Ronda Rousey On A WWE Return: “I Know It’s Going To Happen”

16

UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey recently appeared on The Fight Network and had some interesting comments to make regarding her potential future in WWE.

Rousey appeared at WrestleMania 31 earlier this year, “stealing the show” in her segment, which also included Hollywood A-lister Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and two longtime top WWE performers, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, but after the show, UFC President Dana White made it clear that her appearance was a “one-and-done” and that he would not allow her to return for an actual match, which was apparently the plan on WWE’s side all along.

In talking with John Pollock of The Fight Network, Rousey addressed her future in the world of professional wrestling, leaving the door open for fans to continue to hold out hope that Rousey may appear in a WWE ring again one day.

“Umm, I don’t know,” said Rousey when asked if her pro wrestling days are over. “I have so much going on. You never really know and the foreseeable future has all been planned out with other things.”

Rousey continued, “But one of the legends of wrestling that I met with in the back — he told me something very interesting. He said that you never retire from wrestling, you just step away for a while and then it draws you back at some point later.”

Having said that, it sounds as though Rousey is in agreement with that theory.

“And, so now that I’m started, it’s apparently impossible to retire and some day I will find my way back there. I don’t know how or when, but I know it’s going to happen,” Rousey concluded.

For now, Rousey is focused on her next battle, which instead of the squared circle, will take place in her home away from home — the Octagon — as she defends her UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship against undefeated contender Bethe Correia in the main event of UFC 190, which takes place on Saturday, August 1, 2015 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
