Ronda Rousey makes appearance at Royal Rumble, signs full-time with WWE – The Denver Post

“Rowdy” Ronda Rousey can now add professional wrestler to her résumé.

Rousey, 30, made a surprise appearance after the World Wrestling Entertainment’s women’s Royal Rumble match Sunday. She signed a full-time contract with the WWE, ESPN reported during her appearance.

“This is my life now. First priority on my timeline for the next several years. This is not a smash-and-grab; this is not a publicity stunt,” she said to ESPN.

As Asuka celebrated her Royal Rumble victory next to Raw women’s champion Alexa Bliss and SmackDown women’s champion Charlotte Flair, Joan Jett’s “Bad Reputation” blasted across the speakers. Rousey came out wearing a shirt with “Rousey” printed on it, in the same style of the “Hot Rod” shirts that former WWE pro wrestler “Rowdy” Roddy Piper wore. Fitting as Rousey earned her nickname from Piper.

The former UFC women’s bantamweight champion was reportedly close to signing a deal with the WWE last December. Her last mixed martial arts fight was in December 2016 when she lost via knockout to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207.
