Moments after Ronda Rousey became the new Raw Women’s champion, the Rowdy One embraced with close friend Natalya Neidhart then ran to the crowd to celebrate with her husband Travis Browne. Since her appearance at the Royal Rumble it’s been clear that Rousey had a bright future in the business, and recently admitted herself that she’s been enjoying her tenure in WWE way more than she thought she would.
Now Browne confirms that and more when he told TMZ that Ronda’s not only the happiest he’s ever seen her, but commends the WWE for their treatment of the UFC outsider.
Oh, she loves it. It’s definitely a new chapter in her life, you know? And this is one of the first times I’ve seen her truly enjoy the ride. So, she’s not super stressed. With all the stress that fighting brings, you’re working up to this moment and you can’t wait for that moment to be over so that you can celebrate. [Whereas] right now, it’s like full celebration mode all the time.
She’s having a blast, the WWE has been great, the athletes in WWE have been awesome, and very accepting and welcoming, and even with me too. At the end of the day, to those guys, I’m just Ronda Rousey’s husband. And they’ve been so nice to me and to her, too. And they want nothing but the best for her, and you can see in the way they work with her and interact with her. If she needs help with something, she has multiple people she can go to in the WWE.
