Woo! This actually sounds pretty interesting. Maybe WWE is Rousey's calling after all. The match takes place on March 5 -- who's watching?

MMA competition showed us what real fighting looks like, whether skillfully done or not. Action movie fights no longer have overdone flowing Kung fu sequences if they want to present a semblance of realism because the public has a different expectation now.

Pro Wrestling at its best is about compelling and engaging storytelling, in which the fights are just a vehicle to further whatever narrative they cooked up to keep you engaged and rooting for somebody. 

Why on Earth would they take Rousey and have her ragdoll a 260+ pound dude, when anybody following her career knows she's only there because she got her face melted by two girls at 135 pounds is beyond me in terms of interesting storytelling, and it takes an unpleasantly tangible effort to suspend my disbelief that far.

At least they put in some insurance in case she flops by padding her match with some proven talent.

Seriously, I could feel my IQ dropping while watching that, then they started to pretend fight.  Sure, all very athletic and all, but as entertaining as watching paint dry.
