Ronda Rousey is someone that the WWE and its fans have wanted to see again for a long time.


The former UFC champion made a surprise appearance at Wrestlemania 31 in 2015 alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson but so far that has been it.

For the benefit of those who may be not aware, Rousey was plucked out of the crowd by The Rock, as the latter was dealing with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. Rousey got a bit physical when, she tossed Triple H and then locked Stephanie with an arm lock. Aside from those that was it.

The Wrestlemania 31 scene involving Rousey led to speculations of a possible match for Wrestlemania 32. That never happened since the UFC didn’t allow it. A lot of things have changed since then.

Totally new scenario following Rousey UFC 193 loss

One is that Rousey is no longer champion, losing to Holly Holm at UFC 193. The other is the case involving Brock Lesnar, who was allowed to compete at UFC 200 against Mark Hunt, a rare scenario.

That rare setup between the WWE and UFC has now brought up fantasy scenarios and that includes the possibility of seeing Rousey in the WWE per Cageside Seats.

Stephanie McMahon, the WWE Chief Brand Officer, admitted through a podcast that Rousey was someone she had long wanted in the company. Seeing that happen may depend on what Rousey has on her plate.

Does Ronda Rousey have the time?

Rousey has been out of the Octagon for quite some time now, following the shock loss to Holm in November 2015. The UFC claims that she will return in late 2016 though not all are convinced she will.

Aside from that, Rousey has a busy schedule in Hollywood. She is busy working on films like “Road House” and “Mile 22” according to Fox Sports and more. With those on deck, seeing Rousey prepare for a UFC comeback is something many are skeptical about.

As far as a WWE stint is concerned, Rousey’s priorities (for now) may prevent her from doing so. She will need proper training to fit in to the WWE culture and that alone needs time.
