UFC fighter Cris Cyborg and former UFC fighter and current Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey are not exactly on the best of terms. In fact, speculation is that Rousey is such a non-fan of Cyborg that when WWE suggested the idea of bringing Cyborg into WWE, Rousey threatened to leave.
That hasn’t stopped Cyborg from wanting to pursue something with WWE and every once and a while, she drops a hint that she’s not forgotten about Rousey.
Thursday, Cyborg took another indirect shot at Rousey when she promoted the fact that she’d be attending Starrcast this year. In her Tweet she included the now-famous photo of Rousey getting kneed by Charlotte in the go-home to WrestleMania Raw that saw all three of the women in the WrestleMania main event handcuffed and charted off to the police station. The knee has become a meme and viral moment and Cyborg made her own.
It will be interesting to see if Rousey responds. She’s often quick to do so on social media and we can almost all expect Becky Lynch to get in on the action.
