The Bo$$ may be preparing for a therapy session with her former bestie Bayley (after the latter went INSANE on Monday and beat her unconscious before yelling obscenities) but she’s still got a very particular opinion about Ronda Rousey. She said back in January that she wasn’t a big fan of the Rowdy One, and wasn’t sure if she really earned her spot on the roster.

For me, I feel like she gets it, and I think it’s because she was a fan growing up. She knows what our audience wants to see, and she makes me feel everything that she’s going through. I think that’s one of the hardest things about being a WWE superstar, which is making people feel whether she’s hurt or not.
