The wrestling world has been reacting in a variety of ways on social media to Ronda Rousey's controversial comments about the wrestling business.
Just when you think the rivalry between Ronda Rousey and Becky Lynch can't get any hotter, the former goes and drops a video that has us all in awe. During the latest episode of Ronda On The Road, Rousey really let the wrestling world have it. The Raw Women's Champion claimed that she is no longer saying what WWE tells her to do, and proceeded to rant about pro wrestling being staged and "fake."
Fans have naturally been arguing over the legitimacy of the video ever since. Whether Rousey was told to cut such a scathing promo by WWE, or if she really has lost it and is fed up of the reactions she has been getting. Honestly, at this point, it could be either. The internet appears to be just as split over it as we are.
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
Wrestlers and others from the business have been taking to social media in their droves to give their two cents. The reactions of Lynch and Charlotte Flair have naturally garnered a lot of interest. Flair asked someone to remind Rousey of how poorly her last two matches in UFC went. Meanwhile, The Man once again put her photoshop skills to good use.

Considering Rousey threw pretty much the entire WWE women's division under the bus, many of her peers have reacted to the video too, Lacey Evans, Liv Morgan, and Ruby Riott all seem to be pretty hurt or annoyed by the comments. All three of those women, as well as a whole host of others being in the locker room this Monday for Raw, does not bode well for Rousey.
Lol my body is sore all the time ... that’s not fake. That’s real. https://t.co/xDMrhU2KIK— LIV Morgan 👅💙 (@YaOnlyLivvOnce) March 8, 2019
Whether you love it, hate it, think it's real, or is simply an elaborate plan being laid out by WWE, there is one thing that cannot be argued. It is doing its job. Not long ago fans were outraged that Lynch had been removed from her match at WrestleMania. Fast forward to now and we are all so distracted by a social media war that we don't care WWE will be putting on the triple threat it always wanted. Bring on Fastlane and whatever's next for this fiery rivalry.
