Ronda Rousey's transition to WWE close to being finalized

Ronday Rousey looks set to join WWE
And it seems like the first ever female UFC Champion will embark on a different adventure as two people close to her told USA TODAY that she's finalising a switch to WWE.
WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon, MMA fighter Ronda Rousey and WWE Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative Paul "Triple H" Levesque appear on the red carpet of the WWEMae Young Classic on September 12, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
However, a stunning loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November 2015 punctured her aura of invincibility, and after taking more than a year to recover and attend to a burgeoning acting career, Rousey was knocked out in just 48 seconds by Amanda Nunes at UFC 207. "There have been rumours about the UFC star making the transition to the squared circle, and appearances like the one she had in September, when she got into a stare down with Charlotte Flair and challenged her, saying, 'You name the time, you name the place, ' have fanned the flames about a possible move". "I wouldn't want it to happen", White said. She's got enough money and all of that stuff.
"I'm excited to have the conversation with her and see where it goes".
Sources close to the situation confirmed on Wednesday that Rousey has engaged in numerous conversations with WWE about joining the promotion but no contracts have been signed at this time.
There's no doubt that Vince McMahon is always interested in adding high-profile athletes to work with the WWE, be it a one-off appearance or something more. She has appeared in several movies such as "Entourage", "Furious 7" and "The Expendables 3".
Ronda Rousey first came into the spotlight when she won the Bronze Medal in Judo at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. While it's unknown what Baszler's intentions are upon arrival at NXT, one has to wonder if revenge is on her mind for losing to Kairi Sane in the finals. However, it could be an indirect loss in terms of building up WWE, one of their biggest competitors (especially with both organizations' media rights coming up soon).
Rousey's ties to the WWE are numerous and speculation has been mounting that her apparently imminent jump to the 'E will lead to a marquee matchup at the upcoming WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans next April.
