SMACKDOWN Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey is keen on a tag team title run with fellow UFC hero Shayna Baszler.
Rousey, 35, and Baszler, 42, have been teaming up recently on SmackDown ever since the latter helped the champion retain against Shotzi at Survivor Series WarGames last month.

The UFC Hall of Famer has been dominating the singles division as champion – having held her title since October – but is keen to shake things up in the tag team division.
And The Baddest Woman on the Planet would love the prospect of challenging WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Iyo Sky and Dakota Kai alongside longtime friend and fellow MMA hero Baszler.
Rousey said on her YouTube channel when asked if she would be keen to go for the titles with The Queen of Spades: “Yes I’m happy just to have a tag title. I don’t need a singles title.
“A tag run would be fun. I mean, both is cool. I’ve been doing singles for so long, I’m ready to change it up.
“That’s another thing, too, people forget I only have a year-and-a-half of in-ring experience.”
The two athletes go way back as they lived together during their early MMA days, which saw them train and spar against each other before reaching UFC and WWE success.
Baszler recently told SunSport that she will “always be aligned” with Rousey because they are “team-mates”.
However, the two fighters have never clashed in the ring since transitioning from mixed martial arts.
Baszler has also expressed her desire to one day lock horns with Rousey and even believes a dream match between them may “eventually” happen soon.
But it currently looks like The Rowdy One is preoccupied with other challengers, like Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez.
