Rousey is unreal

In her MMA career she has only spent 25 mins in the cage - she gets things done FAST

It's... scary, how good this woman is. I mean, really. Zigano, from the fights of hers that I've seen, is the furthest thing from a scrub in terms of Women's MMA. How she all but massacred Miesha Tate, the only other good fighter in the division (That isn't Rousey) is proof of that.

And Rousey made her tap in less than a quarter of a minute.

At some point, she's gotta be bored with how easily she's dominating everyone she's facing because of how ahead of the entire division, probably ahead of every single female fighter on the planet she is. In 11 professional fights,  only one fight has gone past the first round. That shows you how little she's been tested and I don't think you'll be able to find anyone able to do that. Shit, Cyborg may look like she could beat Brock's ass, but Ronda would probably eat her alive in the cage.

The question now is... where does she go when she's cleared out the division?

I would not doubt that at SOME POINT in time she will work with or for the WWE because she is a huge mark for the business. As far as wwe's bottom line is concerned, the sooner the better.

Rousey says there is no way she doesn't get back into a WWE ring.

I wonder when she will realistically be able to pull this off?

Everyone talks about Dana White not letting her work for Vince at the same time, but obviously something was worked out at WrestleMania.

TBH She sounds like she wants more than just a special appearance now. She sounds like she's just found her drug of choice.

She also has an interview on Roddy Piper's Piper's Pit podcast that I have yet to listen to, but really want to ASAP. It was referenced a few times in this article, and I would love to hear what else she has to say.
 
In terms of notoriety and fame, Rousey has never been bigger and is rapidly becoming a household name. No doubt her drawing power is through the roof not only for UFC, which is proven, but would likely be just as big for WWE too so long as she was booked like she deserves. She's the female Brock Lesnar, only better to look at and I would assume just by default much better on the mic as well.

It would be best for business for WWE to capitalize on her as much as possible for as long as she's willing to work with them.

Apparently Dana White won't let Rousey wrestle. Period.
 
This is going to put Rousey into an interesting situation. She's obviously fighting August 1 to beat Bitch, and it's fairly certain she's locked up in her contract at least through UFC 200. After that though? Who knows.

Rousey still says her first love is with MMA, but WWE would be dumb not to try and capitalize on her main stream appeal, and she could be the first woman to get something akin to the men's legends contract or something like what Lesnar has where she can pick her dates, work the shows she wants, and choose her opponents. There's no doubt she'll finish out her UFC contract first, but there's also no doubt that she'll work with WWE again when she gets the chance.

Dana White knows that he needs Ronda Rousey more than she needs them. In the end, Ronda has the bigger end of the stick because she's one of the last big draws UFC has right now. So, it's fair game.

However, I'm also convinced that she'll eventually work for WWE in some capacity, whether Dana White likes it or not.

Who needs to pay for a Rousey UFC match when you can get the full gifs next morning?

This was a long match, I was worried for her cardio when it still going after 20 seconds.
