Alexa Bliss and Lana hit back at Ronda Rousey for calling WWE games “fake fights”.
Rousey turned his heel gimmick to the max during an interview with Steve-O on the Wild ride podcast Thursday (via Joshua Gagnon of Wrestling Inc.).
“I love WWE,” she said. ” I had a great time. I love all the girls in the locker room. Running over there and having fake fights for fun is just the best thing. I love the choreography. I love playing. I love the theater. Live theater and some of the latest forms of live theater. ”
Rousey also called the WWE Universe to be “ungrateful fans.”
Bliss and Lana responded to comments on Twitter:
Lexi Kaufman @AlexaBliss_WWE
Hm. Has been absent for almost a year. Must be “false” https://t.co/lnLLAq3laT
CJ “Lana” Perry @LanaWWE
I have NO WORDS for her audacity to save the “fake fights” !!!!!! If not, why can’t it @RealPaigeWWE & amp; @TJWilson can’t fight anymore ?? If not, why can’t @EdgeRatedR fight for 11 years ???? It’s a contact sport where REAL things happen! https://t.co/cYvGpTjmci
The situation feels like a worked shoot.
Rousey is unlikely to return to a full-time schedule with WWE, which she discussed on the podcast as taking too much time for her family, so her remarks during this part of the conversation are likely legitimate.
Take pictures of the matches and the fans had the vibe of playing with his character to create extra warmth when they returned part-time.
Rousey, who was away from WWE while trying to start a family with husband Travis Browne, did not provide a schedule for his return during an appearance in January on the After the bell podcast (via Ekin Karasin from Subway).
“Probably whenever I feel like it,” she said.
Rousey can expect a negative reaction when she returns to the square circle with comments, and that’s exactly what she and WWE are probably counting on.
