Ronda Rousey: Why the newest WWE recruit is 'best for business' and isn't just another Brock Lesnar

WWE Mae Young Classic
The former UFC Bantamweight Champion is set to take the WWE by storm

When Rousey made a show-stopping appearance in the tail-end of the WWE's Royal Rumble pay-per-view last month, wrestling fans of all ages and races paid close attention to the 31-year-old mixed-martial-art artist as she confronted SmackDown champion Charlotte Flair, Raw title-holder Alexa Bliss and rumble winner Asuka while pointing at the WrestleMania sign crafted at the rafters of the Wells Fargo Center.

While most of the WWE Universe were enthralled on the arrival of Rousey, doubts started to creep up that she might follow the footsteps of Lesnar who for one is a great technical wrestler but ruined his stock value due to limited appearances on television.

Rousey is supposed to be inking a deal with Raw at Elimination Chamber which is scheduled later this month. The fighter from Venice, California is expected to sign a full-time professional wrestling contract with the company as per the report of ESPN's Tim Fiorvanti which was later confirmed by Triple H on USA Today

According to The Game, Rousey will make regular appearances once she is done filming an movie.

With that being taken into consideration, WWE should venture on prepping up Rousey to play the Stone Cold role to have a long and fruitful career with the company.

In order to maximize Rousey's potential, WWE should put her in a massive role by creating a traction between her and the authoritative figure of Stephanie wherein she'd continuously interrupt her speeches and do a Stunner-like finishing manoeuvre.

This makes so much sense most especially since the possible match has been built from the ground up since WrestleMania 31 that saw The Rock and Rousey going eyeball-to-eyeball with the husband and wife duo of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

A possible mixed tag-team match between the tandem of Triple H and Stephanie against Ronda and the partner of her choice - or we might as well make a prediction by saying The Rock, would not only be beneficial for Rousey but also for Stephanie as it would create excitement that will continue to give popularity to the women's revolution.

In addition, utilizing Rousey as much as possible would not only give the much-needed X-factor to the women's division but also breed millions of supporters that would generate merchandise and sold-out ticket sales - which in all likelihood is good for business.

With franchise player John Cena turning 41 later this April, the WWE will need a new face and who better to take that spot than 'Rowdy' Ronda Rousey? Ronda is a popular figure who connects well with the WWE Universe. Giving her a prominent push would only help the company in the long run and the upper echelon of the WWE must plan engaging storylines to bring out her best.
