Ronda Rousey hasn’t spoke much about her UFC career since losing to Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes in back-to-back fights, but the former women’s bantamweight champion has teased at a switch to professional wrestling.
Speaking to TMZ Sports on Tuesday, Rousey, who was once considered the Mike Tyson of women’s MMA, hinted that she could be heading to WWE in the near future.
“If you were a real fan, would you really wanna know?” Rousey teased when asked by TMZ. “I enjoy it more that way, and I don’t wanna ruin anything.”
Rousey’s husband, UFC heavyweight veteran Travis Browne, also implied that he is in negotiations with WWE.
“We’re still making decisions on my part… I’m not gonna say no!” Browne said.
Rousey, 30, made a one-off appearance at WrestleMania 31 in 2015, judo throwing WWE legend Triple H after being invited into the ring by none other than Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
Although Rousey’s MMA career looks to have come to an end and the former Olympian is no longer considered the ‘baddest woman on the planet’, ‘Rowdy’ could be a huge star in the WWE.
Rumors have circulated of a move to professional wrestling since last year, and Rousey made a strong impression at the recent WWE Mae Young Classic, where Rousey and her ‘Horsewomen’ had a tense staredown with WWE’s Horsewomen
