Ronda Rousey may be waiting for the rapid COVID-19 pandemic in the comfort of her self-sufficient California home, but that hasn’t stopped the former UFC bantamweight champion from making headlines this week.
This time around, Rousey finds herself in hot water with angry WWE fans after commenting earlier this week on professional wrestling as “fake fights for fun.” Rousey also made it clear that she feels underrated by a “thankless” WWE universe.
Whether or not Rousey feels betrayed by professional wrestling fans, this is probably not the best time to create new enemies. The world is practically falling apart around us and if Rousey wants to one day return to the WWE mix, these comments could come back to haunt her.
However, the former UFC champion seems to be sticking to her guns, posting the following message to Twitter earlier today to defend his comments and position on professional wrestling:
“Anyone who is outraged by my calling professional wrestling” fake fights for fun “has never been in a REAL fight. While you are all tricks to bruise the huge soft egos of some professional wrestlers – no one thinks of all the REAL fighters you insult when pretending that professional wrestling is somehow at the same level of realism. Yes, I understand, fighting 300 days a year for years is incredibly difficult for the bodu and a difficult profession – but do you know what would happen if you took part in 300 REAL fights in a year? You would be dead, ”wrote Rousey.
Considering that Rousey is already the greatest of all time, she really doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone. But again, “Rowdy” seems to burn more bridges than she creates if she ever wants to make a return to WWE, which would likely welcome her given her global power. There is a small chance that Rousey will decide to play in his WWE heel status before returning to the ring, but this is relatively unlikely given the things that have been said.
For now, Rousey will have to clean up the pieces of his recent comments and defend himself against anyone who disagrees with his point of view. It turns out that this includes professional wrestling as a whole and its millions of fans.
