Ronda Rousey appeared on Ellen this morning to discuss her transition from the UFC to pro wrestling.

Throwing things around and letting out a furious scream, it was made abundantly clear her former best friend and current Raw women's champion was in trouble.

"No one demanded a written resignation from me for judo and I don't really think the same thing is necessary for fighting". Kudos to the WWE for doing that, despite the absences of Lesnar and Rousey.

Just for reference sake, Rousey last competed in the Olympics in 2008 before transitioning to her career in mixed martial arts.

Rousey suffered back-to-back knockout losses in her last two fights with the UFC and Dana White has said repeatedly that he didn't expect her to ever return again.

At UFC 193 in November 2015, Rousey was upset by Holly Holm, losing via second-round TKO and surrendering her title. Rousey will team with fellow Olympic medalist Kurt Angle in a tag team match against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

Roman Reigns aired his frustrations concerning his WrestleMania opponent Brock Lesnar Monday on Raw to WWE Chairman and CEO, Vince McMahon.

There is no word yet on what the main event of WrestleMania 34 will be, but a good bet is that Ronda Rousey will be involved in one of the biggest WWE matches on the show.

"I'm nervous, but it's not like Olympics nervous", Rousey said.

"I'm extremely excited", Rousey said about debuting in WWE. "So when I got slapped across the face [by Stephanie McMahon on RAW], that was a real slap, there's no real way to fake that".

Do you think Ronda Rousey will ever entertain another fight in the UFC or is her career finished?
