Big Show says the women's division brought Ronda Rousey to WWE
In an interview with UPI, Big Show was asked about former UFC Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey joining WWE earlier this year. At WWE Royal Rumble, Rousey showed up to confront Asuka, Alexa Bliss,Charlotte Flair, and Stephanie McMahon after long established rumors she wanted to start a career in professional wrestling.
Big Show said it is great to see someone of Rousey's celebrity in WWE but he believes WWE attracted her with the opportunities for female wrestlers.
"As far as the brand the notoriety she brings to our industry, I think it's an incredible opportunity for WWE and WWE fans as well as Ronda Rousey fans. Now we are going to see her in an environment that will be able to really see Ronda showcase her athletic ability, her entertainment skills and also the presence that she has," said Big Show. "She's just going to be overwhelming. It's going to raise the bar a little bit in our women's division. Our women's division is the strongest it has ever been. It's so strong, it has actually attracted the talent like Ronda Rousey to want to come and be a part of it....I think it's absolutely amazing. I can't wait to see what she does in the ring," he continued.
Last week it was confirmed by Triple H that Rousey will be competing at Wrestlemania 34.
Fightful Wrestling will have live coverage and a recapping podcast for Rousey's match at Wrestlemania 34.
