Ronda Rousey gained superstar status for her dominance in mixed martial arts and for her looks.
And now she seems to be parlaying all of those things into her next acting gig—as a pro wrestler
With her UFC career apparently over, Rousey, who has already appeared in the ring at a 2015 WrestleMania event, seems to be poised for a stint with the WWE.
That could be exactly the plan for the former UFC champion and Olympic judo bronze medalist, as a website devoted to MMA and wrestling recently reported that Rousey has gone “as far as to learn some of the basics” of pro wrestling. According to WWE sources, the company “referred Rousey … to current superstar Brian Kendrick for training purposes in Southern California.”
Rousey, who has been known as a major fan of pro wrestling, was spotted speaking with WWE executive Triple H at a taping for the Mae Young Classic—the WWE’s all-female tournament where she was in attendance to cheer for her friend Shayna Baszler.
Baszler is a former UFC fighter competing in the tournament, but her presence sparked renewed speculation that she herself might be close to joining the action.
And, really, why wouldn’t she? It has all the action of UFC without all that ugly contact that Rousey had far too much of in her last two bouts.
