Ronda Rousey reveals that everyone had low expectations from her WrestleMania match

Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey has been in the WWE for a short time but she’s already a beloved Superstar. People were obviously sceptical of her transition from MMA to pro-wrestling but Rousey has proved her naysayers wrong. However, Rousey revealed in an interview with Chris Van Vliet that no one expected anything big from her Wrestlemania debut.

Rousey claimed that everyone assumed that she’d only be able to master one thing. She said that the building up for her debut in public eye might have been tougher had she not received guidance from the WWE.

h/t to for the transcript

I think that going into any new career like wrestling or acting or anything like that, a lot of people assume you can only be really good at one thing and if you master one thing you’ll never be able to master anything else as well. There’s a lot of low expectations going into things and it’s harder to learn with the world watching opposed to being able to learn in private. But you know, it comes with the territory. It makes things a little bit more difficult but it also I think helps me improve quicker. My first match was at¬†WrestleMania¬†[…] it’s like yeah, I’m hitting the ground running but I have all the best tools in front of me and I’m really lucky.

    Do you even know what you’re talking about most of the time?!

    I wonder if she still has poor hygiene, I wouldn’t want to work with her if she does.

    Damn right people had low expectations, because she never wrestled a match in her life. Yes, she did look ok in the ring, not “AMAZING” like some people claim. Considering she mostly fought Stephanie, who isn’t much of a wrestler herself, it wasn’t hard to “look good”. And they probably all went over that match, practicing it in the ring, step by step, many times over, so she’d know what to do.

    She isn’t BAD in the ring. That still doesn’t mean she belongs in pro wrestling, let alone being pushed to the moon by WWE just on the virtue of what she did in UFC (before she started losing). If SHE is the first woman wrestler to main event a WM, that is going to be, quite frankly, an insult to the entire industry. Why? Because she hasn’t earned it. She didn’t work to get there. She decided to do WWE because she started sucking at UFC, end of story.

    She needs more ring time. She needs to be working single matches on RAW and house shows.
