SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
UFC mega-star Ronda Rousey says she is determined to wrestle for WWE at some point in her career. It’s just a matter of when and whether she can work around her UFC commitments.
“After getting a taste of it I’m definitely going to find a way to get back in there,” Rousey told Fox Sports Australia promoting her UFC 193 fight on November 14 in Melbourne.
“I don’t know how or when but I don’t think any true wrestling fans would want to know anyway. They’d want to be surprised. I’ve got to get back in there somehow.”
Footage of Rousey’s WrestleMania 31 appearance with The Rock still gets one of the biggest reactions when WWE runs the video at live events.
Rousey said she will also be leaning on Rock for movie advice as she tries become a mega-star in Hollywood.
“It’s a huge compliment,” she said of being compared to The Rock. “He definitely provides a model that I can follow, both him and Gina Carano have provided really good examples I can pull from to do my own play on a movie career.
“It’s really helpful to have someone like him to show you can come from an entirely different industry and still succeed in Hollywood. I’m trying my best to do the same.”
