DDP Talks Ronda Rousey To WWE Rumors

DDP Predicts Ronda Rousey In WWE Will Be As Big As Mike Tyson In WWE In 1998

Ahead of this Sunday’s WWE Royal Rumble 2018 pay-per-view, TMZ Sports caught up with WWE Hall Of Famer Diamond Dallas Page (DDP) to get his take regarding the rumors of Ronda Rousey possibly coming to WWE.

DDP went on to compare “Rowdy” Ronda to another former combat sports star who set the pro wrestling world on fire, “Iron” Mike Tyson.

“Rousey will get that same kind of attention like when [Mike] Tyson came in, and they did a thing with Steve [Austin] and Shawn Michaels, which was money,” Page said. “It really helped balance the [Monday Night] War, and eventually gave [WWE] the edge.”

Dallas Page also spoke about how a match between Rousey and Charlotte Flair reminds him of his first battles with Bill Goldberg in WCW.

“I think Rousey coming in is pure money and I think that Charlotte is so good at what she does,” Page replied. “My first match with Bill Goldberg, it was for the World Title in 1998, Bill had only been wrestling a year. Well, we stole the show. Because I was going to make Bill look as good as he was, and he was great. He had that incredible charisma, personality, and that ‘it’ factor, Rousey has that same thing. I think if it’s built like that, it could be really great.”
