Just moments after “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey was disciplined with a 30-day suspension from World Wrestling Entertainment, a practically identical-looking newcomer made her debut on Impact Wrestling.
“What is ‘Randy’ Ronda Rooney doing in the Impact Zone?!” hollered incredulous commentator Josh Matthews. “I’ve never seen anything like this!”
Speculation abounds online as to whether Rooney is actually Rousey herself wearing slightly different ring attire, though a statement from Impact Wrestling says any resemblance is “purely coincidental.”
After storming to the ring, Rooney attacked a number of Impact’s most dominant “Knockouts,” including Mia Max, Becca Launch, and Raleigh-Durham Flare.
According to backstage sources, Rooney has signed a 29-day contract with Impact Wrestling.
