Which other WWE Superstars alongside Ronda Rousey make up the Four Horsemen of MMA?

Ronda Rousey was already a well-known figure even before her time in WWE as an MMA fighter, where she also became one of the members of the Four Horsewomen in the UFC. Although the star is now in the Stamford-based promotion, she is not the company’s only rider.

Back when Rousey was still in the UFC, she was one of the fighters who coached season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter reality series in 2013. Longtime MMA rival Miesha Tate l was facing. Ronda has also brought in different professionals to help train her team, including Marina Shafir, who served as Rousey’s sparring partner.

Over the course of the season, Ronda and Marina grew closer to two of the season’s contenders, Shayna Baszler and Jessamyn Duke. Their friendship then continued even after the season and was eventually called The Four Horsewomen, inspired by the iconic wrestling stable of the Four Horsemen.

Although the women were into MMA at the time, they were all big pro wrestling fans. According to Shayna, the fans gave them the name inspired by the heelish wrestling stable.

“I love it. It started out as a joke, but I think it’s a really good representation of us,” Baszler said. “We’re kind of a heel that people love to love and love to hate. is kind of the same as The Four Horsemen We Are The Four Horsemen.

The four continued to support each other even after their move to MMA. They were present during Ronda Rousey’s WrestleMania 31 moment and were also present for Baszler’s performance at the Mae Young Classic tournament in 2017. Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir also spent time in NXT, where they mostly lined up with Shayna before their release in 2021.

Lately, Ronda Rousey and the former NXT Women’s Champion continued their partnership on SmackDown. Shafir is now with AEW and Duke mostly publishes gaming content on YouTube.

Ronda Rousey wants to reunite with the Four Horsewomen in WWE

Although half the members of the MMA stable have already taken different paths, the current SmackDown Women’s Champion still dreams of an on-screen reunion.

In a YouTube live stream, Ronda Rousey was asked if she wanted to reunite with the band, to which she responded positively.

“Yeah, I would. You know what would be even better? If we were all in WWE and they let us work together. That would be great.
