CM Punk drew thousands in attendance in his debut UFC fight after an accomplished pro-wrestling career with the World Wrestling Entertainment. Now, imagine the WWE Women's Division getting a major upgrade with Miesha Tate. 

Yes, the 30-year old wrestler entertained the idea of making an appearance, or even considering a career, in professional wrestling after her retirement a couple of months back following her unanimous decision loss to Raquel Pennington in UFC 205. She made the statement in a Q&A event in London, according to Uproxx

""I would love to, maybe Mickey Gall and I could have a match for good humor," said the former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion in response to the question. Mickey Gall, if WWE fans remember, was the one who faced CM Punk in his debut in UFC and beat him via submission. She also said that it would be fun and she is open to all kind of things. 

With Tate expressing her desire in making it to professional wrestling someday, specifically with WWE, she will be joining Ronda Rousey among the women MMA fighters who will be making an appearance with the promotion. "Rowdy" was a guest in Wrestlemania 31 where she was seen wearing a black tank top with Vegeta front print, confronting Triple H and Stephanie McMahon (The Authority) that ended with her and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson standing in the middle of the ring. 

In June 2016, Tate found herself at the same situation where rumors said that she will be appearing in a WWE ring based on reports from The Court Of Nerds. The rumors did not materialize as she was not seen inside the ring. 

Should Vince McMahon give her papers to make her part of the women's division official, she would be a great match-up Charlotte Flair, a submission specialist known for her "figure of 8" lock.
