Trailblazing UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has agreed to terms with WWE to perform for the company as a full-time professional wrestler.

Rousey made a surprise appearance at the WWE's Royal Rumble pay-per-view in Philadelphia on Sunday night. After the conclusion of the first-ever women's Royal Rumble match, Rousey emerged and shocked the crowd.

"This is my life now. First priority on my timeline for the next several years. This is not a smash-and-grab; this is not a publicity stunt," Rousey told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne of her decision to join WWE. "When I first met with Triple H, I told him, 'There are other things I can do with my time that'll make way more money, but I won't enjoy nearly as much.'"

All those actors in the WWE are going to be in big trouble when they come up against a real fighter. She's going to have to be very careful to stay on script and not hurt anybody.

All she ever had was an armbar. She lost big when the "real fighters" stepped up to the plate. First to Holmes a boxer/kickboxer then to Nunes, a boxer with a Brazilian ju jitsu black belt.

But Rousey's judo and her arm bar along with her grumpy attitude should serve her well In the WWE. I might even watch a bout or two just to see the Rousey show continue.
