Stephanie McMahon has been ‘chomping at the bit for a long time to have Ronda Rousey as a part of WWE’

Stephanie McMahon was a guest on the debut episode of the Wrestling Compadres podcast and, naturally, Ronda Rousey’s name came up. Could we see “Rowdy” back in WWE someday?

"I would just say anything can happen in the WWE. I've been chomping at the bit for a long time to have Ronda as a part of WWE but she's got a few other things on her road map, I think. But I was really excited, actually, to be in the same company as Ronda. We were both just named in the top 30 most powerful women in sports by Ad Week. I'm just honored to be in that company and several other really significant female leaders in the sports industry and it really is a tremendous honor to be a part of that."

Rousey showed up as a surprise at WrestleMania 31, where she tossed Triple H before teasing out a physical confrontation with Stephanie. The idea at the time, according to various reports, was WWE wanted to do a match between the two at WrestleMania 32 (or some other time). That has yet to come to fruition, but it sure sounds like McMahon still wants it.

Even if Rousey was viciously knocked out in her last UFC fight and has mostly stayed out of the limelight since.

Are you still interested in the possibility?
