Ronda Rousey Loving WWE ‘More than I ever Thought I Would’

Published

on

Ronda Rousey joined WWE in January, making her on-screen debut at the Royal Rumble, and from there her journey began as a WWE superstar, one that would see her debut in a stellar match at WrestleMania 34, and compete in a handful of matches, including the impressive bout with Nia Jax for the RAW’s Women Championship.

Rousey’s WWE had a timeline, as she intends to start a family, but that timeline may be changing due to how good Rousey’s WWE career has started out.

“I love this way more than I ever thought I would,” Rousey said, according to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.

“We had a set timeline set, and now we aren’t so sure about it because I love it so much,” Rousey, 31, stated. “I guess that’s the best thing that could’ve happened, that I would love it so much it would be so hard to stop. I can see why people have a hard time leaving this industry because it’s such joy to be a part of every day.”

Rousey is out promoting WWE2K19 and also this Sunday’s SummerSlam PPV which will see her take on Alexa Bliss for the RAW Women’s Championship title.

“My [wrestling] move set is kind of still evolving and taking shape, so I’d be really interested in to see what they actually come up with [in 2K19],” Rousey said. “There’s a bunch of stuff I haven’t even been able to show yet, that I’ve been keeping in my back pocket.”

During her career competing in the UFC, Rousey jokingly compared the busy weeks to juggling a unicycle. But, her WWE duties are more fun.

“It’s not like I’m juggling on a unicycle, on a balance beam like over a bed of knives, you know what I mean?” Rousey said. “I’m juggling on a unicycle that’s in a bouncy house. If I fall off, I go boing right back up to the unicycle. It’s fine. I don’t die. I fall off.”

NJPW Talent Considering Departure, Upset with New Management

Published

on

It appears that the new management heading up NJPW, led by Harold Meij, is rubbing talent the wrong way, upsetting their wrestlers so much so that they are considering a departure from the promotion, eyeing WWE as the next destination.

According to Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer, Meij is also receiving backlash.

“The initial reaction was that the feeling was that he talks down to the wrestlers, he then continued to say many of the wrestlers are concerned he has no history in the business as well.

There are people who in the past had never even considered WWE who are thinking about it, and others who were completely committed to staying who are probably still leaning that way, but are considering the WWE option.”

Kaitlyn Discusses Mae Young Classic

Following her recent return to professional wrestling, former WWE Diva’s Champion Kaitlyn is back in WWE for the Mae Young Classic and is hoping that the tournament can give her a boost to the RAW or Smackdown roster.

Kaitlyn took a hiatus from wrestling following her release from WWE in 2014, and she believes that given her WWE experience, she won’t need to go through NXT to get to the main roster.

“Now that I’ve been there and done it, the stakes are higher, the level of competition is higher, so I see myself just going through it, going through the Mae Young Classic, going through NXT, going through the SmackDown roster, going through the Raw roster” Kaitlyn said, during an interview with ESPN. I know I’m capable of it, and I think the Mae Young Classic is just the beginning.”
