WrestleMania 34 will feature some major former (and maybe future) UFC stars with Ronda Rousey teaming with Kurt Angle to take on Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, while Brock Lesnar will face off with Roman Reigns to defend his WWE Universal Championship.
With those two former UFC top stars in the building, Dana White decided to take a flight from New York to New Orleans following the debacle that was UFC 223 so he could take in the spectacle that is WrestleMania 34. White posted a picture to Twitter showing that he’s not just going to watch, but he’s going to be there cheering on Rousey in full force in her match, rocking a Rowdy Ronda Rousey shirt for the occasion.
White enjoys fueling a bit of controversy, so while he’s posting this to say he’s supporting Rousey, there’s no doubt he’s also sending fans something of a message. White posted a picture with Brock Lesnar back in February during WWE’s Elimination Chamber PPV as a not so subtle jab and has not been shy about saying Lesnar will be returning to UFC in the near future.
Many expect that announcement to come shortly after WrestleMania when Lesnar is expected to drop the title to Reigns and Lesnar’s deal with WWE runs up. That said, there’s always a chance for a swerve and maybe, just maybe, it’ll be a work to give fans a surprise.
