Royal Rumble 2018 may forever be remembered as the night; Ronda Rousey made her long-awaited debut for the WWE. While she may have pointed to the Wrestlemania sign one too many times, her impact was undeniable. The media world exploded, and during the media frenzy, it was reported that Ronda Rousey signed a “full-time” deal with WWE.
Ronda Rousey in the WWE seemed inevitable. However, when Ronda first stepped in a WWE ring in 2015, her undefeated record and UFC belt were still intact. Now, two years and two losses later, Ronda is finally signed to a WWE contract.
While she may be coming off losses, Ronda is still the biggest star in MMA (with the exception of Conor McGregor), and WWE has signed someone who has the ability to help business in a big way.
But when the reports came out saying Ronda’s WWE contract is “full-time”, it left many confused. While we wait to see what she and WWE mean by full-time, Ronda may be better off following the “less is more” approach of her fellow ex-UFC champion, Brock Lesnar.
