WWE Hall of Famer Booker T discussed recent reports about Ronda Rousey's return to WWE. Booker T stated that Ronda Rousey's marketing appeal to WWE was unlimited.

Booker T, on his Hall of Fame podcast, was asked about former WWE RAW Champion, Ronda Rousey. The WWE legend was unsure about Rousey's return and wasn't excited about it. The Hall of Famer said Rousey did very well in WWE, but she didn't capitalize on the opportunities to become the biggest thing in the company's history.

"As far as Ronda goes, nothing moves me, as far as when you say Ronda Rousey is coming back to the WWE. Maybe for a lot of people, but for me, Ronda Rousey still has... I can't give her a blank cheque. I can't, say, give her the perfect grade. I just can't do it."
"And until Ronda Rousey shows me a little bit more, that's how I'm going to be as far as that goes. If she can come back to the WWE and show me something other than going out and playing 'wrestler', we might get somewhere."

He said that if he were Ronda Rousey, with her Olympic and UFC background, he would have sought to create history in WWE and also make more money in the process. However, Booker T praised Rousey's former rival Becky Lynch and was keen to see her in WWE once again.
