Is Ronda Rousey’s Meltdown on WWE Fans Real or Fake?

The Ronda Rousey Story: Through My Father’s Eyes ⭐️⭐️⭐️

The phrase: don’t bite the hand that feeds seem to be apt for the vitriol at “ungrateful fans” from Ronda Rousey — if it’s real.

That’s the question with pro wrestling: how much of what you’re seeing is and isn’t real?

You might have heard Rousey’s name, the former UFC badass that was the master of the arm bar submission. She lost her last two bouts, retired and went to pro wrestling.

I haven’t followed her career in wrestling, but have seen stories here and there suggesting she’s been doing well there, and good for them.

Until I saw this story that she’s tired of the road and, perhaps, truly disgruntled with fans.

“So it’s just like … what am I doing it for if I’m not being able to spend my time and energy on my family, but instead spending my time and my energy on a bunch of f*cking ungrateful fans that don’t even appreciate me? I love performing. I love the girls. I love being out there … but, at the end of the day, I was just like, ‘F*ck these fans, dude.’ My family loves me and they appreciate me and I want all my energy to go into them.

Ronda Rousey Says She Won’t Return Full-Time, Blames Ungrateful Fans

Ouch. I’m guessing this won’t go well with wrestling fans. Or maybe it will, as she’s turning into a WWE villain.

You can watch Ronda Rousey’s documentary on Netflix — click the title link at the start of this post for my review — and learn more about her time before she went to wrestling. There’s a good story there.

As for melting down against fans? I can’t really comment, because I don’t know if it’s real angst or a con job to rile up the fans (so more ticket sales will be generated). After all, the “Rowdy” in Ronda’s fighting name came from one of the best rile-em-up masters in wrestling: Rowdy Roddy Piper.

Ronda is now battling with another female wrestler, Nia Jax, in a war of words outside the ring:

“Anyone who is outraged by me calling pro wrestling ‘fake fights for fun’ has never been in a REAL fight,” Rousey wrote. “While you all are tip toeing around bruising some pro wrestlers’ huge soft egos – no one is thinking about all the REAL fighters you’re insulting when pretending pro wrestling is somehow on the same level of realism. Yes, I understand, wrestling 300 days a year for years on end is incredibly tough on the body and a difficult profession – but do you know what would happen if you got in 300 REAL fights in a year? You would be dead.”

The escalating ruse paving Ronda Rousey’s path toward WWE return

Hype or real? I don’t know. Usually you don’t see the wrestlers using the four letter F-word that ends with an ‘e’ instead of a ‘k’, so maybe this is real. What Ronda describes as a grueling physical run for the sport is real, the people involved are all in very good shape actors who spend a lot of time on the road working. Fans that love the sport and are very passionate about it are real, too. It’s fun entertainment to watch, especially when there are spirited personalities.

  1. I think it’s fake. Getting some cheap heat for the comeback! But that being said…I think Rousey has always been easy to dislike, and it’s not carefully curated like other wrestlers. She doesn’t doesn’t come off well.

  2. I never liked how they marketed rousey. If you want it to be realistic then she should have been a midcarder. Because like you said she lost her last two fights against people the same size as her. so nia jax should have destroyed her. Ken shamrock was in wwe and he was never the top guy, if wwe is saying that a retired washed up mma fighter can come in and dominate then they are saying that their fighters aren’t on an elite level. Hell it’s your make believe world, put over your stars and have them crush rousey. makes the product look bad that she only lost once and quickly became champion. Hi there. I am going around the neighborhood introducing myself. My name is Marc. My blog contains excerpts from my book The Driveway Rules. It contains memoirs about growing up with undiagnosed autism. I hope you stop by.

    1. Hi Marc – thank you for stopping by. I like your line of thinking. Rousey’s rise and fall story in MMA is compelling. Maybe she’s following a similar arc (come in on top, fall, become heel, turn into hero again). Some wrestlers have had character arcs like this. Maybe Rousey wants to be the heel so when she comes back as Mr. Blue suggested above, she’ll work that negative energy? I subscribed to your blog. Happy blogging to you!
