Ronda Rousey is really enjoying her WWE career.
The former UFC women’s bantamweight champion signed with the company earlier this year. She burst onto the professional wrestling scene in April. Rousey teamed up with Hall Of Famer and RAW General Manager Kurt Angle at WrestleMania 34.
The pair of former Olympians defeated Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in a Mixed Tag Team match. Rousey got her first singles nod for a WWE Title at the Money In The Bank (MITB) pay-per-view (PPV).
She challenged Nia Jax for the RAW Women’s Championship. Just when Rousey looked to be on the verge of winning the title, her match was interrupted by Alexa Bliss. Bliss, the MITB briefcase winner at the time, attacked both Jax and Rousey.
Bliss cashed-in her briefcase and left Chicago with the RAW Women’s Title. Rousey will get her shot at redemption this weekend. She’ll challenge Bliss for the RAW Women’s Title at SummerSlam from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday.
Rousey recently did an interview with ESPN to talk about her WWE career. “The Rowdy One” noted that she’s absolutely loving her life in WWE right now. In fact, she loves it so much she’s thinking about prolonging her current run.
Upon initially signing on with WWE, the two sides agreed to a set timeframe for Rousey’s run. Now Rousey is thinking about prolonging that and said she understands why some people have such a hard time leaving the industry:
“I love this way more than I ever thought I would,” Rousey said. “We had a set timeline set, and now we aren’t so sure about it because I love it so much.
“I guess that’s the best thing that could’ve happened, that I would love it so much, it would be so hard to stop. I can see why people have a hard time leaving this industry because it’s such a joy to be a part of every day.”
