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.

I’ve said it before….the #RiottSquad is the change that this division needs, cause everyone else seems to have lost their damn minds.

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.
