It’s official, Ronda Rousey is going to compete in the WWE. After back and forth reports of will she or won’t she show up at the Royal Rumble, we now have confirmation she’s signed a contract to become a Superstar.
Now we’re receiving another round of reports about how she’ll be booked in WWE.
According to Cageside Seats, WWE plans to have Ronda Rousey challenge Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s title and Royal Rumble winner Asuka face Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women’s title at WrestleMania 34, says PW Insider.
However, now according to the Wrestling Observer, the actual plan looks to be putting together the tag team match they teased all the way back at WrestleMania 31 in 2015: Triple H and Stephanie McMahon vs. Ronda Rousey and The Rock.
They note, however, that it’s unclear if they can actually do that match, considering The Rock’s insanely busy schedule and ability to wrestle with his movie deals. He got injured during a match against John Cena years ago and it affected his film work.
Ronda indicated in a post Royal Rumble interview that she’ll obviously be at WrestleMania and in what capacity, it’s all speculation right now.
Stephanie McMahon and Ronda hesitantly shook hands last night and tonight’s preview for Raw promises to elaborate on what Ronda’s arrival means for the women’s division.
What do you think about this report? Which match would you like to see? How do you think Ronda will be booked? Sound off in the comments below.
