For whatever reasons, the internet wrestling community has long speculated that AJ Lee was pregnant. The speculation heated up even more once she shocked the world by retiring from WWE earlier this month. CM Punk was asked about that rumor during a convention this weekend, and he flat out denied that they were going to be having a baby. His focus right now is on training for his first UFC fight, so starting a family has to wait.

Ask any UFC fan, and they will more than likely have nothing but kind things to say about the legendary Georges St Pierre. After all, he was one of the biggest draws in MMA for a reason. He is now expressing interest in professional wrestling. GSP revealed to fans at a convention that he is definitely interested in making an appearance in WWE, something similar to what Ronda Rousey did at Wrestlemania. Management should be calling soon.

If you are one of those WWE fans that have been hoping that UFC clears Ronda Rousey so that she can finally work a match at Wrestlemania, then you might be out of luck. During a recent interview, Dana White flat out stated that Ronda has already done her last segment in professional wrestling. He understandably does not want to lose one of his biggest draws, especially since the company is lacking a bit in star power as of late.

An MMA reported stated through social media that Rampage Jackson lost his desire to do professional wrestling because of the way that TNA handled his career. In response, a representative from the company pointed out the special treatment that the former UFC star was given. The front office paid for a private jet, and they also provided accommodations to his entourage. It is also being said that Jackson was afraid of taking bumps.

When asked if he was open to a career in professional wrestling, Cain Velasquez said that it would be something that he might consider down the line. Right now, he is focused on his career in UFC. If Velasquez does choose to make the jump after retiring from MMA, the belief is that WWE would definitely be interested in someone with his level of name value. He has fought Brock Lesnar before, so that match would be a possibility.

When Ronda Rousey showed up at Summerslam, WWE knew that they wanted to put her in a match against Stephanie McMahon, as that would be one of the biggest draws for the company. However, Dana White is unlikely to allow a top level UFC draw to risk injury inside of a wrestling ring. That means that we will more than likely see Triple H and The Rock working a match where the two ladies would be in their respective corners.

A big obstacle for WWE in getting Ronda Rousey into the wrestling ring is the fact that Dana White and UFC will not clear her to perform. Some are noting that the promotion has done so for other fighters in the past, including the one where they allowed Josh Barnett to work a professional wrestling match in Japan last year. However, they are failing to take into considerations that Ronda is currently one of their biggest draws right now.

Fans of MMA have long ridiculed professional wrestling fans by repeatedly reminding them that they are watching a fake sport. Ironically enough, though, the UFC fighters themselves are fans of WWE. Several of them were spotted sitting in the audience at Levi Stadium during Wrestlemania. Some names mentioned were Chael Sonnen, Daniel Cormier, Jessamyn Duke, Nate Diaz, Gilbert Melendez, Shayna Baszler and Marina Shaffir.

While Dana White has yet to sign off on the deal, WWE will continue to push forward with the story line for Ronda Rousey. The hope is that they can eventually convince UFC to allow her to work a professional wrestling match against Stephanie McMahon. It is being said that her next appearance could be at Hell in a Cell, as the pay per view is in Los Angeles. The world famous fighter really does want to get in the ring and try it out.

It is no secret that Ronda Rousey is a big fan of wrestling. She was said to be beyond excited when the company asked her to do a segment at Wrestlemania. She even hinted afterwards that she was only beginning. That has led fans to speculate on whether or not the UFC star will actually wrestling for WWE soon. The likelihood of that happening is slim to none because Dana White will not allow that to happen under his watch.
