Ronda Rousey, former UFC star, 'finalizing' a deal with WWE

Ronda Rousey, former UFC star, 'finalizing' a deal with WWE

Rousey, along with Duke and Shafir, egged on WWE's version of the "Four Horsewomen" - Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch and Bayley - across the entrance ramp, and WWE even released a video of a confrontation between the groups in the parking lot.

USA Today reports that "two people close" to Rousey asserted that the Olympic bronze medalist is finalising a deal to jump across to Vince McMahon's pro-graps megalith, which would quite obviously carry a hefty price-tag with it given Rousey's star appeal.

The MMA legend's UFC career effectively ended a year ago after losing to Amanda Nunes in just 48 seconds.

Rogers adds that Rousey has been working out at the WWE's High Performance Center in Orlando, Fla. Sources close to the ex-UFC Women's Bantamweight champ revealed she is now undergoing the formalities of finalising the switch to the sports entertainment giants. Her final fight with Nunes was in December of a year ago. She likely won't be a worker like her friend Shayna Baszler, but someone who comes in during tentpole events for big storylines.

When Rousey came into the UFC she was a trailblazer.
