It’s no surprise that WWE have been wanting to get Ronda Rousey on WWE television for a while. The UFC star, who is a big fan of pro wrestling, appeared at WrestleMania 31 alongside The Rock to confront Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. The plan for this year’s WrestleMania was that the four of them take part in a tag team match but it never came to fruition.
It could happen next year now that Rousey is back from her “sabbatical” and Stephanie McMahon talked to USA Today, touching upon the mutual admiration the company has for the former women’s bantamweight champion:
“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.
Pop culture is a huge strategy for WWE, our storylines are reflective of what’s happening in the world and what’s popular. In sports, it doesn’t get much more popular than Ronda.”
