMA career but in truth, she's still a marketing machine no matter what she does in the octagon. Vince and the WWE will hope for similar results once she officially steps foot in the squared circle.
12 Steamy Denim Shoot
Rousey has taken part in countless shoots in the past, not only that, she's also appearing on our screens whether it be on the television tube or, on the big screen via film. She's once again looking to add to that list with a WWE debut sooner than later at this point. The rumor mill is starting to intensify with gossip indicating she's not only started to train, but also, likely to make a debut in some capacity during the November PPV, Survivor Series. Like Brock, the plans are to make Ronda an attraction and a performer that rarely fights. We'll take that trade off that's for darn sure.
The WWE looks forward to the "Not So PG" butt kicking she'll bring to the ring, however, the attire you see above that appears to be Buffalo inspired (the clothing company features jean items as their main selling point) needs to be kept in the past.
11 Wardrobe Malfunction
With the new (well relatively new) PG rating put in place, the WWE has cracked down on several aspects of the show. One of which is of course nudity. Whether the nudity is intentional or unintentional, the company does not tolerate it.
We've seen one too many wardrobe malfunctions in the past however. Particularly with women, it's inevitable as a mixture of tight clothing and muscular physiques can usually lead to such a situation taking place. Oh and add in the flips and moves involved in pro wrestling and you're that much more inevitable to such a disaster. Just ask the likes of A.J. Styles....
As for Ronda, she gets into a little malfunction of her own in the picture above. Rocking a lovely short dress, the camera is at the right place at the right time getting an up-skirt shot. The WWE won’t have to worry about something similar taking place cause like, Rousey won't wear such an ensemble.
10 No Bra - No Problem
Again, back in the Attitude Era, such a similar look going braless would be tolerated by the company. Who can forget the likes of Terri Runnels having a certain "Not So PG" asset pop out every time she made her way to the ring? If that wasn't enough, what about the steamy shoot featuring Trish, water and a white t-shirt? Good heavens was that ever something.
Ronda's look in the picture above would be tolerated by the WWE back in the same time period but not today. With so many sponsors and trying to maintain a squeaky clean image, the last thing the WWE needs is little girls searching for WWE pics of a "popping" Ronda Rousey. Now that's not a message the company wants to send, especially to the younger audience.
9 Off-Screen Antics
Outside of the octagon, Ronda loves to have a good time and this "Not So PG" shot is certainly evidence of that. This edgy pic shows Rousey likely had a little too much to drink on the night alongside her gal pals.
With the rise of social media, keeping such antics private is easier said than done. To make matters worse, the WWE is very strict when it comes to the behavior of their talents off-screen. Seeing such a picture of Ronda during her WWE run would not sit well with the company, particularly because of the message she'd be sending to the younger demographic. We've seen numerous Superstars land in hot water because of their reckless personal lives being exposed, it's quite clear, things aren't how they used to be and a WWE Superstar is expected to be on their best behavior outside of the ring.
8 Rousey & The Twins
It's truly bizarre to think that even something as simple as cleavage is a thing of the past inside the realm of the WWE. During the Attitude Era, such a visual was welcomed on a weekly basis. Who can forget the likes of Trish, Sable and Torrie, rocking some of the edgiest tops. Heck, even the Vince's daughter Stephanie was looking "Not So PG" on a regular basis, wearing cleavage friendly tops weekly.
Judging by the article, it seems like Ronda was made for the Attitude Era based on these pics alone. She's a reckless butt kicker in the ring, but has an edgy "Not So PG" look outside of it. Unfortunately nowadays, the WWE will take the butt kicker side of things and tame down the edgy part.
7 Self Magazine
Self Magazine was yet another steamy shoot Ronda took part in. The context of the shoot was rather unique as Ronda brawled it out while rocking edgy attire. As you see in the picture above, it looks like Ronda might have forgotten to put on a pair of pants for the shoot. When it comes to her WWE career, she`s going to need a pair that`s for darn sure.
Aside from maybe Lana, attires nowadays are usually of the PG nature. Particularly waste down, most females rock the short shorts which isn’t too revealing. Something similar to what Ronda`s rocking in the picture above would not fly today, heck we can`t remember the last time a female Superstar rocked a bikini bottom inside the squared circle. Man oh man how the tide has turned in McMahon`s empire.
