Miesha Tate Open to Working with WWE

Posted By James Walsh on 02/06/18

Miesha Tate has reiterated her interest in potentially working with WWE. The former UFC star spoke on her SiriusXM show (per MMAnytt) about possibly following her longtime rival Ronda Rousey into the company. Tate said she is interested in an appearance with the company, but was less certain about possibly working with Rousey in WWE.

“I’ve always said I would be down to do a cameo with WWE so I personally wouldn’t want to do a two or three year world tour cause I know there’s so much that goes into that and especially now with a baby on the way and I don’t want to take that time away from my family,” she said. “So I would be open to a cameo possibly but with Ronda specifically? That changes things a little bit. It depends on how much we’d have to work together on the choreography before the cameo.”

Speaking specifically about Rousey, she said, “If the money’s right, maybe. That’s one thing I’ve always had in my favor is that I’ve always been able to be the bigger person, like get over it. I’m never going to like Ronda but I don’t hate her. I don’t have to be unprofessional. I could sit in the same room with her. I could put it aside, I can be professional so I know I could get the job done, but I wouldn’t want to have to hang out with Ronda and work on choreography and act like we don’t like each other cause that’s not the case. That would be like “The Ultimate Fighter” all over again but worse I think.”

Tate and Rousey were heated rivals in MMA, having fought once each in Strikeforce and the UFC. Rousey won both fights, though Tate was also the first person to ever last past the first round against her. The rivalry had a lot of influence in bringing women’s MMA into focus.
