Are Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler practicing for a WWE Divas match?

According to a March 12 report from FOX Sports, UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey and fellow UFC star Shayna "The Queen of Spades" Baszler were recently spotted practicing some pro wrestling moves in a training ring on the West Coast.

Rousey and Baszler were likely just horsing around for fun, but there's a chance they could be thinking about making the transition to the WWE someday. It can't hurt to be prepared if the opportunity was to arise, so why not?

In all likelihood, Rousey and Baszler were just goofing around between serious MMA drills at their gym.

However, it could be that its in the back of their minds that the chance would open up someday to make a guest WWE appearance in an official Diva's Match.

If Rousey and Baszler were to get good enough at pro wrestling techniques, there's no reason to think that the WWE would decline to try to secure their services for at least one bout.

Analysis: Rousey and Baszler are huge WWE fans, as they religiously watch WWE Monday Night Raw together on Monday nights. Would they love to battle at least once inside the WWE ring, perhaps against The Bella Twins or A.J. Lee?

No one knows for sure except them, but chances are they probably do at least have the itch to give a WWE Divas match a whirl.

Baszler's Twitter page is full of back-and-forth tweets to WWE Divas stars such as Natalie Neidhart, and Rousey is a known supporter of CM Punk and The Rock.

But perhaps the best reason for Rousey and Baszler to throw down with some WWE Divas sometime in the near future is that it would be great cross-promotion between the UFC and the WWE.

The UFC could certainly use a little push in attention while they deal with Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre being sidelined, so Rousey and Baszler making a cameo in the WWE ring would be great exposure for the promotion.
