Ronda Rousey stirred controversy in the wrestling community when she departed WWE after her SummerSlam match against Shayna Baszler the previous year, taking a hiatus from professional wrestling. However, she has recently garnered attention by revealing surprising insights about her time in WWE. Rousey has now accused a WWE star of inappropriate behavior.

During her appearance on NewsNation, Ronda Rousey was asked if she had encountered any misconduct with Vince McMahon during her time in WWE. While she mentioned not experiencing it personally from Vince McMahon, she did discuss encountering inappropriate behavior within the company culture.

Rousey recounted an incident where someone in the writer’s room grabbed the string of her sweatpants without her consent while she was waiting to talk to Triple H in the writer’s room. Rousey expressed discomfort with the situation, especially since no one reacted to it as abnormal.

“Not Vince personally, towards me, but the company culture, definitely. One time I was waiting to go talk to Triple H in the writer’s room. I was standing there with Bruce Prichard and another one of the writers. This guy grabs the string of my sweatpants and no one reacts as if this is abnormal. He grabs it and starts going down the hall and I’m like, ‘What the f*** was that? Why are you grabbing the string of my sweatpants?


“If my husband was standing here next to me, would you feel comfortable walking up to me and grabbing the string of my sweatpants?’ Nobody around me acted as if it was abnormal. All the guys around me were just like it’s part of the day. I’m like, if this guy is coming up to me and doing this kind of stuff to me where there are other people around, what’s happening to these other girls when it’s not in a hallway. That really put me on edge to where not only is this behavior prevalent, but it’s so prevalent that people don’t even realize it’s a problem anymore.”

When asked who it was, Rousey replied, “I know exactly what he looks like and I’m blanking on his name. Is this part of my concussion test?”

Ronda Rousey then confirmed the perpetrator as Drew Gulak, and confronted him about his actions, warning him against similar behavior in the future. Rousey’s experience led her to question the culture within WWE and what behaviors were considered acceptable towards women in the hallways and elsewhere.

“Drew Gulak. Drew Gulak, that’s who it was. I confronted him later and I was like, ‘If I ever hear about you putting your hands on any other woman like this or doing anything like this to me ever again, we’re going to have a problem.’ He was like, ‘No, no, no. I’m glad you said something to me.’ He really backpedaled, but it put a sour taste in my mouth about the culture there and what’s considered acceptable on how to touch and treat the women in the hallways, and anywhere.”

Ronda Rousey has also retired from professional wrestling for good, but has been labeled bitter woman for her anti-WWE remarks. We’ll have to wait and see what’s next in store for Ronda Rousey.
