Without a doubt, Ronda Rousey is one of the most inspirational athletes in the history of sports around the USA and beyond. Moving on, she opted to enter the world of pro-wrestling, and thereafter, she transitioned to be one of the biggest star powers in the WWE. Prior to this, she was a cornerstone figure of the biggest MMA promotion, UFC.
Going by her accolade, it would be a lot easier for her to become a Hollywood celebrity, perhaps but she instead chose wrestling over everything else. She left the UFC business on a high note so that she could excel in those pro-wrestling moves.
Many of her fans do know that Ronda Rousey used to be the Strikeforce bantamweight champion in MMA before Strikeforce became UFC. The former MMA fighter was so famous in the heyday of her MMA career that she made it to the cover of ESPN The Magazine Body Issue in 2012. In this one, she dared to bare it all.
Ronda Rousey blasted Kim Kardashian for not being an ideal role model
In this feature issue by ESPN, Ronda Rousey was on a promotion spree, back then. During an interview for the same, she was asked about which celebrity she would like to beat up. In response, the current WWE Smackdown roster member said that she would beat the “crap” out of Kim Kardashian. Going by her comments she was pretty much upset about the reality TV star,
“I would beat the crap out of Kim Kardashian, actually. Oh, yeah, she is selling sketchers to some 13-year-old. I don’t want some girl whose entire fame is based on a sex video to be selling sketchers to my 13-year-old little sister. That’s why I’m doing things like this. Because people like Kim Kardashian are being pushed in my sister’s face and you know it’s just not healthy. She didn’t need to have role models like this.”
Back in the day, Ronda Rousey made history by becoming the first woman to sign with the UFC promotion. She was also in possession of an undefeated streak before finally retiring only to become a champion in the WWE.
After a long break from TV since Wrestlemania 35 in 2019, Ronda Rousey returned to WWE at Royal Rumble 2022 and won the Women’s Royal Rumble match. Then she captured the SmackDown Women’s Title by defeating Charlotte Flair in an I Quit Match at the WrestleMania Backlash premium live event back in May.
