WWE is interested in booking Ronda Rousey and Eric Bischoff for the Stone Cold Podcast with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin on the WWE Network. Dave Meltzer reports in this week’s issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that both names have been batted around recently.
The interest in Rousey stems from the huge reactions she’s getting when WWE plays the WrestleMania 31 video at shows.
“Rousey has been getting a bigger reaction than anyone, even The Rock,” Meltzer states.
There has been some suggestion of Rousey doing an angle at Hell in a Cell to set something up for WrestleMania 32. However, with a UFC fight slated next month, it is unlikely that she’ll be involved at Hell in a Cell in any way. As for WrestleMania 32, she is scheduled to shoot a film in Indonesia around the date of show..
Booking her on the podcast at some point in the future shouldn’t be a problem. It isn’t like an interview would be that big of a deal to the UFC.
As for Bischoff, it appears likely at some point. He’s on good terms with WWE now and is one of the most interesting personalities of the last 20 years. Bischoff also has great chemistry with Austin, as demonstrated when they feuded on WWE television in 2003 and 2004.
