Yep, the WWE Superstar just inked a deal with Facebook Gaming … and Rousey is set to stream exclusively on FB.
Ronda made the announcement on Thursday … saying, “Gaming has always been a huge part of my life, and I can’t wait to share that passion with my millions of fans on Facebook Gaming. Through my streams, people can hang out with the real me, not the ‘character’ version of myself they’re used to seeing, though the ‘Rowdy One’ can’t always be contained.”
“In recent years, games have been a great way for me to keep my mind active when my body is too sore or tired to move.”
“One of my favorite gaming memories happened when I was 11 years old and encountered an Articuno on Pokemon Blue for the first time. I was awestruck and thought she looked like an angel,” Rousey says.
“Looking back at that same image now, I’m amazed how powerful our imaginations can be and how gaming encourages us to imagine what our reality could be instead of just accepting it for what it is—a skill that has helped me in my fighting and entertainment careers countless times.”
Facebook has been heavy into gaming lately … signing some of the biggest gamers to 7-figure deals — and they obviously see Ronda as someone with a huge audience and credibility as a gamer.
Remember, Rousey is in Mortal Kombat 11 … where she plays the iconic character, Sonya Blade.

Ronda’s first stream will be next Monday … and if you weren’t already psyched to watch, Rousey says, “100% of proceeds from the first stream go to Australian bushfire recovery efforts.”
