Ronda Rousey shocked the world after appearing at the end of the 2018 Royal Rumble, as she left the world of MMA behind. Rousey didn’t take long to become a huge deal in the company either. Kurt Angle also revealed an interesting thing about Ronda Rousey’s debut.
In her debut match, Ronda Rousey teamed up with Kurt Angle and squared off against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in a mixed tag team match. Rousey had a solid in-ring debut, as fans were surprised to see her picking up pro wrestling so quickly.
While speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, Kurt Angle talked about Ronda Rousey’s in-ring debut. Angle revealed that Rousey had to memorize every move for her WrestleMania debut.
“We wanted Ronda to memorize every single move because she didn’t learn the full ropes of pro wrestling and the whole psychology thing. She was just learning these moves, putting them together, and making sure she got everything fluid throughout the whole match and didn’t have any mess ups.
So she had to memorize everything. It was a difficult thing to do. But the whole match was built around Ronda Rousey. It was to make her look good. It was to shine her. The whole thing was meant for Ronda. We were all working for Ronda.”
It remains to be seen whether Ronda Rousey will defeat Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 38 this week or not.
