Apart from her performances for the UFC and WWE, Ronda has also represented the U.S in various events. She won the Bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics along with many more.
According to the latest WWE News, Fox is pushing WWE in a more sports-oriented direction and for that it is making talent requests, to get the top competitors to SmackDown Live.
Wrestling Inc representative Justin LaBar reported that Fox is pushing to bring Ronda Rousey to SmackDown.
It wouldn’t even be the first time that Fox and Ronda would collaborate as Ronda has a history with Fox due to her MMA background.
After becoming one of the most famous mixed martial artists of all time, She joined WWE last April but now has joined the company full time.
Ronda didn’t take much time in making a mark, She instantly became a fan favorite due to her in-ring performances and was also crowned the Raw women’s champion in August.
Raw has always been the flagship program for WWE, WWE would have never even thought of moving someone as popular as Ronda to SmackDown a few years back, but after SmackDown went Live in 2016, and now with it moving to FOX the blue brand has become its own beast.
According to the latest WWE News, Fox will be paying WWE a reported $1 billion over a period of 5 years for the rights of SmackDown Live.
SmackDown will also move from Tuesday nights to Friday nights, Fox is going all out with the move and is also looking forward to getting the services of UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier to join WWE SmackDown Live as a commentator.
While Fox would love to have someone as popular and talented as Ronda Rousey in their roster, it would certainly complicate things for the women’s division in the Blue Brand.
Ronda is currently the Raw women’s champion and Becky Lynch is the current SmackDown women’s champion so in order for Ronda to move to SmackDown the women’s division would have to go through a lot of change. And then there is the question of Lynch and Ronda headlining Wrestlemania 35.
All in all however good it is for Fox to get someone like Ronda Rousey to SmackDown it would most likely stir the Women’s division a lot, but if it is get to someone as talented and popular as Ronda Rousey it should be worth it.
