WWE News: Rumor killer on Ronda Rousey's training footage
What's the story?
Ronda Rousey officially signed a contract with WWE last Sunday at Elimination Chamber. Reports of the former UFC Champion's training footage surfaced recently. But it looks like the reported footage is four years old.
In case you didn't know...
Ronda made her first WWE appearance back at WrestleMania 31 where she was part of an in-ring segment with Triple H, The Rock and Stephanie McMahon. The former UFC Champion was then rumoured to be heading to WWE for a number of years before her appearance at The Royal Rumble last month.
The build-up to her in-ring debut at WrestleMania has already begun after she appeared at Elimination Chamber on Sunday night and on Raw last night as all signs point towards Ronda teaming with Kurt Angle to take on Triple H and Stephanie McMahon at WrestleMania in less than six weeks time.
The heart of the matter
Ronda is expected to make her in-ring debut at WrestleMania in April, which means that she has spent a lot of time at the Performance Centre training ahead of the match. PWP Nation on Twitter has recently shared a video of Ronda showing off her skills in a boxing ring against NXT star and Four Horsewoman Shayna Baszler which has definitely got many fans hyped ahead of her debut.
It's a hard switch from UFC to WWE, but Ronda proved last night on Raw that she had the promo skills to build up the match and it seems that judging by the above video, she has the in-ring ability that is worthy of the biggest event of the year.
The video has been confirmed to be around four years old and was filmed back in 2014 when Rousey was surrounded by speculation of a possible switch to WWE. It, however, proves that the former UFC Champion will definitely be a force to be reckoned with in the wrestling ring.
Ronda will be part of WrestleMania and it is thought that Kurt Angle will be her partner as she takes on Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. There are just five episodes of Raw left until WrestleMania, so the buildup is expected to continue as the company travels down the Road to WrestleMania.
Ronda Rousey had an entire UFC Division created just for her, she is one of the baddest women on the planet and she has already turned a lot of attention to WWE after just three appearances. Ronda is a huge wrestling fan and it seems that this has allowed her to push herself into training in recent months so that she is now able to take on the WWE COO and his wife on the Grandest Stage of Them All.
