Ronda Rousey has her own NPC in World of Warcraft: Legion

Ronda Rousey is the latest to join the ranks of celebrity WoW players to have an NPC homage in the popular MMO.

Edit: Seems the joke's on us - Rhonda, Master of San Soo, isn't Ronda Rousey, but Rhonda Cox, assistant producer at Blizzard! Read that story here.

A new easter egg has been added to the alpha build for the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, Legion, and she's got a very familiar face.

Famed UFC champion fighter Ronda Rousey, having made headlines both for her prowess in the ring and her love of all things geek, now appears in the alpha build's Monk Class Hall as - of course - a monk named Rhonda, Master of San Soo.

Far from the first celebrity World of Warcraft player to be honored in this manner, she's also joined in Legion by the NPC Mina Kunis, alter ego to actress and WoW player Mila Kunis - though this was an existing NPC moved from another part of the game. 

Past celebrities to receive a similar homage in the game include Robin Williams, '80s actress and singer Olivia Newton-John, and famous Slap Chop pitchman Vince Offer, to name but a few on an extensive list.

Jessa wears a lot of hats - anthropology graduate, mother, obsessive book nerd, writer of both fiction and non-fiction - but her favorite hat is that of the gamer - a hat she's worn since owning an Atari was a "big deal."
