FOX Reportedly Wants Ronda Rousey on SmackDown

FOX Reportedly Wants Ronda Rousey on SmackDown
As noted via WrestlingAttitude.Com, FOX reportedly wants SmackDown to have more of a sports direction and feature less comedy to fit in with their other sports programming.

According to Justin LaBar, FOX wants to have Ronda Rousey on the SmackDown roster when SmackDown Live! moves to the network. FOX feels that Rousey's MMA background, popularity and credibility as an athlete will be a major selling point to promote the show.

The addition of Rousey to SmackDown Live is expected to make her a main player in their efforts to do cross-promotional campaigns between WWE and FOX's other programs.

Rousey is the current RAW Women's Champion. While WWE usually executes brand trades shortly after WrestleMania, it will be interesting to see if they hold off until SmackDown moves to FOX in October of 2019.
