Even Ronda Rousey is a Roman Reigns fangirl

And, based on recent Twitter activity, the big dog of The Shield may heart her right back.

While the smark community debates whether Dean Ambrose or Seth Rollins is the man, it's pretty clear that WWE brass and large swaths of the WWE Universe see something pretty special in Roman Reigns.

Is it the chiseled jaw?  The Barry White bass?  The unique combination of power and athleticism he brings to the ring? The totes adorbs tea parties with his daughter?

In reality, it's probably all of those as part of a mix that provides a indescribabl charismatic presence known as "It".

And it doesn't just effect us average joe and jill on the street fans.  It even grabs super-fans, like UFC champion Ronda Rousey.

In the case of "Rowdy" and Roman, it just might be a mutual admiration, too.

It started when Reigns re-tweeted this musing from wrestling writer and podcaster Bret Ciminello:

Causing Rousey to, basically, MARK THE $#&% OUT:

A fact that she even cops to:

The champ, with her "Four Horsewomen" stable of fighters and stated fantasy of doing some wrestling work if here schedule ever allowed it, would look pretty badass in black tactical gear.  But that's probably not going to happen.

Still, it's testament to the reach and appeal of the trio of young stars WWE has in Ambrose, Reigns and Rollins that they can capture the attention of all kinds of fans, and drive the pro wrestling conversation when there are big stories about guys like John Cena, Daniel Bryan and CM Punk still out there.

Believe in The Shield.

Ronda Rousey does.
