Ronda Rousey says wrestling is fake in Kayfabe-killing promo

Ronda Rousey Raw

Babyface Ronda is definitely no more.

The former UFC Champion goes off during her latest personal vlog, citing how wrestling is fake and throwing shade on the WWE Universe.

“It wasn’t a promo they gave me other things to say I didn’t f***ing say it. It’s not a promo. It’s not an act. I’m not going out there and doing their f***ing act anymore, I’m going out there and doing whatever the hell I want. And they can explain it however they want, but f***em. Everybody. WWE Universe included. I meant that I’m going to disrespect the sport that they all love so much. ‘Ohhhh don’t break kayfabe Ronda!’ Wrestling is scripted. It’s made up. It’s not real. None of those b****** can f***ing touch me. The end.”

So how does this rank with Ronda’s other promos? Best or worst?

    “None of those bitches can, Fing touch me..” says the chick who cried like a baby and let MMA, once she got knocked out. She cant hack it in MMA anymore and wrestling, just isnt for her. Time to let her fade away into the sunset.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I love it she has done amazing things her first year. But has a heel it seems like she taken her career to a whole new level in the WWE. Her promos are now interesting to watch enough of being a nice lady.

  • Matthew Carter

    I think it’s a work. This has Heyman and Russo all over it, and it’s going well with her heel turn from Raw.

    I thought she died. I will have to watch that documentary they released on the network again.

  • Neil Bryson

    It’s pig latin for “fake”. It’s an old carny term. Breaking kayfabe means exposing the business as not real.

  • Darrin Tyler

    I’m dead serious.

    She can’t keep up with the other ladies in-character, so her response is to trash it all to make her seem above it. This is, partially, because the WWE brought her in and made it known that they felt she was above all of their female athletes (basically, labeling her a REAL athlete).

    This is, mostly, because Ronda is immature and can’t handle that she’s a subpar sports entertainer despite the fact that she’s a talented athlete. She can’t handle that it takes more than physicality to be ranked above the Charlottes and Becky Lynchs of the industry.

    If you forgot, she is still under a UFC contract and could be using this to hype up one last run with the UFC. Or it could be more of Vince trolling everyone so that you blow your load when she loses the title on her way out.

  • oppa

    Years ago, she was a producer in WWE. You can find some old footage from the 80s of Kaye Fabe being listed as the producer of their shows. She stopped sometime in the 90s though.

  • Jessie L Williams II

    I second this.

    Are you being serious or sarcastic?

  • Darrin Tyler

    Wtf is kayfabe?

  • CC

    This is awful. Breaking kayfabe the way it was done with the HHH promo talking about Ric Flair using his real name actually works because while it does give a peak behind the curtain, it does not walk behind the curtain, kick all the tables over then crap on the floor. This Rousey “promo” (and I use that word loosely) does all of that and more.

    All it does is feed the trolls who feel the necessity to say this stuff all the time.

    By going out there and saying all of this, what does it do for her when she loses to a “fake” fighter?

    On a scale from 1 to 10, I’d rate this a “Who let Russo book this?”
