Is a WWE run on the cards for Ronda Rousey?

UFC 207 takes place on December 30th, and the featured attraction is the return of probably the UFC’s best-known name – Ronda Rousey. After what was a historic run in the UFC, Rousey lost her first match against Holly Holm at UFC 193. Ronda has not stepped into the octagon for a year since then, but she makes her much-anticipated comeback against Amanda Nunes at the 207 PPV.

However, in an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres, Rousey claimed that this would be one of her last fights. This leaves the door wide open for Rousey to come to WWE, and considering that she’s a big fan of professional wrestling, this certainly seems like a real possibility. Stephanie McMahon even remarked that she certainly hopes Rousey can come in. But if she does come in, who does Rousey square off against first?

Here are 8 legitimate contenders.

#8- Nia Jax 

This would be a women’s match like we’ve never seen before

Until recently, female performers in WWE were just shapely supermodels who could barely take a bump. Nia Jax has a physique that has never been seen before in the women’s division. A match between her and Rousey would be the first of its kind, among women performers in professional wrestling history.

Nia’s size affords the contest a believability that would make one wonder if Rousey can take this beast down. This would be an encounter between an irresistible force and an immovable object, yet another first for the Women’s Revolution. The mere spectacle of these two behemoths squaring off would sell tickets.
