From the WWE Rumor Mill: Another big Survivor Series match in the works
What's the story?
It looks like the card for Survivor Series is already taking shape. There's going to be a huge main event featuring Brock Lesnar vs Jinder Mahal and who knows how that one will end? Now speculation is circulating concerning another huge match for the show as The Wrestling Observer Newsletter gives some promising news about WWE's Four Horsewomen vs Ronda Rousey and her Horsewomen at the big show in Houston.
In case you didn't know...
Ronda Rousey is a big money name and WWE realizes this. Rousey and her friends had a run-in with 3/4 of WWE's Horsewomen outside of the Mae Young Classic. But even before then, there were rumours saying this would eventually result in a match.
Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have both commented about how much they'd like to have Ronda Rousey perform under the WWE banner as well so it looks like a pretty sure thing at this point.
The heart of the matter
Now The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports Ronda Rousey, Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn Duke, and Marina Shafir are all training in the pro wrestling ring.
Ronda Rousey has been training with The Brian Kendrick in California and Shafir is now training in Orlando. Shayna Baszler is currently at the WWE Performance Center as she recently signed with WWE. Jessamyn Duke has also been training for the last few months at the Santino Bro Wrestling Acadamy in California.
The fact that all four of MMA's Horsewomen are now training in the art of pro wrestling adds even more intrigue to a future match at Survivor Series. There have been rumours that a match between WWE's Four Horsewomen and Ronda Rousey's crew would be set for the big November show for some time now.
Dave Meltzer previously noted how Ronda Rousey will most likely participate in some kind of tag match at Survivor Series and then go on to have a one-on-one match at WrestleMania.
Rousey's current projected opponents are Charlotte Flair or Stephanie McMahon. But you never really know what can happen in WWE.
WWE knows how to cross-promote and they obviously have pretty good communication with UFC. After all, Dana White and Vince McMahon apparently text each other whenever they need to.
The addition of Ronda Rousey to WWE's landscape is an exciting prospect. But I wouldn't hold my breath on "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey taking a full-time schedule with WWE. Then again, crazier things have happened before. But for now, we have Survivor Series to look forward to and that's a start.
