Ronda Rousey keeping it as real as it gets in the WWE
Ronda Rousey was once the biggest draw in mixed martial arts history. Then she moved on to the WWE, and appears to be doing it again. In her latest splash, Rousey put the WWE on blast, and there is debate as to whether it's real or not, which in the WWE is of course perfect.
The WWE has been trying to set up the first ever women's main event for WrestleMania, with Rousey, Charlotte Flair, and Becky Lynch each performing for the Raw women’s belt. Lynch has developed a Stone Cold Steve Austin persona, that works wonders on the mic, a critical area of rasslin' that Rousey has yet to master. A storyline has developed over the past couple of months, with Lynch lately getting "arrested" in Atlanta for barging into a RAW show. The scripted feud then carried onto the social network.
Ronda, you go back and get that BELT because I didn’t come this far to collect it from Stephaine. I came all this way to take it from you. pic.twitter.com/ap3Q6cBRP2— The Man (@BeckyLynchWWE) February 27, 2019
That’s what I’m trying to do dumbass. You hobbling around trying to be a ginger crutch ninja and taking fake prison photos in the hallway isn’t helping— Ronda Rousey (@RondaRousey) February 27, 2019
Keep that F word out of your mouth and concentrate on getting better at this business instead of trying to remain above it. Looking forward to seeing you real soon. pic.twitter.com/i52k4sFh2X— The Man (@BeckyLynchWWE) February 28, 2019
F word? You mean “fake”? Fake like your non sensical BS “armbar” that doesn’t even work and just looks like you’re holding the dick you wish you had? pic.twitter.com/dr6OklYces— Ronda Rousey (@RondaRousey) February 28, 2019
Huh, it *does* look exactly like one now that you mention it. pic.twitter.com/bHZfEGJRPF— The Man (@BeckyLynchWWE) February 28, 2019
Rebecca Quin, I don’t care what the script says, I’m beating the living shit out of you the next time I see you.— Ronda Rousey (@RondaRousey) February 28, 2019
Next Rousey released a vlog, claiming that professional wrestling isn't real.
“It wasn’t a promo they gave me other things to say I didn’t f***ing say it,” wrote Rousey, as transcribed by Jed Meshew for MMA Fighting. “It’s not a promo. It’s not an act. I’m not going out there and doing their f***ing act anymore. They can say it’s part of the act to try and save face but it’s not an act. I’m going out there and doing whatever the hell I want and they can explain it however they want, but f*** ‘em. Everybody. WWE Universe included. I meant that I’m going to disrespect the sport that they all love so much. ‘Oh don’t break kayfabe, Ronda!’ Wrestling is scripted. It’s made up. It’s not real. None of those b****es can f***ing touch me. The end.”
Then Charlotte Flair responded ably on the social network.
Can someone please remind Captain Badass here that her last two fights before coming to WWE ended with her unconscious and sobbing in the cage?— Charlotte Flair (@MsCharlotteWWE) March 8, 2019
Four years ago, you were untouchable. Now? Not so much.
You’re a class act, @RondaRousey
Then former actual rival Miesha Tate came out and said Rousey's outburst was real.
“It got under her skin. I know about this,” said Tate on @MieshaTate to @RyanMcKinnell on the war of words on social media and on WWE TV between Ronda Rousey and #TheMan @BeckyLynchWWE @BustedOpenRadio pic.twitter.com/garlXonkgz— MMA on SiriusXM (@MMAonSiriusXM) March 7, 2019
That would seem to indicate that there could be a degree of reality in here somewhere, BUT @MieshaTate be open to a @WWE run? Would she work with Ronda Rousey in the world of pro-wrestling? Miesha tells @realOCsports what the possibilities are when it comes to stepping into the squared circle. @BustedOpenRadio pic.twitter.com/16e0psHY4C— MMA on SiriusXM (@MMAonSiriusXM) February 1, 2018
