WWE executive Paul Levesque told TMZ that WWE wants Ronda Rousey back once she’s ready to return. “Of course, we want her,” Levesque said. “Of course, we do. One of the greatest performers for us ever.”
Levesque also addressed her recent complaints bout “f—ing ungrateful fans. “I think Ronda’s in a place in her personal life where she’s figuring some things out,” he said. “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 will light up the fans that love the business?” Read more at TMZ.com.
Powell’s POV: There’s nothing surprising about WWE wanting Rousey back, and the way he framed her comments about the fans is fair. Rousey went on hiatus from the company with the goal of starting a family with her husband Travis Browne. It would be interesting to see how Rousey would be booked by WWE now that her storyline rival Becky Lynch is on leave after announcing her pregnancy.
She’s a great legitimate fighter, but she’s also shown she’s mentally unable to face of any kind of adversity and she’s more dangerous and incompetent than even Nia Jax in the ring. She brings a one time pop type of value, but there’s nothing to suggest she should be working on a regular basis.
Also it doesn’t take a year to get pregnant? What an odd duck Rhonda is
Rousey stays gone, I hope. She’s dangerous. She hurt Alexa more than once to get herself over as this killer fighter. She should thank Alexa for making her.
As for the comments, I don’t even care. I’ve always hated Ronda, and felt she was a crying piece of garbage. She’d have a hard time getting me to hate her anymore.
I’ve never understood why WWE would take a washed up had been yesterday’s news fight and make her invincible as a wrestler. This is a slap in the face to those women wrestlers who have busted their butts and given all they have for that company. And then to add her fake comments… she is despicable and i for one cannot stand her and won’t watch her. If she is so great then let her go back to the real fights and get her ass whipped again.
i like Ronda when she was in wwe but i think its over neither she or wwe would gain anything by a return.
the best thing wwe could do for womens wrestling is unify there womens titiles.
on a broader note i want the brocks, rondas, takers eg out of the ring. the people who put the work in are the people i want to see mainevent wwe ppvs. the only time wwe did this is when Hogan and warriour left in the nineties. it eventually led to stonecold steve austin
