Ronda Rousey finalizing details of move to WWE, report says

Per two sources close to the USA Today's Martin Rogers, Ronda Rousey is "finalizing" a deal with the WWE, and the USA Today calls a deal between both sides "imminent". Shayna Baszler gave up mixed-martial arts in favour of pro-wrestling, and is now signed to the WWE after finishing second in the company's women-only Mae Young Classic tournament earlier this year.

The mixed martial arts star has always been rumored to make the move to professional wrestling after her UFC career seemingly ended when she was knocked out by Amanda Nunes inside 48 seconds in December 2016.

Baszler began her MMA career in 2003 and has competed in a total of 26 fights with a record of 15-11.

There are also rumors that she will join her friends and fellow Four Horsewomen Ronda Rousey, Marina Sharif, and Jessamyn Duke to take on the Four Horsewomen of WWE in Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, and Bayley at WrestleMania 34.

The former UFC women's bantamweight champion is nearing a deal to make several appearances for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) with the expectation that she would perform on some of the company's biggest shows of the year.

Steam will no longer support bitcoin due to "high fees and volatility"
The amount it can change has been increasing recently to a point where it can be significantly different. This is bad enough when Bitcoin's value is high, but it becomes much worse when the value drops.

"I wouldn't want to see it", White said last week. She has got money ... and all that stuff.

A transition to professional wrestling wouldn't be surprising for Rousey. "I don't want to see it happen".

Such certainty makes this an opportunistic time to evaluate what Rousey brought to mixed martial arts during her frenetic and remarkable reign. Ahead of her defeat to Holly Holm in Australia in 2015 and coming off six straight UFC victories, she was one of the hottest commodities in sports, in high demand for photo shoots, endorsements and movies. Now, it's quite possible that didn't directly factor in Rousey much, as this was about lower-tier broadcast fights rather than the better PPV fights she would have likely been in, but there was still maybe the idea of her showing up on some broadcast properties from time to time.

The level of intrigue with Rousey has actually increased since she started losing. No one truly knew what she was feeling in the build-up to Nunes, or since, as she blanked the kind of media commitments that are demanded of all other fighters.
