Ronda Rousey is possibly the biggest name to make her way from the world of combat sports to professional wrestling. She wasted no time adapting to WWE’s style of pro wrestling.
After returning to WWE during the Royal Rumble this year, Rousey feuded with Charlotte Flair. Their first encounter this year was at WrestleMania 38, where Rousey challenged for Flair’s WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship. However, she was unable to beat Flair.
While speaking on her Vlog, Rousey was asked about her WrestleMania 38 match against The Queen. Rousey stated that she believes the match will become a cult classic.
“The first time I watched the match it was on my phone with the sound off when I was trying to put Po to sleep. She was feeding. I was like, ‘Hmm.’ Then I watched it again later and was like, ‘Oh.’ I think it’s going to be like one of those cult classic matches. It’s going to be like The Labyrinth of matches. When it first came out, everyone was like, ‘What the hell? Why does David Bowie have a giant codpiece and talking to our children?’ Later, you realize something awesome about it every time and it kind of makes it one of your favorite movies ever. I sometimes need to watch it and sing ‘You Remind Me Of The Babe.’ That’s what I feel like that match. Every time you watch it, you’ll catch something new about it. Re-watchability is something that is very important in movies. The Labyrinth, case in point.”
Ronda Rousey is set to challenge Liv Morgan for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at Extreme Rules. We will have to wait and see whether FLair will return during the event or not.
