Ronda Rousey is back in the headlines, and it’s not because of MMA.

The former UFC women’s bantamweight champion appears to have found a new home in professional wrestling.

The first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble just concluded in Philadelphia, and Rousey was all too happy to crash the party. Immediately following the 30-woman event, Rousey made her way to the ring to confront Women’s Royal Rumble Match winner Asuka, SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte and Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss.

Rousey, who was wearing the jacket of her namesake WWE Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, then pointed to the WrestleMania sign in the rafters.

According to ESPN.com, Rousey has reportedly joined the WWE to be a full-time Superstar.

“This is my life now. First priority on my timeline for the next several years. This is not a smash-and-grab; this is not a publicity stunt,” it said on ESPN.com. “When I first met with Triple H, I told him, ‘There are other things I can do with my time that’ll make way more money, but I won’t enjoy nearly as much.'”
