Ronda Rousey will face Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss later this month and now has revealed she has her eyes on an additional goal – the main event of WrestleMania.
In an interview with Sports Illustrated she confessed that plan is in the forefront of her mind.
“It’s definitely a goal of mine to be one of the first women to headline WrestleMania,” said Rousey. “But who that would be against or even if that would be a possibility is yet to be seen.”
She also reflected on her MMA career and how she helped break barriers for future competitors.
“I’m most proud of the innovation it took,” said Rousey. “My mom says all the time that ideas are a dime a dozen, and I think that I’m not the first person that had the ideas that I did, but I’m the first person that acted upon them in the way that I did. It would have been nice if there were a path already cleared for me to tread but then again, it wasn’t meant for my journey to be easy.
“I was meant to be the one that clears that path, the one to make the journey a little bit easier for everyone after me so they can keep clearing paths for those behind them. It’s almost kind of like we can all only go as far as we possibly can and make it a little bit easier for the people after us so that they can go a little farther than we did.”

On the road to SummerSlam, however, ProWrestlingSheet’s Ryan Satin noticed an ad promoting an event for September that pictured Ronda Rousey as the Raw Women’s Champion, possibly hinting at an upset against Alexa Bliss.
