Backstage News on Why Ronda Rousey Won’t Be Appearing for WWE at SummerSlam

– Regarding WWE wanting UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey to appear at this year’s SummerSlam, word came out this week that it won’t be happening.

UFC President Dana White doesn’t want any UFC fighters appearing on WWE programming.

On a related note, apparently Rousey wanted to get her whole “Four Horsewomen” group on WWE TV but WWE only wanted her.

    Who cares about Rhonda Rousey I could not care less about Rhonda Rousey and what she is doing with her career
    who cares I dont

  • Will Henderson

    Dana views WWE as it biggest competition, nevermind the fact that UFC is MMA (with some armature wrestling moves and submission holds done) and WWE is pro wrestling. but both are the biggest companies in all of sports-entertainment. even if UFC is legit fighting and viewed as a sport while WWE is viewed as a “fake” sport in the eyes of those who don’t follow pro wrestling.

  • Thayer

    This isn’t shocking at all. Dana doesn’t wanna be associated with WWE so he won’t allow fighters under contract to appear on tv.

  • Solid

    Because you have your “legit” fighters appearing on a “fake” wrestling show. You don’t want to devalue or lower your product to the WWE level if you know what I mean. I don’t blame Dana.

  • Jorge Ruvalcaba

    I get the whole I don’t want my fighters working for someone else/possibly getting hurt but if they just attend and get a shout out I don’t see how that could be an issue.