6 Pants On
In order to hype up a fight, the WWE will usually use several matches before, or, a microphone in the squared circle to add fuel to a feud. The UFC doesn't have the same luxury and one of their go-to sources of hyping up a fight is the weigh-ins when the two competitors got face-to-face. Rousey was one of the absolute best in company history at doing say, making us wanting to watch her fights.
The weigh-ins however do feature one awkward moment in particular and that's the female athletes having to disrobe and go on a scale while wearing minimal amounts of clothing. In the WWE, there won't be any need for Ronda to do anything remotely similar (cause like the women don't have weight classes), so the company won't have to worry about her pants coming off...
5 Pulling A Steve Austin (Throwback)
In this throwback picture, Ronda channels her inner Stone Cold Steve Austin flipping off the camera while chilling in sauna. Back in the late 90s, Vince would welcome such a gesture but in this day and age such an act won't be tolerated in the WWE. Heck Brad Maddox got fired from the company for calling fans "cocky p****s" during a dark promo (a promo that wasn’t even filmed). That just shows how strict the company has become.
As for Ronda, even in this throwback picture she was taking part in judo and taking a liking for the WWE. She began judo at the tender age of 11 and she would take that skill to the Olympic Games in Athens at the age of 17 if you can believe. Along with judo skills she was also a big WWE fan as we mentioned. Roddy Pipper was one of her favorites which in truth shouldn't shock anyone given both their larger than life personas. RIP Roddy.
4 The Maxim Shoot
Rousey has done her best in breaking the internet several times before. Not only has she went viral for her contributions in the cage, but more times than not, she's also made the headlines for things outside of the cage such as steamy "Not So PG" photo-shoots.
We flashback to one of Ronda's best shoots for the highly coveted Maxim Magazine. The spread featured a slew of "Rated R" shots such as the one you see in the picture above. Back in the 90s, such a picture would be welcomed by Vince but nowadays, things have shifted as the company now looks at female Superstars as athletes like the men and not "pieces of candy".
Rousey knows a thing or two about both (being eye candy and a butt kicker), not only is she one of the greatest of all-time in the octagon but she was ranked 29th on the Maxim top 100 list. For those of you keeping score at home, that's higher than any WWE Superstar in the history of the list.
3 PDA Sessions
We recently published a piece on "lovemaking" in the WWE. Looking at the article, it's hard to believe how far the WWE pushed the envelope back in the 90s and the early portion of the 2000s. Today, such skits are few and far between. We saw a little bit of edge between Lana and Enzo out of all people at one point, but even that halted quickly with a brutal beatdown by Rusev. Seriously though, how many beatings has Enzo taken in the past?
Of course, we likely won't see any type of PDA from Rousey and her current man Travis Browne while on WWE TV. For what it's worth, the happy couple recently got engaged as Brownie asked the question in April of 2017. He did so under a waterfall in New Zealand. You see folks, fighters can also be romantic.
2 More Maxim
There's just something about the color white and a smoking hot lady. Ronda rocks the look perfectly in this Maxim throwback picture. The photo appears to be of the "Not So PG" nature as Ronda once again looks fearless, sorry, we mean braless in the photo. With women hardly ever rocking white in WWE, Rousey would likely not be able to either unfortunately.
As we stated previously, she's began her training with current WWE Cruiserweight Brian Kendrick according to the recent news. Unlike UFC however, image is a huge factor so one can assume Ronda's diet is also on point. She was a vegan at one point in time but now, she's settled for organic foods only. One can assume she's doubling down on her diet with the expectations of a debut in the very near future.
1 Possible Bray Wyatt Entrance Pose?
We end the article with another smoking hot picture from Ronda's stunning SI body paint spread. In this picture however, she's looking a little Bray Wyatt like rocking a similar pose on a creepy tree that looks like it was taken out of the Wyatt family household. Speaking of the Wyatt family household, how bad was the House of Horrors match, you knew it was a bad idea when the likes of Michael Hayes came up with the concept...
Okay back to Ronda, we likely won't see such a pose and attire but at least we'll have these breathtaking pics to remember the shoot. In a perfect world, we'd see Ronda take on a WWE Superstar in a "body paint match". Heck, if this was the 90s, such a match would have likely taken place with the entire women's roster taking part. Sable did it practically nude with paint on her puppies alone, so there's no doubt they could have taken that step!
