WWE Might Already Have Plans In Place For Some Ronda Rousey Matches

It is no secret that popular UFC star Ronda Rousey is a huge wrestling fan that has attended many WWE events over the years and was a part of WrestleMania 31 as well when she gave Triple H a hiptoss while supporting her buddy, The Rock. Rousey’s wrestling fandom doesn’t stop there either because she’s attended multiple PWG shows in California too.

When WWE taped the Mae Young Classic earlier this summer (now available on WWE Network), they made sure to show when Rousey was arriving to the show in Orlando to support her friend and now finalist, Shayna Baszler. Since then, rumors have surfaced that Rousey has done some wrestling training along with another of her Four Horsewomen friends Jessamyn Duke. It’s likely that Marina Shafir, fiancee of WWE NXT star Roderick Strong, has likely done some training too.

Earlier this week, WWE released a video showing Rousey, Shafir and Duke confronting three of WWE”s Horsewomen Charlotte Flair, Bayley and Becky Lynch. Rousey told the WWE stars: “You name the time, you name the place.” That’s how they left it.

In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer wrote that it’s expected there will be some sort of storyline with the dueling “Four Horsewomen” groups at the Mae Young Classic finals that take place this Tuesday, September 12 in Las Vegas on WWE Network.

There are also rumors, as noted by Meltzer, that there may be a Horsewomen (Charlotte, Bayley, Lynch and Sasha Banks) vs. Horsewomen (Rousey, Baszler, Duke, Shafir) match at Survivor Series. From there, it could lead to Rousey have a singles match at WrestleMania 34 with Meltzer mentioning Stephanie McMahon (teased at WrestleMania 31) and Charlotte as possibilities.

If Rousey were to do the WrestleMania match, I really hope they go with Charlotte Flair as the opponent because WWE needs to put a current women’s superstar in the ring with a mainstream celebrity like Rousey. Putting Stephanie in the ring with Rousey benefits nobody except Stephanie.

At this point, Rousey is still under contract with UFC, but UFC President Dana White has said that Rousey is likely going to retire from MMA, so Rousey joining WWE is a strong possibility.

Rousey stepping into a WWE ring feels more likely than ever. We may find out more at the Mae Young Classic this Tuesday on WWE Network.
