Ronda Rousey Invited To Winston-Salem, NC Event
NC based wrestling promotion, AML Wrestling, has invited Ronda Rousey to their August 30, 2015 event in Winston-Salem, NC. They are currently waiting for her response.
“It’s no secret that Ronda Rousey is not only one of the biggest names in sports right now but also one of the biggest wrestling fans in the world. That’s why the AML Wrestling Team thought it would be fun to invite her to our August 30 event. I’m extremely excited about about the possibility of her attending our show and getting her honest feedback on the AML Wrestling product,” said AML Wrestling Founder & Owner Tracy Myers. “My partner, Brian Hawks, and I will be waiting for her response so we can arrange for her transportation to and from the airport." When asked where Rousey would be sitting at the event, Myers laughed and said: “Anywhere she wants!”
Ronda Rousey is an American mixed martial artist, judoka and actress. She is the first and current UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion, as well as the last Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion. She is undefeated in mixed martial arts, having won eleven of her twelve fights in the first round and nine by armbar. Rousey was the first U.S. woman to earn an Olympic medal in Judo at the Summer Olympics in Beijing in 2008.
Rousey is the consensus #1 pound-for-pound female MMA fighter in the world, according to MMARising, MMAWeekly, and other publications. She is ranked #1 at 135 pounds according to the Unified Women's MMA Rankings. Fight Matrix lists her as the #1 Current Women's MMA Bantamweight Fighter, the #1 Current Pound for Pound Women's MMA Fighter, and the #1 Women's MMA Fighter of all time.As of June 20, 2015, she is the #4 pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC.
Rousey's first feature film role was the 2014 film The Expendables 3. In 2015, she had roles in the films Furious 7 and Entourage.
Rousey’s love of professional wrestling is well documented. Her nickname was taken from the late WWE Hall Of Famer Rowdy Roddy Piper, whom she asked for permission. She, Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir have dubbed themselves "The Four Horsewomen,"
The Four Horsewomen were acknowledged on camera and commentary as such, in the front row at WWE's SummerSlam in August 2014. They also went backstage for that event, meeting Paul Heyman, among others. Rousey was interviewed by WWE.com that night; when asked if she, like Brock Lesnar, would cross over to wrestling, she replied "You never know."
At WrestleMania 31 in March 2015, they were seated in the front row. During an in-ring argument between The Rock and the Authority (Stephanie McMahon and Triple H), McMahon slapped the Rock and ordered him to leave "her ring." She taunted him, saying he would not hit a woman. He left, paused and walked over to Rousey to a loud ovation. He then helped her into the ring, and said that she would be happy to hit McMahon for him. After a few minutes of a staredown and more dialogue, the Rock attacked Triple H. When he stumbled toward Rousey, she hiptossed him out of the ring. McMahon tried to slap her, was blocked and Rousey grabbed her arm, teasing an armbar, before throwing her out of the ring. Rousey and the Rock celebrated in the ring, while the Authority retreated with the implication of revenge.
The segment was replayed and discussed throughout the next night's WWE Raw. Commentators hyped a tweet Rousey made earlier that day, in which she implied a return to WWE with "We're just gettin' started..."
