Ronda Rousey has been offered an opportunity to become a “Paul Heyman girl”.

Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (12-2) is indeed on demand. Although the future of her fighting career is unclear, she is certainly involved in action.

Earlier this month Rousey made headlines with her appearance in the Blindspot Episode 20. The most recent is the talks about her possible career in the WWE.

Famed American entertainer Paul Heyman joined the Fight Society podcast on Tuesday. He spoke Brock Lesnar, Ronda Rousey as well as previewed the WrestleMania 33. In regards to female MMA star, the WWE manager expressed no doubts in her success if she joins the show.

“I think the WWE audience would embrace Ronda Rousey with open arms,” said Heyman. “Just her name recognition alone is huge. It doesn’t matter her past two experiences in UFC.”

Rousey was riding the 12-fight undefeated streak in MMA. She defended her UFC bantamweight title six times. In the seventh defense in 2015 she suffered a knockout defeat in Round 2 against Holly Holm. In her 2016 comeback fight she similarly lost by KO against Amanda Nunes in Round 1.

“All that matters is if she got involved in a story that people could relate to and could sink their teeth into and get excited about. I think Ronda Rousey doing anything in WWE is a natural fit.”

“I’d love to see it and would be happy to discuss with her all of the benefits that she could inure by being a Paul Heyman girl”.

In 2015, shoulder to shoulder with “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson, Rousey appeared inside the ring at WrestleMania 31. She clashed with Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.

Women’s roster

In addition, Heyman gives several names who in his opinion are capable to form an opposition for the 2015 Rolling Stone’s world’s most dangerous woman. As well, to make plenty of money.

“I would personally pay to see Charlotte versus Ronda Rousey. I would personally pay to see Stephanie McMahon versus Ronda Rousey for a completely different reason but why digress,” he says.

“There are women in WWE, it’s not just Charlotte, that could probably provide a compelling main event against Ronda Rousey.”

“Look at Nia Jax. I mean you talk about someone that could truly make you believe she could kick Ronda Rousey’s ass, Nia Jax is an impressive performer and a hell of an athlete as well.”

“It’s not like Charlotte is the only one who could be paired up with Ronda Rousey. There are others as well.

“The women’s roster in WWE right now is unparalleled. In the history of pro wrestling or sports entertainment, there’s never been a women’s roster like this.”
