Ronda Rousey captured headlines in the wrestling word with her appearance at WrestleMania 31 back in April. She and The Rock bested Triple H and Stephanie McMahon at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara and opened the door for Rousey to make future appearances.

While there are no specific plans in the works, Rousey is eager to work with WWE.

“I’m ready,” Rousey told Rolling Stone. “I’ve seen NXT, I remember Nattie and Charlotte’s match for the title. Nattie was actually training with the original Four Horsewomen to get ready for that fight. I have so many obligations, but I really want to find a way to make it happen. I’m a huge fan wrestling, and I would like to see the position of women in the sport continue to improve, so if I can be a part of it, great.”

WWE is in the midst of a “Divas Revolution,” in which a number of young women with superb wrestling ability have been called up to the main WWE roster and have dominated the T.V. time alloted to the women’s division.

“I’m really encouraged by the progress I’ve seen with what they’re doing with the women in WWE, but I feel like there’s a lot more than can be done,” she says. “They’re doing some of it now, too. I’m really excited that they’ve brought up all these great women from NXT, who are all different from the normal mold they would use for the Divas division. I’m not going to take credit for anything, but I definitely want to be part of it as much as I can.”
