If the rumors are true, then Ronda Rousey’s WWE debut is inching ever closer, and Torrie Wilson is fully behind The Rowdy One stepping in the ring.
The worlds of WWE and MMA seem to be colliding and overlapping more and more as of late. Brock Lesnar stepped back into the octagon, CM Punk tried his luck in UFC, and just last week, Jack Swagger signed a contract with Bellator. It’s not all one-way traffic out of the world of pro wrestling though as there are also MMA stars coming the other way.
The Four Horsewomen of MMA have had a big presence in WWE over the past few months. Shayna Baszler competed in the Mae Young Classic tournament this summer and made it all the way to the final, eventually losing to Kairi Sane. The rest of the horsewomen could often be found at ringside cheering on their compatriot, and the crown jewel of the quartet is, of course, Ronda Rousey.
Well, it seems that Ronda wants more than a ringside seat. The former UFC Bantamweight Champion has apparently been training so that she can become a WWE Superstar herself. It was reported that Rousey began training at WWE’s Performance Center and 205 Live star and ring veteran Brian Kendrick has been helping her get ring ready.
One former WWE Superstar, in particular, thinks that if WWE doesn’t make use of Rousey, then they would be making a big mistake. TMZ recently caught up with Torrie Wilson who described Rousey as a ‘badass’ and that she would be “a force to be reckoned with” if she were to compete in WWE. It’s hard to argue with that considering the pedigree of the woman in question as well as the source of the comments.
Ronda Rousey has been a lifelong fan of professional wrestling, and already had a close relationship with the company before being present for the Mae Young Classic. At WrestleMania 31, The Rock invited her into the ring and she managed to lay out Triple H. The WWE Universe wants more than just a cameo from Rousey though, and just imagine the dream matches that could come to fruition if she were to become a fully fledged WWE Superstar.
