Ronda Rousey to sign WWE contract at Elimination Chamber and join Monday Night RAW brand

WWE have confirmed that Ronda Rousey will be at the Elimination Chamber later this month.

The UFC legend made a stunning wrestling debut at January's Royal Rumble event.

Following Asuka's triumph in the first-ever women's Rumble, the iconic mixed martial artist Rousey made her unexpected bow.

She marched straight to the ring to confront the winner, SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte and Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss.

And then without saying a word to any of them, she pointed right at the huge WrestleMania sign hanging from the ceiling to signal her intention to fight at the Grandest Stage of them All.

As SunSport reported after the event, Rousey has agreed a full-time deal to become the latest superstar to join the company.

She told ESPN afterwards: "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.

"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.'"

Now she will appear at the company's next pay-per-view to officially put pen to paper on Sunday February 25.

But contact signings rarely go to plan in WWE, and excitement is now mounting to see what fireworks will explode when she next steps foot in the ring.
