Buckle up, folks. Ronda Rousey's arrival in the WWE sounds imminent.

That's according to USA Today, which cites two spies friends close to the former UFC champion that say she's "finalizing details of her move to WWE."

The WWE has been licking its lips in anticipation of signing Rousey ever since her failed UFC comeback, which ended last December with a 48 second knockout loss to current women's bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes. Figures high up in the company have made public overtures saying the company would welcome her with open arms in whatever capacity she desired, so don't expect her to be jobbing at house shows in Milwaukee.

But WrestleMania? She could absolutely show up at WrestleMania. Previous rumors had the WWE hoping to set up a Four Horsewomen match between Ronda's Four Horsewomen (consisting of Ronda, Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir) taking on Charlotte Flair's Four Horsewomen (Flair, Becky Lynch, Bailey, and Sasha Banks). We'll have to wait and see if that comes together, but probably not too long given all these leaks.

WrestleMania 34 takes place in New Orleans on April 8th.
