In an appearance that made the rounds both offline and online, Ronda Rousey showed up in the closing segment of the WWE Royal Rumble at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia recently.
It was then revealed that Rousey signed a contract with WWE on a full-time basis.
In the said segment, Kanako Urai, better known as Asuka, was about to choose on which belt she would vie for after winning the first-ever women’s Royal Rumble match, the headliner of the said wrestling show.
But Rousey showed up and pointed at the Wrestlemania logo just behind the arena’s roof, hinting that a storyline is being built up for her leading to a potential title match at the said event in New Orleans in April.
The former UFC women’s bantamweight champion, however, implicitly said she was not yet retiring from MMA despite losing her last two matches, the recent against Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 in Las Vegas on Dec. 31, 2016. PNA
