Ronda Rousey had a great run in WWE during her rookie year. She won the RAW Women’s Championship and was involved in a high profile feud with Becky Lynch.

While speaking on the Broken Skull Sessions, Stone Cold Steve Austin asked Sasha Banks about Ronda Rousey’s contribution to women’s wrestling in WWE.

Austin clarified his question and asked if Rousey was a special attraction on the same level as Mike Tyson was. Banks then claimed that she played Ronda Rousey’s role already.

“You can bring in Ronda Rousey, but you should be paying me for doing what she’s doing. You have the talent here, I’ve put in the work. But, Ronda Rousey is a household legend and name to her own. If it wasn’t for Ronda Rousey, who knows if the women’s division here would be women’s wrestling. She put in the work. She loved it. She came into the locker room very humbled and wanting to know everything that she could to be the best.”


Rousey hasn’t been seen on WWE television since WrestleMania 35. Many fans have been wondering whether Rousey will make her return to the company.
