For many fans, Ronda Rousey is the biggest name to transition from MMA to pro wrestling. The Baddest Woman on the Planet signed a contract with WWE in 2018 and almost immediately became a huge deal in the company. She also opened up about what people think about her work.
One of the major turning points in Ronda’s WWE career was during the 2018 Survivor Series, where she duked it out with Charlotte Flair. Fans turned on Rousey and that really affected her.
Rousey even admitted she has difficulty not taking it personally when fans don’t give her a positive reaction. While speaking on Wives Of Wrestling podcast, Rousey was asked how she goes about receiving feedback on her work. Rousey said that she doesn’t need to know what people think of her work.
“I don’t really need to know what people think about my work. It’s kind of like if you go to an art gallery and there’s like the artists there like, ‘I threw this pain at this f****** thing.’ They don’t want to stand there and explain to them what their paint splat means. They don’t care what other people think of their paint splat.
They were feeling a thing and splatter their paint. It’s there for you to make of it what you will. I don’t think really how it’s perceived matters too much. I guess the feedback I get is like a live audience. There’s a lot of times when what you think is coming online and what the live audience is expressing are two opposite things.”
Ronda Rousey is also expected to defeat Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania Backlash next month. We’ll have to see whether that ends up happening or not.
