Ronda Rousey is for many, the biggest name to transition from MMA to pro wrestling. The Baddest Woman on the Planet signed a contract with WWE in 2018 and became a top star in record time. Rousey was given props for a good reason.
Ronda Rousey returned during the Royal Rumble Premium Live Event this year. Being such a huge name, she certainly helped draw more fans to the product.
While speaking with Danial Ali from DropKick Podcast, Tyson Kidd gave Ronda Rousey huge props for elevating the WWE women’s division.
“It’s really great to see like almost part two of Ronda’s WWE career, like we saw that first run for Wrestlemania 34 to 35. And it was awesome! You know, she had a hell of a run and now in the three years she’s been gone, the game’s changed quite a bit. You know, she definitely lit a spark and definitely helped elevate the women’s division as a whole, that first run in big time. I don’t know, like I don’t know all the inner workings as much as people maybe think I do. I don’t know if the women would have main evented that first time without Ronda being involved.”
Ronda Rousey will be squaring off against Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania Backlash. It remains to be seen whether Rousey will win the match or not.
