You've got to remember that Rousey lost twice in her entire career, unfortunately that is all people seem to remember, she was great. A bad team, the worst coach in MMA (I don't think this can be argued) and way too many outside commitments, and the perfect challenger with the perfect style in Holly Holm. That's what it took to dethrone Rousey.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. was ESPN's fighter of the year three years in a row, no MMA fighter had ever won it until Rousey did. The award might be meaningless but Rousey winning it over Floyd was a huge statement. No boxer has ever won it since, it has always gone to MMA athletes for the last three years. ESPN did not want to cover MMA. Rousey made them start to cover it. Shows like First Take debated topics around Rousey. People forget or weren't fans of the sport at the time before Rousey burst onto the scene. Her role is critically undersold by people because of how she left.

While fighting in the UFC, Rousey only had 1 PPV sell under 500k and that was due to it being a quick turnaround, 2 months after she sold 1 million against Tate in the rematch. She had three PPVs sell 1 million buys.
Yeah I've been a fan for a good while for a variety of reasons. She's very pretty, dominant and looks like a killer. What more can you ask for?

And she represented America in the Olympics and got them a medal.

Here is the problem that WWE will have with Rousey.

Rousey cannot act. She sucks. If they give her a script she'll fail on the microphone. If you hand her a microphone and give her points to hit than you'll see a woman who can cut a better promo than nearly the entire roster.

Rousey is a gem on the microphone. Especially the stuff with Tate leading into both their fights (top 5 MMA feud ever, btw). Everyone is worried about her wrestling ability. That's not the problem. Her judo will get her through a match just fine and it's not like she'll work with the bottom of the roster, she'll get the top talent.

Give Rousey a script and get ready for the worst promo you'll hear all year.

Yeah I remember some of that stuff. Hopefully (and it's likely false hope), they'll realize that they need her more than she needs them and will let her be herself a bit more.

I was factoring in Carano's movie career as part of her mainstream appeal. But gauging their appeal at the box office solely as MMA fighters, then yeah.

I'm looking forward to this Women's Rumble Match which I'm sure all the female wrestlers are excited about, only for Philadelphia to chant "Ronda Rousey" the entire match and be disappointed when she isn't in it.

According to some of the dirt sheets Rousey is presenting filming a movie that will not finish until February. They are saying that like with the Rock, movie producers are reluctant to have their stars fighting in the WWE while filming is happening.

I guess there is a chance that she could finish early and maybe they have put that out there so it will be a huge surprise if she does show up. Also HHH said last week that it was news to him about Rousey signing with the WWE. He has walked that back since, but that it is no guarantee that she will appear at the Rumble. For me it's a wait and see situation and honestly I would rather be surprised.
