WWE stars supporting Ronda Rousey ahead of UFC 190 fight


The UFC is in Brazil for its latest pay-per-view, UFC 190, headlined by one of the top stars in combat sports, Ronda Rousey (who has dedicated her performance to the late Roddy Piper). That's the same Rousey who appeared at WrestleMania 31 earlier this year to throw Triple H around and set up a future match with Stephanie McMahon.

Assuming a deal can be worked out at some point.

And while Dana White has been busy today calling out pro wrestling as fake (and getting hammered for it), WWE stars have been showing their support for Rousey, including Triple H and Stephanie:

Rousey's meteoric rise to superstardom led to a backstage pass at SummerSlam last year where she rubbed elbows with McMahon (who she assisted in taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge), at least partially leading to what we're seeing in the Divas division today. Perhaps one day she'll come back to WWE and help the revolution along herself.

In the meantime, she clearly has the full support of the company.
