Ronda Rousey Officially Signs With WWE & Makes Surprise Appearance at Royal Rumble

Irene MckinneyJan 30, 2018

'This is my life now. First, bringing back women from the last 15 years to participate in the landmark match was a very classy move.

ESPN reported Rousey had officially signed a full-time contract with the WWE, but there was no word on when her in-ring debut would be.

Given that Nakamura, the victor of the men's Royal Rumble, had already chosen to face WWE Champion AJ Styles earlier on in the night, it makes flawless sense to leave fans waiting to see who Asuka challenges, adding to the intrigue. But she didn't speak on the mic. "There are other things I can do with my time that'll make way more money, but I won't enjoy almost as much".

And that relationship with Piper, who sadly died in 2015, was evident at the Royal Rumble, as Rousey walked into the arena wearing his old leather jacket, given to her as a gift by Piper's family.

Ronda told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne: "This is my life now".

"Dana is still one of my best friends", Rousey said.

Rousey may not have been willing to discuss her past fights, but she did make a statement about her future in MMA. Here's the moment when Ronda appeared at Royal Rumble. However, Asuka is now on the Raw roster where Bliss is champion, and with Charlotte Flair (daughter of WWE legend Ric Flair) presumably being the money match, Flair vs Rousey could be en route.

Staring down her potential competitors, she went to shake Rumble victor Asuka's hand, but was flicked away by the star.

"I'd rather not talk about that right now", she said when pressed on her losses.

That was a contest set up at WrestleMania 31, when Rousey was involved in a confrontation with the WWE Executive Vice President of Talent (real name Paul Levesque) and his wife, the WWE's Chief Brand Officer and on-screen Commissioner of Monday Night Raw.

When your mom appears on WWE. It could be the MMA Horsewomen and the WWE Horsewoman, as well.

Baszler now wrestles for WWE, and the rest of the Horsewomen stable confronted WWE stars Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and Bayley at the female wrestling tournament.

Only time will tell. Apparently, for now, what she wants is a career in WWE.

"I never retired from Judo, so if that's what you guys want to think". It's another to be a WWE superstar.

This is what I loved about the booking of this final segment; it didn't take away from the great match, nor did it take away from victor. The WWE had a long history of featuring women in more sexualized roles, including wrestling in Bra-and-Panties matches, but in recent years has had a big push to portray their women's division more seriously.

We here at the Jiu-Jitsu Times would like to congratulate Ronda Rousey on her new job.
