Ronda Rousey to appear at WWE Monday Night Raw in Cleveland on March 26

Rousey recently signed a full-time contract with WWE.

CLEVELAND -- In January, Ronda Rousey shocked the sports entertainment world when she made her WWE debut at the Royal Rumble.

Soon, the former UFC superstar's new career path will bring her to Cleveland.

On Monday, WWE announced that Rousey will appear at each weekly episode of Monday Night Raw between now and WrestleMania 34, which will take place on April 8. That will include WWE's March 26 stop in Cleveland, for what will be the second-to-last episode of Raw before its biggest show of the year.

"What impact will Rousey have on the Road to WrestleMania?" WWE wrote on its official website. "Tune in to Raw every week to find out!"

Rousey's upcoming Raw appearance will mark her first on-screen return to the Buckeye State since defeating Miesha Tate in a Strikeforce event in Columbus in 2012. And although her in-ring WWE debut will be saved for WrestleMania in New Orleans, her appearance in Cleveland will likely be used to further her current on-camera feud with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, which began at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event in Las Vegas last week.

The first-ever UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion, Rousey rose to national prominence with a record six title defenses as she became the biggest women's MMA star in the sport's history. But after suffering a pair of devastating defeats, first to Holly Holm and then to Amanda Nunes, the 2008 Olympics bronze medalist in judo opted to focus on her Hollywood career, having appeared in films such as The Expendables 3, Furious 7 and Entourage.

In January, Rousey made her WWE debut, appearing at the Royal Rumble, where she pointed at the WrestleMania sign following the first-ever women's Royal Rumble match.

And although it remains to be seen who she will face at the 'Show of Shows,' next month, we at least now know that her 'Road to WrestleMania' will include a detour in Cleveland.
