WWE has brought in many high profile sports starts who were looking to crossover into pro wrestling. Ronda Rousey might not be the only huge name that WWE had their eyes on because the Williams sisters could follow her. Bad Bunny might not be the only hip-hop star that WWE wants to work with either, because Cardi B is always making waves.

Stephanie McMahon recently spoke to the Rich Eisen show where the idea of WWE signing Venus & Serena Williams came up. McMahon praised the legendary tennis playing sisters. She also namedropped Cardi B as someone who would be a good fit for the company.

“From an athlete perspective, I would love to see the Williams sisters [Venus and Serena] either individually or together. There are so many incredible female and male athletes out there that I would love to bring into WWE. From a celebrity standpoint, in addition to the ones we’ve already worked with, I think it could be really cool to work with Cardi B. She had a tweet she put out not long ago which was in reference to her name on the show. I think she’s so colorful herself and so vivacious and full of life that I think she would even bring it up a notch in WWE. I think she’d be awesome.”

“I think that going in a completely other direction, Matthew McConaughey has been really catching on in terms of WWE. He was on RAW to promote his book and he and Drew had an interaction. There just seems like there is opportunity there. There are so many young influencers and gamers and everything else. I think WWE is this incredible world – almost like this gaming world come to life with all these different characters and backstories. So, I think there are a lot of untapped celebrities and influencers I would love to work with.”


Matthew McConaughey is also a WWE fan and he would be a very interesting choice. Out of all those prospects, Venus and Serena Williams seem to be the two most qualified to take bumps in the ring. Don’t forget how Bad Bunny surprised so many with his WrestleMania moment as well.

With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
