It's all over the internet that Ronda Rousey is on the cusp of signing a deal with the WWE. Not really surprising considering that it's already been reported about how she's been in the performance centre.
But is the WWE signing Ronda Rousey really a good idea?
Sure, on paper, she's still a massive star who has global appeal. But just that isn't enough for someone to make a successful career inside the squared circle.
Wrestlers need to 'pay their dues' and learn the trade the hard way, to start internalising some of the intangibles that go into making a successful pro wrestler.
It's a unique job that many try but few ever manage to excel at.
Will Ronda Rousey excel at it? I, for one, don't think so. And here are 5 reasons why.
As always, if you feel differently or just wish to add on to something I've spoken on, the comments sections are quite available to you on each page.
#1 She can't act to save her life
Every acting-oriented role that Ronda Rousey has undertaken till now, be it in movies or on Saturday Night Live, I think it's fair to say that she's been underwhelming in.
Well, even that would be putting it in diplomatic terms.
To be quite frank, the word 'cringe' comes to mind quite often when one watches Rousey operate with a script.
And there's no reason to think she won't face the same issues when a microphone is stuck in front of her face and she's required to cut promos in real time.
And that, as we've seen so indelibly with Roman Reigns, is damn near a career killer.
If you don't believe me, I dare you to sit through the 'cringeness' of her skit on Saturday Night Live. You'll probably understand why she was booted out of contention in a couple of movies she auditioned for...for not being able to act.
