Ronda Rousey looks impressive in first WWE training video

CLEVELAND, Ohio – It appears Ronda Rousey’s extensive judo background is paying dividends in her early WWE training.

The former UFC superstar and champion recently signed a contract with WWE and has begun training for what many expect to be a high profile match at WrestleMania 34 in April.

PWP Nation has obtained leaked footage of Rousey training with friend and fellow WWE signee Shayna Baszler. Between the judo throws and arm bars, Rousey is looking like she could hold her own in an actual match.

Of course, there’s more to putting on a show in WWE than technical moves. Rousey still has to learn how to sell moves and handle herself during a promo.

But things are looking very promising. See for yourself:
