Ronda Rousey is currently one of the biggest names in WWE. UFC often propels the fighters into celebrities, but Rousey had it made even before. While she transitioned from her UFC career at an immensely high point of popularity, she was extremely famous even before.
Rousey was the Strikeforce bantamweight champion. The former MMA fighter was so famous that she made the cover of ESPN The Magazine Body Issue in 2012. The star looks incredibly stunning on the cover.
The WWE superstar is known for having very strong opinions. It seems this has always been the case, as she expressed a very strong opinion about Kanye West’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian.
Rousey’s ESPN featurette had an event for her, where Rousey was in an interview. When she was asked about which celebrity would you like to beat up, the star said that she would beat the “crap” out of Kim Kardashian.
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. And that’s why I’m doing stuff like ESPN Body because someone needs to do it.
Rowdy was so popular back in the day that she made history by becoming the first woman to sign with the UFC. Ronda Rousey recently made her return in WWE, surprisingly winning the Royal Rumble. She revealed that she couldn’t enjoy it when the crowd welcomed her with cheers instead of boos.
