The best thing about her these days were her leaked naked pictures and those weren't great.

I'm sure they will piss off the female roster by giving her a huge pay day for one short match, at a time when he stock has never been lower due to back to back defeats.

She got twatted badly to lose her title to someone who lost it in her first title defence. She should have been brought in when her stock was at it's highest when she shared the Wrestlemania ring with The Rock when she grabbed Steph.

Nowadays she doesn't mean anything like as much to people.

It's true her stock in UFC has never been lower, like many she hit a high then came crashing down and I think many don't expect her to fight again.

Despite that though a hyped up WWE debut would still be big news and would bring a lot of publicity to the company and for a short time at least would likely boost interest in the women's division.

Can't see her coming to WWE full time though, she's made a ton of money in MMA and has done alright in Hollywood as well. Maybe she'll get a Lesnar type deal with WWE and in honesty that would be the best move, if she came in full time there would be a lot of buzz initially but then it would fade. Using her as a special attraction like Brock would keep her value high.

Yeah I don't see her there full time, but maybe early on she'd work a relatively heavy schedule, for all TV tapings just so she can make the featured storyline a big deal, but after that the schedule would lighten considerably.

She's still a big deal though, just because she's not constantly being talked about doesn't mean the buzz wouldn't be insane if she officially made the jump to the WWE.

  • Ronda Rousey has been training recently at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando. Plans appear back on to have a Horsewoman vs. Horsewoman match at WrestleMania 34, giving her, Marina Sharif and Jessamyn Duke several months to train and get ready.

  • If the match goes off well, there is a good chance that things will build towards a singles match for Rousey somewhere down the line. It was originally expected that if Rousey wrestled in any sort of singles match, it would be against Stephanie McMahon, but it's now expected to be Charlotte Flair.

Credit to her she's taking the chance really seriously to be down there training already and learning the wrestling way.
 
E will do a brilliant job of building her up, even though in the MMA world at the moment she's seen as pretty washed up from back to back defeats.
 
When she gets her first mic time in a E ring to start building to something, she will get a pop.

That was always going to be the case though, she was never going to go to the WWE until she was done with her MMA career, and she was never going to be done with her MMA career until she was losing and didn't want to compete anymore.

This should be something to look forward to, but I really doubt WWE's ability to make a good storyline of it. As of now the stuff they've teased for storylines have been really pretty awful and that's coming from someone that would really like to see this feud come to pass.

The rumor mills are now reporting that her contract with the WWE is 'all but signed' at this point, and that her debut in the WWE is 'imminent.' She has, within the last few weeks, transitioned from training with The Brian Kendrick to training with Natalya Neidhart instead.

Apparently Vince is very high on the Horsewomen vs Horsewomen match for WrestleMania, plus the press Rousey will bring will be a huge boon for WWE as well.

So remember that discussion I had about Rousey being an 'easy get' for the Women's Royal Rumble? Looking better than ever now, as a matter of fact, I would say Rousey debuting at the Royal Rumble might even be more likely than a women's royal rumble match.

nah, I can't see them debuting since a big name that they have Mania Marquee plans for in the middle of a 30-competitor match that she would obviously not win.

interference, yes, I oculd see that, since a debut at EC in Feb, and definitely FastLane in March would not allow all that much time for a Mania build, but still possible for EC.

Quote Porn star Mia Khalifa has been the subject of some media attention recently after a social media exchange with a former WWE Superstar following comments she made during a recent podcast appearance on YouTube.

Khalifa was on the YouTube show, Out Of Bounds, where she criticized former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey for transitioning out of MMA competition and into the scripted sports entertainment world of WWE.

"This is where her career will go to die," Khalifa said during her appearance on the aforementioned YouTube show (see above). "I have no respect for the WWE, it's not a real sport. It's embarrassing."

It was those comments that led to a tweet by former WWE Superstar Shane "Hurricane" Helms calling out Khalifa, and resulting in himself being on the receiving end of some media attention for alleged "slut-shaming."

"I’m not gonna get upset that a Porn Star doesn’t respect Pro Wrestling," wrote Helms via his official Twitter page (see below). "She’s entitled to her opinion. Our bodies take a pounding. and well ... so does hers."

Check out media coverage of the story via The New York Times and The U.K. Sun.

A porn star calling wrestling embarassing is the funniest thing I have heard in a long time.
 
Mia appears to be trying to make herself a storyline in the hope of facing her, but E would never be interested in someone from the adult industry.
 
Helms reply is great. He's also very right in saying both industries you take a pounding LOL

If only Khalifa said this in the attitude era, this could have been the workings of one hell of an angle.

slut-shaming?

nah, you can't claim to be slut shamed because someone has mockingly looked down their nose at your career when you've made a disparaging remark about their entire career and business.

take it as what it was, a low ball remark in reply to a low ball remark from someone desperate for mainstream attention .
