    Teammate Shayna Baszler is already competing for the WWE in a tournament for a contract right now, IIRC (competing in the try-out sense not the sport sense). Baszler trained under Josh Barnett but Rousey will supposedly be trained by Brian Kendrick.

    If she can somehow finesse a part-time contract like the one Brock Lesnar has she'll be in a really good spot. I don't know if she wants to be a wrestler 24/7 (rich people usually don't). I believe a few of her acting roles fizzled out lately so this would be a great option for her to keep making serious money. Obviously she is quite an athlete and the bar is pretty low for female wrestlers.

    A parody of Edmund as her manager encouraging her to do all the wrong things resulting in her losing would be the funniest shit.

    Good idea IMO. That move that she had in the UFC could win her a lot of matches in wrestling if the story tellers wanted it.
