Is WWE Still Interested In UFC’s Ronda Rousey?

We previously reported that WWE was interested in bringing in a UFC Fighter for this year’s WrestleMania 33 event. Two names that WWE had in mind at the time were Conor McGregor and Ronda Rousey.

Following Ronda’s loss at UFC 207, many speculated that WWE might not be as interested in bringing her in as they once was before because she had been exposed in her last two fights. However that’s not the case. We’ve heard that the company is still interested in bringing her in, as they feel she is still a major Superstar. Not only does the company feel that she is a top Superstar, they also feel she has a lot of drawing power, as her last fight at UFC 207 against Amanda Nunes did around 1.1 million pay-per-view buys.

    PWMania wrote in part: “Following Ronda’s loss at UFC 207, many speculated that WWE might not be as interested in bringing her in as they once was before because she had been exposed in her last two fights.” The comment is on the money, but it should have read “once were” not “once was.” And in second reference, she should be identified by her last name, though that is more a journalistic preference — not a hard and fast rule. And if you really want to tighten up the writing, instead of saying “they” in reference to the WWE, should state “it” which is a singular entity. I know I am coming off as a writing snob, but I am a professional journalist and merely offering tips. This is a great site for pro wrestling fans…

    At this point, I wouldn’t mind seeing her on Raw. It’ll put an end to the Sasha and Charlotte and Bayley show. It’d make things interesting.

      Leon,
      When Rousey and the Rock dealt a mini beatdown on Triple H & Stephanie, at Wrestlemania, Rousey was the A-lister… While I agree she would be an upgrade over Sasha and Bayley, if she were in a singls match with Charlotte. the only legit female wrestler,.But Rousey would still command top dollar. And who knows if she’d really be that good? I’d rather see a tag team of Holly Holm & Miesha Tate (sexy) against Charlotte & Natalya. If you want a kick-ass woman from UFC, why not Amanda Nunes? Would love to see her go up against Alicia Fox! These two scenarios would still be cheaper and more credible than Rousey, but it’s just my opinion…

        I agree. Problem is several of those women are still under contract in ufc
        Dana white wouldn’t allow that. I would like to see it

    Of course, WWE was still going to be interested. Anybody who thought otherwise including Johnathan Coachman was a fool!
