It’s not a secret that UFC star Ronda Rousey is a big fan of the WWE.
Of course, the 30-year-old Rousey’s UFC career hasn’t been the same since she lost to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in 2015. While attempting a comeback a year later, Rousey lost to current champion Amanda Nunes at UFC 207. It only took 48 seconds for her to lose via TKO. Since then, it appears that Rousey’s UFC career is over. Her current and likely final record is 12-2 as a professional.
So what’s next for Rousey?
As you can see in the video above, WWE executive vice president of talent Triple H was a guest on ESPN’s SportsCenter and he had some interesting things to say about Rousey. Triple H was asked if Rousey will make her way to the WWE. He joked that she first has to stop throwing him around the ring.
Of course, Triple H was referring to Rousey’s appearance on Wrestlemania 31 when she threw him from one side of the ring to the other during an altercation. That WrestleMania moment must have impacted Triple H as he acknowledged that Rousey is a huge fan of the WWE, and that she is definitely interested in wrestling and that they have talked.
Triple H then said that if Rousey wants a chance to wrestle in the WWE he will give it to her.
In 2014 Rousey was interviewed by WWE.com and was asked if she would cross over to wrestling like Brock Lesner, saying, “You never know.” After Rousey’s appearance at WrestleMania, she did say that “we're just gettin' started.” As you can see in the tweet below.

It looks like Rousey will at least get a chance to have a wrestling career in the WWE. She certainly has the looks and the attitude to be successful in the industry. While Rousey has flamed out in the UFC, she can still prove herself as a wrestler and revive her personal brand, and in WWE she will have a golden opportunity to once again become a star.
