Up until recently, Mia Khalifa was known mostly for her work in the adult film industry than anything relevant she may have done outside of it. But, in an effort to branch out and capitalize on the celebrity of others, Khalifa has recently taken to both calling out athletes on social media and using her platform on the YouTube Channel Out of Bounds to gain a bit more notoriety.
What she's recently discovered is that she may have bitten off more than she can chew.
While on the show, Khalifa was asked for her opinion on Ronda Rousey joining the WWE. Her response was swift and scathing suggesting "this is where her (Rousey) career will go to die." She continued on by stating that she has no respect for the WWE because it isn't a real sport and that Rousey should have more dignity.
The irony in all this is that Khalifa is a porn star. The idea of lecturing someone on self-respect when one makes her career out of performing sexual acts on video is both odd and almost funny if it weren't so hypocritical. It was a point that former WWE Superstar Gregory "Hurricane" Helms was quick to point out on Twitter.

I’m not gonna get upset that a Porn Star doesn’t respect Pro Wrestling. She’s entitled to her opinion. Our bodies take a pounding. and well ... so does hers. 😁👍🏻 https://t.co/HGl4l6ksGG— Hurricane Helms (@ShaneHelmsCom) December 7, 2017
Khalifa's social media accounts also lit up with people calling her out for being so outside the bounds of moral and jumped on board with Helms in support of Rousey who could be the biggest female star the WWE has seen in years. Rousey stands to make potentially millions of dollars by aligning herself with the "sports entertainment" brand.
When pointed out Rousey stands to make a lot of money, Khalifa said in the video said she didn't look at it from a financial perspective, just as a self-respect one. This is also ironic considering the adult star has often taken to social media and publicly shared messages she's gotten from athletes in an effort to gain more publicity for herself. These messages were traps and ploys she set up to make these athletes look foolish. She's developed quite a reputation for this unethical tactic.
At the end of the day, Khalifa may not have much respect for WWE, but you can bet WWE fans have found a new enemy to "pound" into submission. Hopefully, she wanted this kind of attention because she's got it now. Stand back, there's a hurricane coming through.
