Becky Lynch and others respond to Ronda Rousey saying wrestling isn’t real

To say Ronda Rousey’s latest video irked a few people would be a bit of an understatement. On her YouTube channel, the RAW Women’s Champion went off on a rant and, essentially, called out the WWE and its fans before calling the sport as a whole “made up.”

This isn’t the first time Rousey has angered the WWE Universe for calling something fake. Recently, in a heated exchange on Twitter between herself and Becky Lynch, she called the former SmackDown Women’s Champion’s Dis-arm-her fake. Apparently, Lynch’s response to that remark was what set Rousey off.

Rousey’s tirade seems to have caught the attention of several superstars who were frustrated with how she talked about the business as a whole. Along with Lynch, we saw Rusev, Ruby Riott, and more go after the champion.

While she didn’t specifically target Rousey, Banks retweeted a previous post from February prior to her and Bayley winning the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles.

Regardless of if it was part of the plan or not, the message has definitely rubbed fans and wrestlers alike the wrong way.

    Only from your mouth. I can tell that you are liked very little in the real world. Don’t insult my intelligence. I’m old enough to be your dad’s beer drinking wing man.

    WWE is fixed, entirely made up. Kind of like movies and television shows.

    WWE couldn’t possibly be completely real, no one would survive!

  • Rinn13

    Well kid, then you sir, are what is wrong with modern pro wrestling. Congrats!

  • Soulshroude

    The fact that you think “she didn’t deserve” is time consuming and pointless. She works for the WWE, one of the worlds largest corporations. Therefore, it really doesn’t matter what you think she did or didn’t “deserve”.

    Well most of the current wwe roster don’t deserve to be in wwe, but that’s all the “talent” available it seems, which is really sad

  • rob

    Lol, these wrestlers getting offended by this, they don’t even try to make it seem real anymore, most of them can’t even stay somewhat in character in social media and they have a problem with this? Just a bunch of hipocrites

    So in a simple sum up, this audience thinks that Ronda has turned into a “snob”, who is embarrassing herself through this type of “work”, while insulting Roddy Piper at the same time, even though he acknowledge himself before his death that wrestling was scripted and he, himself wanted out? Which is why he entertained himself at Comicon’s Nationwide (I know, I have a very good friend who was best friends with him as a fellow Bag-Piper, with pictures to prove it).

    Either way… I’d personally much rather see Ronda, rather than Charlotte (spoon fed bimbo) or “the man” (symbol for women, everywhere… give me a break) wrestle in the Squared Circle, any day. Why? Because most Diva’s, Women wrestlers, can’t wrestle at all and are only there to show TnA, and to try and show people just how “ring worthy” women may become.

    Glorified and all that crap. That’s all the industry has become. Glorified and pandering to anyone who gives them a buck or a few. The new Gladiator arena and a Circus joke.

    If they still go ahead with the rumored “First Women’s Main Event”, this makes it even more of a sick joke. Rousey in no way deserves that kind of honor and accolade.

  • Rinn13

    She didn’t deserve to voice Sonya (or anyone in MK for that matter), and she never deserves to be in WWE either. And I say that as someone who has not been big on WWE in general the last many years.

  • Rinn13

    She came to this “Circus Act” because her stupid ass can’t fight anymore. She finally got better competition, and surprise surprise, she started losing, badly. So she thinks “hey, wrestling is fake, I could make big money easy there!” and that’s precisely what she’s done. She doesn’t know a damn thing about pro wrestling, she doesn’t care about its history or its fans, and she’s literally just there to make one last big payday. Which, much like Brock Lesnar, she’s undeservedly getting, being paid FAR more than any other female on the roster, I’m sure. And now the clown who claims to wear a ripoff of Roddy Piper’s gear, because she’s a “big fan of his”, craps all over the business and spits in the face of everyone who has put her over, by saying “Wrestling is Scripted”.

    It doesn’t matter that it IS pre-determined outcomes. Any idiot these days knows that. But it’s still disrespectful as hell, to say that publicly, to basically dump on the business that is making you rich, while you steal every other hard working wrestlers’ spotlight. And no, that isn’t just me commenting on a dumb “angle”, or her “character”. At the end of the day, this has been Rousey, for real, the entire time. She was a trash person in UFC, she’s still a trash person in WWE.

  • Keith Learmonth

    No one forced her to be there. She could always just pull a CM Punk and sit out her contract…

  • Keith Learmonth

    Stop letting Vince Russo book this sh*t.

  • Soulshroude

    She’s right, but where in the WWE Universe does it state that we’re angry at her? If anything, she is an absolute hero for standing up for herself against a very and clearly scripted story line based circus act what pays it’s wrestlers millions of dollars just to be monkey’s in a very dangerous, injury prone environment.

    I really have no time for Rousey. Yes she has improved in the ring over the last year, but she is still incredibly limited on what she can do and I hate her promos, no matter which side of the heel/face fence she is on.
    I cannot 100% blame her how this angle has degenerated as that is down to booking, but even so, her promos are really putting me off.

    One thing I do wonder about her though is why she does not get a proper fitting wrestling attire. I have never seen a female wrestler constantly rearranging her shorts like she has a pair of balls down there. That Sonia Blade outfit she wore at the Rumble was far more fitting and she was not constantly adjusting it.
