Jim Ross Comments On Chael Sonnen/WWE Rumors, Ronda Rousey At WrestleMania

WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross, who has teamed with Chael Sonnen in the past for the BattleGrounds MMA pay-per-view broadcast team, recently shared his thoughts on the rumors that Sonnen has been invited by WWE to appear at WrestleMania later this year, as well as his belief that Ronda Rousey would also make for a perfect celebrity guest at the show.

While WWE has since denied Sonnen’s claims, the legendary announcer still thinks Sonnen and Rousey would be a perfect fit for the sports entertainment spectacle.

Ross wrote the following about the subject in his latest website blog:

“My friend Chael Sonnen said on TSN’s Off the Record that he was going to meet with WWE officials in the near future. If accurate, Chael is a natural for WWE as he “gets it” and is a fan of the business notwithstanding the fact that he stays in excellent physical condition and is a natural born showman. If Chael were to join WWE, he would become their 2nd best talker behind @HeymanHustle from day one. Sonnen could be utilized in the ring or behind a mic SO easily. I’m anxious to see how this plays out. I’m happy to stay tuned.

With that said the top attraction from the world of MMA in my opinion is @RondaRousey who’s nothing but box office and has a truck load of charisma and lives with the Four Horsewomen who are all big wrestling fans. It would be so easy to book this attraction while garnering tons of publicity.

Needless to say, the entire MMA/WWE connection is nothing more than speculation at this time but I do know that Ronda Rousey and her Horsewomen would be fun for which to create a WM31 scenario.

Gathering outside the WWE Universe publicity is imperative for every WrestleMania and other major events if the inclusion of the celebrity is organic. With Chael and/or Ronda that transition is easy. What about Ronda and Rowdy Roddy Piper in a mixed tag match? So now, here comes the Ric Flair and Charlotte suggestions as their opponents.”
