Add Randy Orton to the list of WWE Superstars who have shared their two cents regarding former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey signing with WWE.
“The Viper” was asked about Rousey joining the WWE Universe during a recent interview with TMZ Sports.
“I don’t know anything about Rousey, she’s on RAW and I’m on SmackDown,” said Orton. “I’m going to work, I’m sorry. I’ve never met her. I don’t watch RAW, I’m a SmackDown guy.”
Orton was then asked if he felt Rousey has the potential to be on the Mount Rushmore of pro wrestling, or if he has no interest in the subject at all.
“It’s not that I don’t have any interest in it, I don’t know her,” Orton replied. “Based on what she’s accomplished, I would say she has a good chance at being one of the top female wrestlers, eventually, but she’s got a long way to go.”
Regarding whether or not Rousey has the potential to be a top talent in WWE, such as Hulk Hogan, he answered, “There’s no way to tell but we will find out from that day [Elimination Chamber] on forward.”
