During a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ronda Rousey told Ellen that her upcoming fight at the UFC 207 against Amanda Nunes would definitely be one of her last fights and claimed that the show is not going to be around forever.
WWE chief brand officer, Stephanie McMahon went on to say that the WWE would love to have her wrestle once she’s done fighting.
Explaining their interest in Ronda, Stephanie said that the fans of the WWE loved Ronda and that she has the cross platform appeal in terms of all forms of entertainment. She claimed that the WWE would open her with open arms and that she is a total package.
Stephanie’s husband, Triple H who also happens to be a WWE bigwig claims that Rousey and the WWE had talked about doing things in the future after a recent trip to England. If Ronda had to appear in the WWE, this would not be her first appearance, as she had already been alongside the Rock at WrestleMania 31, where she hip-tossed Triple H and also slammed Stephanie during an in-ring promo, much to the delight of the Santa Clara, California crowd.
One big name that has been constantly been tagged with a possible return and has always been elusive has been Kurt Angle. Almost every year, for any big pay per view, there have been rumblings of an impending return. In a recent Q&A session on his Facebook page, he revealed a lot of information and spoke about who he’d like to face if he returned at WrestleMania.
He said that he would like to face Brock Lesnar again with the only difference this time being that he hoped to be in better shape.
Speaking about the superstars he would like to face, he dropped a big list of superstars like Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Rusev, Kevin Owens but Angle seemed to be hell bent on facing Seth Rollins as he called him the best in the business and called him one of the best in the world.
So, this brings us to the question we have been waiting to be answered for a long time. Will this finally be the year when we see Kurt Angle back in the WWE ring? Will we see Intensity, Integrity and Intelligence in the American colors and see the superstar who won a gold medal with a broken freakin neck back into action? Time will only tell.
A new report has emerged from one of the popular sports outlet claiming that Bayley is set to win the WWE RAW Women’s championship at the grandest stage of them all this year, at WrestleMania 33 from Orlando, Florida on April 2, 2017.
Obviously that would mean that the feud between Charlotte and Bayley would take a while to take off, given that we do not want to see another series of matches between Charlotte and Sasha Banks. Maybe having Nia Jax in the picture would serve as a change, or even Dana Brooke added to the equation might spice things up a bit.
Having Bayley begin her program with Charlotte and go all the way for the next 12-13 weeks would be way too much, as fans have already been complaining about the matches between Sasha and Charlotte. Even though they produced five star matches, the chemistry was just getting worn out. Maybe this is the right time for the WWE to bring back Paige, and insert her into the title picture.
Current MMA superstar and former WWE superstar CM Punk reportedly gave off his actual WWE title belt, the former world championship he won and held for 434 days before dropping it to the Rock at the Royal Rumble in 2012.
The recipient of the title belt was Cliff Compton, the person from a KFC commercial or better known as former WWE Tag team champion from SmackDown, Domino, a part of the Deuce and Domino tag team.
The ‘gift’ was given to Domino when he went visiting Punk and curiously asked him whether that was the same title he held in the WWE. Punk promptly said yes and asked him to take it and wished him a Merry Christmas.
