Allow me to start off this post by congratulating WWE on the MAJOR power move they just made securing UFC Superstar Ronda Rousey.
It was revealed late Sunday evening following Royal Rumble in Philly that Rousey agreed to join the WWE as a full-time superstar per ESPN.com’s Ramona Shelburne.
“This is my life now. First priority on my timeline for the next several years. This is not a smash-and-grab; this is not a publicity stunt,” Rousey told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne of her decision to join WWE. “When I first met with Triple H, I told him, ‘There are other things I can do with my time that’ll make way more money, but I won’t enjoy nearly as much.'”
Following Japanese superstar Asuka claiming her Royal Rumblw victory in the women’s match, WWE women’s champions Alexa Bliss and Charlotte Flair entered on either side of the ring.
She stepped into the ring, pointed to the WrestleMania sign, shook Stephanie McMahon’s hand and officially stepped into a brand-new world.
