Rousey also appeared at WWE's Mae Young Classic.

FORMER UFC champion Ronda Rousey announced she is joining the WWE by making a dramatic appearance at the pay-per-view Royal Rumble.

The UFC superstar officially signed a deal with the WWE on Sunday and even made a surprise debut at the Royal Rumble in Philadelphia.

Following her Royal Rumble appearance last night, there is already speculation that Rousey will be involved in a mixed tag-team match against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon at WrestleMania 34. "This is not a smash-and-grab; this is not a publicity stunt", Rousey later told ESPN. After Japanese star Asuka was declared victorious in the match, WWE champions Alexa Bliss and Charlotte Flair started to celebrate with the new champion. Rousey also pointed to the WrestleMania banner above the ring at the event's conclusion. It's another be a WWE superstar.

Nikki hadn't competed since WrestleMania, but she was the final person eliminated after entering at No. 27.

Jason Powell, editor of ProWrestling, said it'll still be tough to get UFC fans to follow her to WWE. She became the UFC's first female champion in 2012 and made six defenses of the women's bantamweight belt, all inside the distance and all but one inside the first round.

"The jacket Ronda Rousey is wearing at the WWE Royal Rumble was "Rowdy" Roddy Piper's jacket". After two back-to-back losses, Rousey quit MMA with a 12-2 record, but has made no secret of her passion for breaking into wrestling. After The Rock pulled her from the crowd into the ring, she demonstrated a few moves before tossing both Triple H and Stephanie McMahon out of the ring to the floor.

Prior to losses to Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes at UFC 193 and UFC 207, respectively, the Olympic bronze medal-winning judoka was a ideal 12-0 as a professional fighter.

In an interview with ESPN, Rousey said she has signed with WWE to be a full-time performer.

Asuka was a worthy victor, and it made sense to continue building her up as an unstoppable force all the way through WrestleMania. UFC President Dana White said Rousey will never fight again for the company.
