Rousey made a huge splash in WWE when she swapped the UFC octagon for the famous 'squared circle' in January 2018.

The former UFC champion, who has said she won't return to MMA, had a spell for WWE lasted until April 2019, when she was part of the first ever women's match to headline WrestleMania, where she lost to Becky Lynch, making her final appearance at 'Mania' 35.

The 34-year-old chose to walk away from competing, after a long career from her days in the Olympics as a judoka until her time as WWE Raw Women's champion, in order to start a family with husband Travis Browne.

Rousey and Browne are yet to have any children but the Beijing 2008 Olympic bronze medalist had said that he's interested in working with new Raw Women's champion Rhea Ripley.

"I would love to work with Rhea Ripley. I feel like I would be able to do some really good stuff with her," Rousey told TableTalk.

"When I work with somebody, I think 'what is that I can do only with them and they could do only with me?'

"I try to think of one thing that we could do that's entirely unique to our match, that only we could do.

"There's a lot of things like that for me and Rhea, but Bianca [Belair], too, they're both really strong chicks.

"I'm so glad there are so many new faces and so much new blood coming into the division as well."

Ripley won her first title on the main roster, having only recently been called up from the company's developmental brand NXT, at WrestleMania 37 last week.

The Australian superstar beat Asuka on night two, although it was Bianca Belair's victory the previous night which made history.

Belair's win for the SmackDown title over Sasha Banks was the first time two African American wrestlers had fought for a title at Mania, and the first time two African American women had main evented the show.

Rousey's return was further teased by WWE president Nick Khan, who earned a whopping $13 million for his first year with the company.

Speaking recently, Khan said, "Ronda is going to be coming back at a certain point in time.

"Becky Lynch, she just had her first baby, she will be coming back at a certain point in time in the not too distant future."

Both women will have some fresh challenges to face if and when they do return, although don't rule out the former baddest woman on the planet and the man meeting in a WWE ring again.
