It might work for her. Wrestlers have a long history with acting as the theory goes that wrestlers are already acting so they might be able to act on screen. That theory has only worked on occasion though as many wrestlers have tried and failed to start acting careers. It hasn’t stopped anyone though and now another wrestler might be in line for a huge movie role.

According to Giant Freakin Robot, WWE star Ronda Rousey is up for the role of Thundra in the upcoming “Captain America: New World Order” film. The film, the fourth in the Captain America film, is expected to be released on May 3, 2024. There is no word on how close Rousey is to accepting the role or how big of a role it would be. Rousey has dabbled in acting over the years, including in the Fast And The Furious and Expendables franchises.

Rousey is already successful in the wrestling world. Check out some of her time there:

Opinion: This shouldn’t be the biggest surprise as Rousey is someone who seems like she would be perfect for a variety of acting roles. While she has appeared in a few roles, her acting career has not exactly taken off but maybe this is the one that might move her up to another level. Other than that, it would be sad to see Rousey leave WWE again, as she would probably miss quite a bit of time from the ring.

What do you think of the possibility? How would Rousey do in the role? Let us know in the comments below.
