- Former UFC champion Ronda Rousey will make her WWE debut at Wrestlemania 34
- She will team up with former Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle and take on a team of Stephanie McMahon and Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque
Former UFC woman champion Ronda Rousey is ‘genuinely excited for the future’ after officially making the switch from the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) to the WWE earlier this year.
WWE confirmed that Rousey will compete at the Wrestlemania 35.
The former UFC champion will make her ring debut at WWE’s premier event WrestleMania 34 on 2018 after recently signing a contract on the company’s flagship show Monday Night Raw.
She will team up with former Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle and take on a team of Stephanie McMahon and Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque, who are WWE’s chief brand officer and executive vice-president of talent and creative respectively.
The former UFC fighter revealed that it was a different feeling walking out to the ring in the WWE compared to the octagon.
“The most fun part is not knowing what’s going to happen and to turn up to events without that pit of dread in my stomach,” Rousey told Sky Sports.
“Instead there’s a tingle of excitement and that’s a big change for me. I don’t normally walk into arenas smiling and it’s really weird but it’s a great experience.
“I’m genuinely excited for the future and I’m really looking forward to what might happen,” she explained.
