The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) hosted its annual pay-per-view, Royal Rumble, in Philadelphia.

It was one of the most epic nights in WWE history with all the great matches that were presented to us.

But all eyes were on the first-ever 30-Women Royal Rumble match. It was there when we saw the breaking news start to unveil.

After WWE superstar Asuka won the Royal Rumble match, she had to decide which champion she would face. It was either Raw’s Alexa Bliss or Smackdown’s Charlotte Flair, but that decision would have to wait.

Asuka was joined into the ring by former Mixed Martial Artists, Ronda Rousey.

Rousey introduced herself to Asuka, Bliss, and Flair when she entered the ring and pointed to the WrestleMania sign hanging in the rafters.

Rousey confirmed on ESPN that she has signed a full-time contract with WWE, but she has not retired from MMA. She’ll be focusing 100 percent of her time on WWE.

Rousey’s last UFC bout was in 2016 when she faced UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Amanda Nunes.

“Rowdy” Ronda Rousey is what her persona will be played off. “Rowdy” is paying homage to the late, great professional wrestler “Rowdy” Roddy Piper.

She wore the jacket that Piper wore which was given to her by his son when Piper passed.

The Royal Rumble wasn’t Rousey’s first appearance on WWE. At WrestleMania 31, she made a guest appearance during a segment with Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson, Triple H, and Stephanie McMahon.

This was during the time of their “Fast 7” movie in which Rousey and The Rock co-starred together.

The rumor is that WWE is planning to set up a tag team match with Rousey and The Rock facing Triple H and his wife, Stephanie McMahon.

This year’s WrestleMania, WrestleMania 34, takes place on April 8 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Will it be there when we see the tag-team?

I would honestly like to see Rousey put several WWE superstars in the armbar.
