WWE: Why Film Role May Not Kill Off Ronda Rousey Wrestlemania Hopes
Ronda Rousey may still get her Wrestlemania moment in Texas next April, if the stars - and her filming schedule - comes together.
WWE fans have written off the UFC megastar's hopes of participating, off the back of her surprise at this year's event, following the announcement she will take the lead role in the reboot of 1980s cult classic Roadhouse.
Some wrestling reporters have cited the Wrestling Observer when suggesting Ronda will be tied up with filming alongside Mark Wahlberg for Mile 22 in March and April of 2016, but respected film industry sources such as Variety and Rolling Stone have noted camera will roll in February, three months after her next UFC fight against Holly Holm.
Depending on the size of her part in that flick, it is quite possible the most dangerous woman in the world will have wrapped by the time Wrestlemania comes around.
Commenting on the Roadhouse filming date, her agent Brad Slater said: "Production of the movie will be dictated, as always, by her fight schedule.
"That's how we always do it and that will be the case here."
Might that not also apply to any potential in-ring activities for confirmed WWE fan Ronda?
Rousey paid tribute to late star Patrick Swayze as she tweeted last night about her latest role, in which she will inhabit the role previously played by the Dirty Dancing star.
"It is a great honor to play a part in celebrating the life of a man that inspired so many," she said.
"I couldn't be more grateful to have this opportunity to pay respect to the beloved Patrick Swayze.
"I promise to work incessantly to make sure this project is a tribute his friends and family can be proud of."
