Ronda Rousey debuted at the end of 2018’s Royal Rumble event and didn’t take long to become one of the mainstays of WWE’s women’s division. She eventually became the RAW Women’s Champion but dropped it to Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 35. It seems Rousey was not tired during the WWE Royal Rumble this year.
Rousey wasn’t seen on WWE television since WrestleMania 35 and fans weren’t sure if they would ever see her again. It turned out, they did, as Rousey returned during the Women’s Royal Rumble match this year. She eliminated Charlotte Flair and won the match on top of that.
While speaking during a stream on Facebook, Ronda Rousey talked about how she is adjusting to her in-ring return in WWE. Rousey claimed that she wasn’t even breathing hard in the Women’s Royal Rumble match.
“Even at the Royal Rumble, I wasn’t even breathing hard at the end of it and in the match the other day [in Saudi Arabia], I wasn’t even, yeah. I’m an athlete, you know? So I’m not talking about breathing hard. I wasn’t feeling like I was — I couldn’t catch my breath or something like that.”
We will have to wait and see how WWE will be booking Ronda Rousey’s feud with Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 38.
