Former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey made her WWE debut this past weekend at the 2018 WWE Royal Rumble event.
UFC President Dana White had supported Rousey during a surprise appearance at WWE Wrestlemania 31 and he still supports the MMA fighter turned pro wrestler now.
“I’m very happy for her,” said White to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “She loves pro wrestling and has always been a big fan so I know how much his means to her. She keeps accomplishing everything she’s ever wanted.”
One of Rousey’s biggest rivals in MMA is UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino, although the two never met in an MMA fight.
Despite the longtime rivalry between the two, one thing Cyborg is confident in is that Rousey is going to be happy in the WWE.
“I believe that she will be happy in WWE, and it’s completely different from the reality of MMA,” Cyborg told MMA Fighting. “For an example, wins and losses are decided before the shows.”
Rousey is expected to make her in ring debut at WWE Wrestlemania 34 this April, but nothing is set in stone as of this writing.
