On the heels of this historic night, Stephanie McMahon recently spoke to TMZ Sports about the possibility of women Superstars someday main-eventing Wrestlemania.

Rousey is one of the biggest stars that UFC have and is a transcendental figure who has already started moving into film work. She’s also a lifelong WWE fan and had previously spoken about someday working with WWE. Stephanie didn’t say anything specific when asked about signing Rousey but just replied that WWE would definitely try. When asked about women main-eventing Wrestlemania someday, she said:

“That would be the goal, to have the women main-event at WrestleMania at some point in time whether that's five years from now, 10 years from now”

With the era of women’s wrestling well and truly on its way, signing Ronda Rousey and adding it to the most talented women’s division in the history of pro wrestling could mean big business. Rousey would definitely help the women of WWE to break through the next glass ceiling.
