The first step in Ronda Rousey and the Four Horsewomen of wrestling may be clear.
Shayna “Queen of Spades” Baszler may be debuting soon if WWE’s recent promo is any indication.
The following video aired during NXT:
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer notes the promo is for Baszler.
Basaler lost to Kairi Sane in the finals of the Mae Young Classic:
According to the Wrestling Observer, a match is “set” for WrestleMania. That’s a change after original plans called for Rousey and Co. to show up at Survivor Series.
Rousey, Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir have all been training behind the scenes.
WWE posted an exclusive interview with former UFC champion Rousey, Duke and Shafir at Full Sail University following friend and fellow “Four Horsewomen” Baszler’s win over Mia Yim during the second-round of the Mae Young Classic.
In the video, the group is confronted by WWE “Four Horsewomen” members Bayley, Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair.
Baszler has already made a successful transition to the squared circle while the other three Horsewomen, including Rousey, have been rumored to follow suit.
Previously, an employee backstage in WWE told Fightful.com that Rousey has expressed interest in making a pro wrestling run and spoke with Triple H to set up her appearance at the Mae Young Classic tapings.
According to their sources, WWE has referred Rousey, Duke and Shafir — the fiancée of current NXT competitor Roderick Strong — to current 205 Live competitor Brian Kendrick’s wrestling school in Southern California. The company had previously referred former Total Divas star Eva Marie — who was officially released last month — to Kendrick.
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross, who called the Mae Young Classic, told TMZ on last month that Rousey’s transition to professional wrestling is “inevitable”.
“It’s just a matter of time before Ronda Rousey officially signs with Vince McMahon — so says WWElegend, Jim Ross, who says it’s a “match made in heaven,” Ross said. “Oh, she’s gonna be a big star,” the WWE Hall of Famer told us at LAX … “It’s inevitable. I see her in a WrestleMania someday. It’s too great an opportunity for her to pass up and WWE to pass up … it’s a match made in heaven.”
Rousey, a lifelong wrestling fan, has worked with the company in the past, including an in-ring segment with The Rock, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon at WrestleMania 31.
