Former UFC Star Ronda Rousey Makes WWE Debut
Well played WWE.
One of the biggest female athletes in the world made her debut at this year's WWE Royal Rumble, and the way it was done fooled everyone, even though they already knew.
See, this year was WWE's first ever Women's Royal Rumble match. 30 women in the ring for an over-the-top-rope battle royal for a chance at a championship match at Wrestlemania. So may people predicted that former UFC Champion Ronda Rousey was going to make her debut in the match that it felt like a lock. But after all of the women's wrestling legends made their way out, and all of the up-and-coming stars made their debuts, it was just those groups and the current stars...no Rousey in the match.
But they way it was done didn't make you feel bad. It was a good mix, and a fun match.
Yet, as they let the dust start to settle in the ring between the winner Asuka, and champions Charlotte Flair and Alexa Bliss, Joan Jett's "I Don't Give A Damn About My Reputation" started blaring, as Ronda Rousey's name displayed on all of the arena's video boards.
There she stood. One of the baddest women on the planet. She came to the ring just as ESPN and other sports media outlets sent out breaking news alerts that she has officially signed a FULL TIME contract with WWE. No part-time stuff, she's going all in.
She hit the ring, and made it known she's heading to New Orleans for Wrestlemania this year...
