Blind Item Revealed — WWE & Ronda Rousey

We don’t get a lot of wrestling scoops, but when we do (Goldberg etc) they’re usually on the money.

This A list athlete is close to signing a contract with the WWE to wrestle matches in the near future.

‘It should be great publicity for all parties,’ we’re told. ‘The WWE are cashing is on [name omitted]’s mainstream appeal.’

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our A list athlete?


Ronda Rousey

The Story: Ronda Rousey Signs With WWE

Popular Guesses: Paige VanZant / Conor McGregor / Ronda Rousey

The wrestling industry’s most reputable reporter, Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer, has called the securing of Ronda Rousey the WWE’s most high profile in years and claimed the main reason for the signing is due to the company hoping to get one of their on-screen characters, Stephanie McMahon, mainstream attention.

I thank Meltzer for confirming my blind item, but there’s more…

As I told you back in September, the signing is mainly because the WWE are hoping to “cash in” on Rousey’s considerable star power, but it isn’t just because they want to get one of their on-screen characters some mainstream attention (although I was told that is partially the reason), another reason is the WWE’s upcoming talks over television rights and the company’s desire to attract as much attention and buzz as possible going to the negotiating table with what I’m told is more than just one television network.

Rousey has reportedly signed a contract for multiple years and will be a full time performer, wrestling multiple matches (as I told you) and not just the one WrestleMania match like was expected.

  1. Can somebody with professional wrestling and fighting knowledge please inform me how big of a coup this is considered? I know Ronda is quite the name, dears, but I’ve no idea what this means for the WWE or anyone else involved.

  2. Been waiting for this to be revealed. Great blind. Mainstream attention definitely seems to be their main target. It sucks they’re still trying to get Steph over.
