During an interview on Steve-O’s Wild Ride podcast where she derided WWE’s “ungrateful fans,” Rousey also casually called wrestling “fake fights,” which seems to have upset a few wrestlers on WWE’s roster.
“I love the WWE. I had such a great time. I love all the girls in the locker room. Running out there and having fake fights for fun is just the best thing,” Rousey said. “I love choreography. I love acting. I love theater.”
Lana and Alexa Bliss responded:
I have NO WORDS for her audacity to save “fake fighting” !!!!!! If it’s fake why can’t @RealPaigeWWE & @TJWilson can’t wrestle anymore ?? If it is fake why couldn’t @EdgeRatedR wrestle for 11 years ???? This is a contact sport where REAL things happen! https://t.co/cYvGpTjmci

Rousey then posted this:

And Nia Jax threatened to “knock her the f**k out.”
I can’t wait for Ronda 2 one day return 2 WWE. Even if WWE orders me to make Ronda look good in the ring, which is the ONLY way for Ronda 2 look good in the ring w/me. I’ll risk my job 2 go down in history as the one from this biz that knocked her the F**K out! #TestMeBitch

It’s beginning to seem like a work, even if it wasn’t originally intended to be.
