Ronda Rousey finalising sensational WWE move

What had been rumored for months now appears close to becoming a reality: Ronda Rousey is set to join the WWE.

According to USA Today, Ronda Rousey is finalizing details that will bring the former UFC Champion into the world of WWE. Shayna Baszler gave up mixed-martial arts in favour of pro-wrestling, and is now signed to the WWE after finishing second in the company's women-only Mae Young Classic tournament earlier this year.

Previous reports have stated that Rousey has been training for a pro-wrestling career during visits to the WWE's sprawling Performance Centre complex in Orlando, Florida.

Great vignette. I didn't know what to expect when I saw Baszler compete in the Mae Young Classic, but she thoroughly impressed me.

"I wouldn't want to see it", White told MMAjunkie. "I don't want it to have to happen". The UFC's first female fighter, Rousey began her MMA career 12-0, usually dispatching her foes shortly into the first round, and won acclaim for her skills, looks and charisma. She's got enough money and all that stuff.

Rousey's ties to the WWE are numerous and speculation has been mounting that her apparently imminent jump to the 'E will lead to a marquee matchup at the upcoming WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans next April.

"I'm excited to have the conversation with her and see where it goes". The defeat was her second straight, following a stunning knockout loss courtesy of Holly Holm's left foot in November 2015. It seems a ideal landing spot.

Looking back she may reflect that those extra-curricular activities caught up with her, but so too did the rest of the women's field.

Ronda Rousey was knocked out in her last fight against Amanda Nunes in December 2016.

The level of intrigue with Rousey has actually increased since she started losing. Named five years ago Wednesday as the company's first women's champion even before her first fight, she is credited with being singlehandedly responsible for persuading White to introduce women into the company's roster. This is just the most recent hint that her time in the UFC has come to an end.
