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.
One of the major turning points in Ronda’s WWE career was during the 2018 Survivor Series, where she squared off against Charlotte Flair. Fans turned on Rousey, which legitimately distressed Rousey.
Since then Rousey made it clear she does not like fan opinions whatsoever. Ever since she came back to WWE earlier this year, her promos have made it clear she is uncomfortable adjusting to the WWE audience.
While speaking to CBS Sports’ Shkaiel Mahjouri, WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle stated that he believes Ronda Rousey needs to learn to accept crowd responses.
“I think that Ronda didn’t understand the business quite totally. The fans are going to react the way they want to react. There is really nothing you can do about it. You can navigate it to a certain extent, but you’re not going to know exactly what kind of responses you’re going to get. When you do, you have to accept those responses.”
WWE also talked to Ronda Rousey about letting her bitterness towards fans go. We’ll have to see whether Rousey will be able to defeat Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 38 or not.
