When Bully Ray asked her what will happen when she shows up to the arena and finds out she is working with Rousey, Banks responded, "It's like I do every single week, I'll do my job".
"According to Wrestling Observer, WWE plans to "heavily push women" now that Rousey is on board because she's "the company's biggest mainstream star".
The former UFC champion appeared at the 2018 Royal Rumble, but she didn't compete in the women's battle royal. Herein lies the importance of Rousey's sojourn to pro wrestling: Rousey is in no position to return to the UFC as her cloak of invincibility had been torn into shreds and another jarring defeat might be fatal.
Sunday's event was a watershed moment, the first Royal Rumble to include women.
Rousey adopted the "Rowdy" nickname from WWE Hall of Famer "Rowdy" Roddy Piper.

Ronda Rousey has officially arrived in the WWE to start off a new phase in her career, one that she insists is "not a gimmick" and will be the primary focus of the next several years of her life. She believes that newly minted WWE superstar Ronda Rousey has also been the victim of a weight cut gone wrong. Rousey told TMZ that she would not return from Colombia until February and ruled out a surprise appearance at the Royal Rumble. "It's one thing to show up one night".
Rousey could lead her Horsewomen against a WWE faction at WrestleMania on April 8.
"Ronda Rousey should go out there and just smash everybody".
Ronda is a newlywed, and she tied the knot with fellow UFC fighter Travis Browne in a laid-back ceremony in Hawaii last August.
