During her UFC days, Ronda Rousey was billed as an indestructible force. She would defeat her opponents within seconds and quickly earned herself the moniker “Baddest Woman On The Planet.” However, when her UFC career ended, she switched on over to the WWE, and the rest is history.

Given her background and popularity, Ronda Rousey was instantly pushed to the main event. She won the RAW Women’s Championship almost immediately after debuting. In fact, she held the title for an impressive 231 days.

During an interview with Denise Salcedo, Kurt Angle had nothing but nice things to say about the former UFC fighter. The Olympic Gold Medalist even said he believes Ronda Rousey had a better year than Brock Lesnar.

“She did an excellent job. The one thing Ronda didn’t do that she could and will do eventually she never mastered the business because she wasn’t in it long enough and we had to set things in stone for Ronda.


We had to tell her, ‘This is what you’re gonna do here. This is what you’re gonna do there.’ We had to give her step-by-step instructions and go over with her for multiple days so that she would be ready for the match. She knew everything that was gonna go on. In the business, once you get experience, you learn how to improvise and work on the fly, and you come up with 50 percent of the match and then the other 50 percent you just make it up as you go along. Ronda didn’t get an opportunity to learn that. But, what she did in her first year, I would even say she had a better first year than Brock Lesnar or myself. So, I think she did incredibly well, but I think the WWE did an incredible job of getting her ready for it.”

Ever since Ronda Rousey’s return to the ring, she has been dominant again. She even won the SmackDown Women’s Championship twice in the past year. Despite being in the business for short time, Rousey has already had a Hall of Fame-worthy career. Stay tuned to Ringside News for more coverage of similar stories.
