• Former WWE Champion Thinks Ronda Rousey Is Going To Dominate In WWE
During a recent interview with MMA Junkie, below is what former WWE Champion Jinder Mahal said about former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey signing with WWE:
“That speaks volumes for her. I know she’s a big wrestling fan growing up, and her name comes from ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper. She’s a wrestling fan, and I know she has a passion for the business, which is sometimes the hardest thing, because sometimes people come from the outside and they don’t have the passion for it.
It’s just a one-time deal – oh, WrestleMania – and it’s big paycheck. That’s awesome that she’s signed fulltime. Just like she dominated the UFC, she’s going to dominate pro wrestling.”
