Rousey, WWE nearby deal
For months now, there has been speak of Rhonda Rousey signing with WWE.
It appears that a initial womanlike star in UFC story is closer than ever to signing a WWE deal, and she has been operative out during a WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Fla.
There had been speak months ago of a WWE Four Horsewomen (Charlotte, Sasha Bank, Becky Lynch and Bayley) contra Rousey’s Four Horsewomen (Marina Shafir, Shayna Baszler and Jessamyn Duke are a others) compare during Survivor array and afterwards successive singles compare between Rousey and Charlotte and WrestleMania.
What isn’t famous is if Rousey will have only one compare or if she will be used along a lines of how WWE uses Brock Lesnar.
I rarely doubt that she will strike a highway for highway shows. Baszler is already underneath a WWE contract, and demeanour for all 4 of Rousey’s Four Horsewomen to pointer as well.
Bliss, Banks make history
Speaking of women’s wrestling, Alexa Bliss and Sasha Banks done story progressing this week as they became a initial women to ever combat a veteran wrestling compare in a United Arab Emirates. The compare took place in Abu Dhabi.

205 Live residence shows
In a extraordinary pierce that was announced progressing this week, WWE will take 205 Live on a highway for residence shows starting subsequent month. It is an engaging pierce by WWE, and we am extraordinary to see how a shows indeed draw.
On this date …
In 1972, Ric Flair done his veteran wrestling debut.
The compare took place on an AWA label and he wrestled George “Scrap Iron” Gadaski to a 10-minute draw.
This week’s question: Why did WWE not put Starrcade on a WWE Network? Jason Bozicevich, a Cal U grad vital in Hagerstown, Md.
The Starrcade eventuality that Jason asked about was a residence uncover in Greensboro, N.C., a Saturday after Thanksgiving. Starrcade was a NWA’s “WrestleMania” from 1983 until a graduation developed into WCW.
It was afterwards a WCW tack until a association folded in 2001.
The new chronicle was a brainchild of WWE representative and former NWA/WCW star Michael “P.S.” Hayes. The suspicion was to give fans in that segment a possibility to relive their excellence days while still saying today’s WWE product.
I consider there were dual categorical reasons because WWE did not publish a event.
First, WWE has been in cost-cutting mode for several months now and while WWE annals each uncover it does, it would have cost a lot of income to film a uncover regulating WWE”s categorical HD cameras, as good as move a lighting used for TV, etc.
The other reason is that we am not so certain that a WWE higher-ups suspicion a eventuality would be a success that it incited out to be.
I entirely design a uncover to take place again subsequent year and we would be astounded if it is not shown on a network.
