The Wall Street Journal reported a lawsuit filed by Janel Grant, a former WWE employee, against WWE, Vince McMahon, and John Laurinaitis in a Connecticut federal court. The lawsuit included allegations of sex trafficking against McMahon, adding a layer of controversy to the wrestling world.

Amidst these legal matters, Ronda Rousey, during a “Never Before Told” live signing event to promote her new book “Our Fight,” was questioned about the existence of real-life conflicts among MMA fighters and if she had any personal issues with anyone.

In her characteristically manner, Rousey responded, “In MMA, I originally just started them for publicity, but those other *itches did not get the memo, and so they became personal. And in WWE, it’s all fake – I love them. Except for Bruce Prichard and John Laurinaitis. They can go f*ck themselves.”

This unfiltered remark from Rousey shed light on her feelings towards certain individuals within the wrestling industry, particularly singling out Bruce Prichard and John Laurinaitis. Notably, Rousey had previously mentioned Prichard in January, commenting on Vince McMahon’s resignation from WWE, suggesting Prichard’s significant role within the organization despite McMahon’s purported absence.


The remarks made by Rousey during the live signing event provided insight into the complexities of relationships within the wrestling world, showcasing both camaraderie and animosity behind the scenes.
