The last 90 seconds of the latest episode of Ronda On The Road features Ronda Rousey taking some pretty extreme verbal shots at WWE and pro wrestling as a whole.
WWE loves nothing more than a rivalry being red hot right around this time of year. We are now less than a month away from WrestleMania and things between Ronda Rousey and Becky Lynch couldn't be any hotter. Well, we keep thinking and saying that, but then somehow, the two of them manage to take it up to yet another level.
The two of them have been exhibiting that next level on social media for the last couple of weeks. That grey area where fans aren't sure what is real and what isn't where pro wrestling is often at its best. That continued on Raw this week as Rousey beat down Lynch to close the show. Some of those punches looked incredibly stiff and considering The Rowdy One is a former UFC Champion, they likely hurt The Man quite a bit.
Rousey was clearly still pretty riled up after the show when she filmed the latest episode of her vlog, Ronda On The Road. Someone behind the camera attempted to ask the Raw Women's Champion about her promo, and that's where the rant begins. "It wasn’t a promo they gave me other things to say I didn't f***ing say it. It’s not a promo. It’s not an act," Rousey explained. You can watch the video in full (the stuff about WWE starts at around the 10:30 mark) but be warned because as you might have guessed, it contains language that some might find offensive.
Rousey goes on to say that the person we saw on Raw and will see on WWE television from now on is not an act. Also, while WWE seems to enjoy teasing that what happens in the ring and on screen is not real, they aren't as forward as Rousey is about it in the clip above. "Wrestling is scripted. It’s made up. It’s not real. None of those b****es can f***ing touch me." Strong stuff.
Now comes the debate over whether the above is really still a part of the act or not. If everything Rousey says in the video was pre-planned and a way of making her the most despised heel in all of WWE then kudos to all involved. Once more and more fans get wind of this, whether they believe it to be a shoot or not, they will not be cheering her on Raw or beyond. If it was not pre-planned and Rousey really thinks those things, good luck to her in the locker room going forward.
