“F**k Everybody”: Ronda Rousey Was Backed by UFC Champion as the World Turned on Her for WWE Move
Ronda Rousey is currently a WWE superstar. But before that, The Rowdy One had a great run in the UFC. Rousey has enjoyed success during her UFC career, being the inaugural UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion. But she faced some criticism after she signed for WWE.
While Ronda Rousey had to face criticism for her WWE move, the UFC star Israel Adesanya had Rousey’s back. During an interview with Fightful, Izzy claimed he was 100 percent supportive of Rousey. He also noted that he thought Rousey’s move to the WWE is a great one and she should enjoy herself.
Israel Adesanya said, “You see the work those guys put in and people are so quick to forget (about Rousey’s other accomplishments). People are so quick to forget how great Ronda was, how much of a pioneer she was in the game.”
The Last Stylebender further added, “You think about it, from Dana (White) saying ‘There will be no women in the UFC’ to then having her do what she did. Going to the WWE, I think it’s great. She should enjoy herself and get that money and f**k everybody else.”
When did Ronda Rousey make her WWE in-ring debut?
As per reports, Ronda Rousey signed with WWE on a full-time basis back in 2017. But it took some time before she made her in-ring debut. However, the WWE fans got to see Rousey in the exciting pro wrestling action at WrestleMania 34.
Prior to that, Rousey had been involved in some segments and showed the fans what she was capable of. And at WrestleMania 34, The Baddest Woman on the Planet teamed up with Kurt Angle to take on Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in a mixed tag team match.
Prior to WrestleMania 34, Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and Kurt Angle all had more experience of competing inside the squared circle than Ronda Rousey. But one can never doubt the skills of the former SmackDown champ. All four individuals provided a good performance. But in the end, Ronda Rousey and Kurt Angle came out as the winners of the match.
The Baddest Woman on the Planet will battle Liv Morgan for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship at WWE SummerSlam 2022
Ronda Rousey defeated Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania Backlash this year to win the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship. But at WWE Money in the Bank, Liv Morgan had a surprise for Rousey after she successfully defended her championship against Natalya.
In the opening match of WWE Money in the Bank 2022, Liv Morgan emerged as the winner of the Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match. And after Rousey’s victory over Natalya, Morgan came out and cashed in her Money in the Bank contract.
But as soon as the bell rang, it looked like Liv Morgan had made a mistake. Rousey caught Morgan in the Ankle lock. But Liv Morgan took advantage of Rousey’s bad knee and got out of the hold. She then picked up the win by a roll up pin.
Thus, Liv Morgan ended Ronda Rousey’s reign as the WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion. However, Rousey will get a rematch and a chance to win back the title at WWE SummerSlam 2022.
