Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey appears in WWE clip
Despite the future of her career as a fighter appears to be more and more uncertain, Ronda Rousey (12-2) is still arguably the first name that comes up in mind when talking the women’s MMA. Riding a 12-fight undefeated streak she defended UFC belt six times, prior facing a shocking defeat against Holly Holm in 2015, which was followed by an unsuccessful come back against Amanda Nunes last December.
Nevertheless Rosey is certainly on demand outside the Octagon. In addition to her appearances on the big screen, which includes The Expendables and Fast and Furious, in May she was a guest star on Blindspot TV drama on NBC.
As well, following her appearance in 2015 shoulder to shoulder with “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson at Wrestlemania 33, in March American entertainer Paul Heyman said that “WWE audience would embrace Ronda Rousey with open arms”. He also added that he “would be happy to discuss with her all of the benefits that she could inure by being a Paul Heyman girl”.
In a recent video released by WWE Ronda Rousey appears alongside Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir. The women are interviewed about their teammate, Shayna Baszler, with who they have previously dubbed themselves as the MMA’s “Four Horsewomen”, and have appeared at WWE events in 2014 and 2015. The blessing to use such name is given by WWE legend Ric Flair.
The clip then shows Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and Bayley approaching the trio. The action evolves into a slight confrontation.
“You name the time, you name the place. We’re waiting to hear from you,” said Rosey.
WWE version of the “Four Horsewomen” includes the top female athletes, such as Ric’s daughter Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Bayley and Sasha Banks. As a result the MMA and WWE versions of “Four Horsewomen” appear to clash, which is already a storyline.
