Ronda Rousey worked closely with WWE’s Creative Team during her first run with the company. She also worked closely with Paul Heyman. Through an interaction on Facebook Live Stream with fans, she opened up about her experience with WWE’s creative process.
Rousey revealed how things are not set in stone in WWE and mentioned that things are very fluid when it comes to the creative process. As fans have witnessed, changing plans is typical of WWE, and Rousey shed some light on the topic.
“Actually, not true” Rousey said. “A lot of things change all the time. People have an idea of what they want overall months in advance, but as things go along, and a lot of the time the audience has a lot to do with it and the reception, things do change. Sometimes things change in the ring where people think it’s going to be one thing and then the ref is like ‘nope, this is what’s happening.’ And it’s not as set in stone as you would think. We get curveballs all the time.”
Earlier, Rousey was announced for tonight’s episode of WWE Monday Night RAW. However, Rousey confirmed she would not be a part of the event. But, the 35-year-old ensured that she would be present at SmackDown this Friday night, a day before night one of WrestleMania 38.
“Yes, I am working at all of those. WrestleMania and Smackdown,” Rousey said. “Which is going to be such a crazy 24 hours leading up to WrestleMania because it’s going to be Smackdown and then we’re going to Hall of Fame and then Mania’s the next day. It’s going to be a long day, a late night that leads to another long night, a late night. It reminds me of when I did SNL and I was like literally no sleep for 24 hours leading up the show.”
Rousey made a comeback at this year’s Royal Rumble event winning the Women’s Royal Rumble match. She will be challenging Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship on Night One of WrestleMania 38 in Arlington, Texas.
