Ronda Rousey is arguably the most popular female superstar in the history of combat sports, having achieved tremendous success with both UFC and WWE. She also won an Olympic medal in 2008 Summer Olympics, which has made her one of the most successful athletes.
Ronda Rousey left WWE on a hiatus after a stellar year with the company, which ended with her featuring in the main event of WrestleMania 35. This marked the first occasion of women closing out the show, and her performance was lauded.
Rousey’s killer persona was a massive hit with the audiences, and it could transform to a TV show soon. Disney is coming up with its much-anticipated streaming service, Disney+, and it is set to feature a show with She-Hulk. According to We Got This Covered, Rousey is currently being viewed as a potential option for the lead character.
Disney is planning on creating several original programming for the new streaming service and has already announced quite a few Marvel and Star Wars content. With the trend of powerful female superheroes nowadays, Disney would be interested in making She-Hulk a major deal.
Rousey’s popularity will help to sell the show to greater audiences and she is a perfect fit to play the destructive character. She was called ‘Rowdy’ in UFC, while WWE gave her the tag of ‘Baddest Woman on the Planet’. A person with those nicknames is surely a top contender for a character, who loves to destroy things.
There is still no clue on when Rousey will return to WWE, as she was reportedly looking to start a family. WWE fans were denied a potentially show-stealing 1-on-1 match between Ronda and Becky Lynch, and it could happen someday.
Until then, Rousey will look to join the likes of John Cena and The Rock, and try to make a name for herself in the showbiz.
