Possibly lost in the wild scene was that Rousey was wearing Rowdy Roddy Piper's jacket after it was given to her by his son, as Shelburne reported .
That started speculation about Rousey possibly having a WWE role in the future, and it intensified when her UFC career began to go south.
"Rowdy" resurfaced on the WWE radar when her friend and fellow Four Horsewomen member Shayna Baszler entered the Mae Young Classic.
Despite Rousey losing her unblemished record in the UFC, she is still a massive crossover star, and bringing her in is a major coup for WWE.
Regardless of how WWE chooses to utilize her, she promises to be a major box office draw, and her mere presence will generate a ton of mainstream buzz for the company.
