Ronda Rousey Joins WWE As Full-Time Pro Wrestler

It's official... Ronda Rousey is a WWE superstar

According to the Wrestler Observer Newsletter, Ronda Rousey's debut will affect the booking of the entire women's roster in a big way.

Rousey emerged following Asuka's victory in the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

It could not have been a more dramatic moment, in terms of the world of WWE.

Stories have been circulating for a long time that Ronda Rousey was heading to the WWE, but the rumours hit fever pitch heading into this weekend's Royal Rumble, which would feature the first-ever women's Rumble alongside the men's match.

Rousey, former Bantamweight champion, appeared on the show and pointed at the WrestleMania sign, implying that she also intends to go to the 'Grandest Stage of Them All' and face either of the women's champions. "Full-time, they got me for a multiyear deal, we are just dotting I's and crossing the T's, so I didn't lie about putting pen to paper, I still haven't yet but this is gonna be my home for the next while".

However, Rousey lost the last two fights of her mixed martial arts career - to Holly Holm in 2015 and Amanda Nunes in 2016.

ESPN reporter Ramona Shelburne later reported that the leather jacket that Rousey was wearing to the ring was given to her by "Rowdy" Roddy Piper's son as gift for her first appearance.

Rousey has ready made programs with Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, the WWE's Four Horsewomen, Asuka, Charlotte and Alexa Bliss based on her appearance on Sunday night.

Ronda Rousey has officially left the MMA ring for the WWE ring. This is not a publicity stunt.

She first came to prominence as a judo star, appearing in the 2004 Athens Olympics as a 17-year-old.

"I think I'd rather just not talk about that right now", she said.

The California native was a huge force at UFC as she enjoyed a six-fight unbeaten streak.
