UFC star Michelle Waterson is open to the opportunity to move to WWE. This comes after the recent merger between UFC and WWE.
Less than a week has passed, but the sensational announcement of WWE and UFC, the two biggest producers of combat sports, joining forces as one corporate entity has divided many people, including wrestlers and fighters. A few UFC competitors believe that the union will help the sport advance even though the situation is not entirely apparent at this time.
Michelle Waterson was asked about the merger in a recent interview with the Hindustan Times.
"I think it's a great merger. At the end of the day they are two separate things, just like boxing and MMA are two separate sports. But at the end of the day people tune in because they want to be entertained. And I hope that they can do this gracefully and tastefully, in a way that both entities maintain their integrity as far as what they are,” she said in the interview.
Waterson also recalled her long career in the UFC and said that she would be interested to move to the WWE if the opportunity presents.
“I fight in the UFC because it's the best organization with the best fighters in the world. And I hope that doesn't change. I've been fighting for over 15 years. This is the 16th year of me fighting, maybe even longer geez. But it would be nice even for me to transition into something like that.
“So a bridge for the fighters to do something after they're done fighting would be amazing and I would absolutely welcome that opportunity,” she added.
