UFC and WWE officially merged on Tuesday under the name “TKO” on the New York Stock Exchange. The Companies merged together to create a “media conglomerate” and took the sports world by storm. Following the merger, WWE executive Nick Khan spoke about possibly having UFC fighters come to WWE to prolong their careers after their fighting days are over. Now, they may have the first fighter with interest.
Valentina Shevchecko Interested In WWE
Valentina Shevchenko is set to headline Noche UFC this Saturday against Alexa Grasso. Ahead of the fight, Valentina was interviewed by ESPN where she was asked about the WWE and UFC merger and if she would be interested in jumping over to the wrestling scene. “I would love to.” Valentina said; “And I could say like, I don’t have to wait to where I’m done fighting, could do both, yeah. And It’s a huge opportunity, if now its kind of like ‘opened doors’, If in the future I will have this opportunity, I definitely would be very grateful for that.”
Ronda Rousey was the first female UFC fighter to make the jump over to WWE, making her in-ring debut back in2018 at WrestleMania 34. Now, could Valentina Shevchenko be the next female fighter to hop over to World Wrestling Entertainment?
