Mixed martial arts star Ronda Rousey may be coming to an agreement to end his long-awaited move to WWE, USA Today & # 39; s Martin Rogers reported Wednesday.
Rousey has not officially retired from MMA but has not fought since losing to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 in December 2016. UFC President Dana White cast significant doubts about Rousey's future with the company last month, when he told reporters that " would not want to see" his fight in the UFC again.
A transition to the professional fight would not be surprising for Rousey. She made a unique appearance at WrestleMania 31 in 2015 to face Stephanie McMahon and Triple H, and many in WWE have openly discussed the possibility since then.
W We seemed to confirm the imminent arrival of Rousey when he shared a Twitter clip of Rousey, Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke in the Mae Young Classic. The trio was confronted behind the scenes by Charlotte Flair, Bayley and Becky Lynch:

EXCLUSIVE: @MsCharlotteWWE @itsBayleyWWE and @BeckyLynchWWE intersect with @RondaRousey @MarinaShafir and @jessamynduke in #MaeYoungClassic! https://t.co/Ipc7YW5nv2
The time of Rousey's arrival would make sense if it officially arrived in the coming weeks. The WrestleMania season is just around the corner, and there is no doubt that WWE would like Rousey's debut to coincide with one of the most important shows of the year.
If WWE did not want to wait until WrestleMania 34 on April 8, then Rousey could appear at the Royal Rumble 2018 on January 28 at the Wells Fargo Center. She could be involved in a wrestling segment that sets her WrestleMania story, or she could even be a surprise participant in the Royal Rumble match, as the event always presents some surprises.
Rousey's move to WWE feels inevitable, and it was only a matter of the two sides finally coming together to reach an agreement. Based on Rogers' report, the saga may be coming to its conclusion.
