Ronda Rousey is possibly the biggest name to make her way from the world of combat sports to professional wrestling. Transitioning from the MMA world, Rousey didn’t take long to get used to WWE’s style of pro wrestling.

Ronda Rousey eventually became the RAW Women’s Champion and held the title at WrestleMania 35. She was absent for a long time after that and returned during the Royal Rumble this year.

While speaking on the Wives of Wrestling podcast, Ronda Rousey revealed details about her first WWE contract. She also gave details about her meeting with Triple H.

“So then my agent Brad set up a meeting with me and Triple H, being like, ‘oh would you like to this,’ kind of thing. I was like, ‘yeah,’ but I didn’t know what I was getting into, I didn’t think I would be able to have any actual matches on my own. I didn’t know what live shows were, I didn’t know that was a thing.

So, I ended up becoming like a, give a mouse a cookie situation. Where I was like, ‘okay, I’ll do this fun wrestling thing before me and Trav have a baby.’ It was kind of like a bucket list, okay let me go do some WWE stuff for a year or whatever before we have a baby. Because at first, I was like, ‘oh yeah, by November we want to go off and have a baby,’ and they were like, ‘oh well, we kind of do things from WrestleMania to WrestleMania, so could you extend it to the next WrestleMania?'”

Ronda Rousey is also expected to defeat Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania Backlash next month. We will have to see if she will win the title or not.
