Ronda Rousey made waves in the wrestling world when she departed from WWE after her SummerSlam match against Shayna Baszler the previous year, choosing to take a hiatus from professional wrestling. However, she has recently garnered attention by sharing unexpected revelations about her tenure in WWE. Eric Bischoff has now labeled her as a “bitter, angry woman” in response to these revelations.

In her forthcoming book “Our Fight,” scheduled for release on April 4, Ronda Rousey delves into her WWE experiences, providing candid insights into her tenure with the company. Notably, she directs strong language towards Bruce Prichard and John Laurinaitis, expressing her frustrations by telling them to go ‘f*** themselves.’ Ronda Rousey even alleged that WWE discriminated against women.

While speaking on the latest 83 Weeks podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff shared his thoughts on Ronda Rousey’s recent comments about Vince McMahon and her time in WWE.

Bischoff admitted to never having had a high opinion of Ronda, praising her MMA background but criticizing her transition to WWE and her character portrayal. He felt she was miscast as a babyface and believed she lacked passion for wrestling, seeing her involvement as primarily motivated by money.


Bischoff likened her recent comments to her reaction after her loss to Holly Holm in UFC, describing her as bitter and angry. He speculated that she may be trying to generate attention for her upcoming book but expressed doubt about the impact of her remarks.

“I’ve never had never had a real high opinion of Ronda anyway. I mean, in MMA I did. I really, really enjoyed watching her. Nothing but respect for her background in judo and the fact that she could transition into MMA and did really well for a while, but when she got knocked out by Holly Holm, that was it. That changed her dramatically. Even her character, her personality, her character in the UFC, she was just whiny.”

“When they brought her into WWE and made her a babyface, it didn’t make sense to me because she’s not a babyface. She’s a much, much better heel, but they wanted to cast her as a babyface. It was a square peg in a round hole for Ronda because she’s not a performer. She’s not an actress, although she’s done some acting and she’s getting better, but for the most part, she’s an athlete trying to become a performer, at least she was in WWE and she wasn’t able to pull it off.”

”So number one, she was miscast and I never really felt like she really wanted to be there. I always had this feeling. It doesn’t mean I’m right about it, but it was just my feeling that she was in it for the payday. She wasn’t really passionate about what she was doing. I think when Holly Holm knocked her out, she lost her passion for just about everything. She was there for the money. That was my impression, however right or wrong.”

Ringside News exclusively reported WWE’s internal reaction to Ronda Rousey’s smear campaign. Regardless, Ronda Rousey will likely never return to WWE again and perhaps that is for the best.
