Ronda Rousey made her debut in WWE at the end of the 2018 edition of the Royal Rumble event after transitioning from the UFC. She would go on to win the WWE RAW Women’s Championship and hold it for half a year until dropping it at WrestleMania 35 in 2019. After an “impregnation vacation,” the Baddest Woman on the Planet is back in WWE.
Rousey was absent from WWE television for almost three years as fans lost all hope Rousey would ever come back. However, Rousey shocked the world as she returned during the Women’s Royal Rumble match this year and won the match as well after eliminating Charlotte Flair
While speaking with The Zaslow Show on AM 560 Sports WQAM (Miami), Kurt Angle talked about Ronda Rousey’s pro wrestling career so far. Angle admitted that he was surprised to see how quickly Ronda Rousey picked up pro wrestling psychology.
“She is. But she picked up on the theatrics of it as well. You know, there’s a lot of emotion and psychology involved in pro wrestling that she picked up pretty quickly, that I was really surprised. I mean, she is a world-class athlete, nothing wrong with that. You definitely want a world-class athlete in professional wrestling. But to be able to pick up the character and the psychology, that is really tough to do, especially as quickly as she did.”
It remains to be seen how WWE will be booking Ronda Rousey’s feud with Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 38.
