Looks like the Rowdy One wants some more WWE. Rousey joined the WWE in January, and said there was a “set timeline” to her commitment because she intends to start a family. Now she’s considering extending her WWE career.
“We had a set timeline set, and now we aren’t so sure about it because I love it so much,” she said. “I guess that’s the best thing that could’ve happened, that I would love it so much it would be so hard to stop. I can see why people have a hard time leaving this industry because it’s such joy to be a part of every day.”
Rousey is also promoting preorders of “WWE 2K19” this week, which will be her first appearance as a wrestler in the popular video game franchise.
“My [wrestling] move set is kind of still evolving and taking shape, so I’d be really interested in to see what they actually come up with [in 2K19],” Rousey said. “There’s a bunch of stuff I haven’t even been able to show yet, that I’ve been keeping in my back pocket.”
During the height of her mixed martial arts career, Rousey used to joke that busy weeks like this were like juggling on a unicycle.
Life as a pro wrestler might be just as busy, but it’s a lot more fun, she said.

For Ronda coming from an actual fighting background in MMA, this is a cakewalk. She couldn’t act, and didn’t want to fight for real, so naturally the WWE is a perfect fit for her.
