Ronda Rousey made some headlines recently when she called wrestling ‘fake’ in an interview. Her apparent views have sparked a lot of negative reactions from fans and during a recent interview, WWE vice president Triple H commented on the matter.
The Game spoke to TMZ Sports where he talked about a number of things and also discussed Rousey’s training and a possible WWE return for the former UFC star.
Triple H first addressed Ronda’s controversial remarks about wrestling being ‘fake fights for fun’ and he asked the question if the former champion is really attacking the business:
“I think Ronda’s in a place in her personal life where she’s figuring some things out, but the thing with Ronda is, you never know what she is saying. Is she attacking the business, really, or is she attacking the business because she knows that’s what lights up the fans that love the business, that are gonna wanna see you?”
The Game then also commented on the possibilities of Rousey’s return after her previous successful stint. Triple H said that she will return when she is ready:
“She’s a thoroughbred. You gotta put a jockey and pull the reins or they’ll run themselves to death, right? And that’s what she is. Yeah, when she is ready, we still have a great relationship on everything, and when she is ready… absolutely.”
During the interview, Triple H also praised the work ethics of Rousey and told a story about how she continued training for her debut even while she was dealing with food poisoning. You can check out his interview in the video below:
