Exclusive: Amanda Nunes Would Film WWE Vignettes With Ronda Rousey Opponents, Says Dan Lambert

Ronda Rousey is having an amazing run as a WWE Superstar, but don't be surprised if you see familiar foes pop back up from her UFC world.

Rousey's losses have been an easy go-to for her WWE opponent, who can reference them any time they're short on material. Many have suggested that her opponents should go the extra mile and train with the likes of Holly Holm or Amanda Nunes -- women who have famously knocked Rousey out -- for the sake of a story line.

When American Top Team owner Dan Lambert spoke to Fightful.com's James Lynch for a recent interview, he was keen on the idea.

"You'd be surprised how many people in the gym watch pro wrestling and say 'I'd love to do that! That looks like so much fun.' -- absolutely," said Lambert.

It's worth noting that a foe of Rousey's that she never ended up facing in Cris Cyborg has been trying to leverage the WWE against the UFC without any real interest from the former. Fightful was told earlier this year that the move drew the frustration of WWE.

Kayla Harrison is another woman who has much in common with Rousey -- Olympic medalist turned MMA star -- and Lambert sees potential success in the pro wrestling world for her as well. But first, it's a million dollar PFL tournament that has her attention.

"I can't think of anything I don't think Kayla would do good at. She's got a lot of charisma, she's got a great personality. She's a beast physically. I think she would take well to anything or any situation you put her in. I think she's going to win that tournament. I saw they added Sarah Kaufman to that tournament. I would much rather see her go in with some stiffer competition because it'll show how good she is this quick. Whether it's judo or MMA or pro wrestling or acting, she could do about anything. She's a ball of energy. If I have anything to say about it, she'll be a heel. Screw the babyfaces. That's the culture of our gym. They work hard and bust balls," said Lambert.
