It should not be forgotten that Rousey had a very good reception when she joined The Rock for an in-ring dust-up with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon during WrestleMania 31. WWE fans went insane when Rousey entered the ring, and they ate it up when she hip-tossed Triple H and put McMahon in an armbar.
Fast forward two years, and Rousey (12-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) has experienced an epic UFC downfall after being destroyed by Holly Holm to lose her title and champ Amanda Nunes in her comeback fight.
Ronda Rousey still hasn't made any official decision regarding her future in fighting, but all signs point towards her career with the UFC being near the end.
But there's at least one prominent WWE personality Paul Heyman who still believes a marriage between Rousey and WWE makes sense (via "The Fight Society" podcast). McMahon said. "I know that she loves WWE and we certainly love her, so it would be a match, no pun intended, made in heaven".
"Just her name recognition alone is huge", he said. "All that matters is if she got involved in a story that people could relate to and sink their teeth into and get excited about".
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 risky woman. Rolling Stone reported that UFC president, Dana White, had said that Rousey's career was "probably over."
- Paul Heyman thinks Ronda Rousey would be a "natural fit" for WWE.
"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. "Strength coach & nutrition specialist" Dan Garner, who has worked with professional athletes across numerous sports, revealed on Facebook that he is now working with Rousey. "Look at Nia Jax, I mean you talk about someone that could truly make you believe she could kick Ronda Rousey's ass".
However, Ronda Rousey is still one of the biggest stars in mixed martial arts and entertainment.
