Ronda Rousey signs with WWE
She has arrived.
Ronda Rousey stole the show in the Royal Rumble on Monday (Manila time) in Philadephia as she came out and sent an ominous message to the top female wrestlers in the company.
The former UFC women’s bantamweight champion showed up after the historic first ever women’s Royal Rumble match just when eventual winner Asuka was going to pick her opponent at WrestleMania 34.
Rousey had a staredown with Asuka, SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte, and Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss before shaking the hand of Raw commissioner Stephanie McMahon.

In a report by ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, the 30-year-old has signed a full-time contract with the WWE, which very well ensures his spot in the promotion’s biggest event at WrestleMania 34 in April.
Rousey last fought Amanda Nunes at UFC 2017 back in December 2016 before leaving the mixed martial arts company.
