Ronda Rousey left WWE following her SummerSlam match against Shayna Baszler last year, distancing herself from professional wrestling for some time. Since then, Rousey has been really open about her issues with the promotion and made headlines by revealing shocking revelations about Vince McMahon.

In a recent interview with Rick Ucchino, the former WWE superstar pulled back the curtain on her departure from the wrestling giant. Rousey expressed her frustration with the company, particularly with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon. She candidly remarked that she no longer wanted to be seen as McMahon’s “action figure,” feeling like she was performing in custom matches tailored for McMahon’s personal satisfaction.

I just didn’t wanna be Vince’s action f—-ing figure anymore. I felt like I was like doing custom matches for a f—-ing sicko in the back. All power to the girls that keep fighting the good fight. But I’m in my mid-30’s now. I’ve got s—t to do.”

Rousey said that contrary to popular belief, McMahon remained heavily involved in day-to-day operations during her tenure at WWE. She said that McMahon never really left, even if reports suggested otherwise. According to Rousey, McMahon worked behind the scenes, although remotely, with his directions relayed through WWE producer Bruce Prichard.


“He was never gone while I was there. He was just phoning it in through Bruce Prichard. My agent who works at WME (Endeavor), he was telling me, ‘You know, he’s completely gone now, I swear.’ And I’m like, I’ll believe it when I see it, because everyone said he left before. He never left. He was there by text message.”

Additionally, Rousey has already stated that she has no intention to return to WWE. She cited the chaotic nature of the backstage environment as a primary reason for her decision to end her career in WWE, asserting that it’s simply not an environment she wishes to revisit.

As Rousey continues to speak out about her experiences in WWE, her comments casts doubts over the leadership and organizational culture within WWE. In her forthcoming book “Our Fight,” scheduled for release on April 4, fans can expect a deeper dive into her career and more behind the scenes drama. Stay tuned to Ringside News for more!
