Ronda Rousey made it into a hall of fame.
The International Sports Hall of Fame which is organized by Arnold Schwarzenegger is inducting former UFC Champion, current WWE wrestler, and Olympic Judoka Ronda Rousey. The induction event will be on March 3rd. Among the other inductees is UFC legend Bas Rutten.
Other wrestlers inducted in past years include Kurt Angle, Triple H, Bruno Sammartino, and Mark Henry. This will be the seventh year of inductions. Only two years of inductions have past without a wrestler in the class.
Rousey is best known for her record setting run in UFC as Bantamweight Champion but she is also a decorated Judoka. She has won international competitions, came in second in the World Championships, and earned bronze at the 2008 Olympics. She was the first American woman to win a medal in Judo. Her mother was a World Champion Judoka who trained Rousey for most of her life.
Rousey showed up in WWE after the 2018 Royal Rumble match. She had been the subject of rumors for months regarding her debut. She will appear at WWE Elimination Chamber on Sunday to sign her Raw contract.
