Ronda Rousey proved that her bite is stronger than her bark when she was the forerunner of putting the UFC Women’s division on another level, getting to the point of becoming the main event of the show. Now, she is the WWE Raw Women’s Champion and is bringing this division to garner more mainstream attention, potentially to a main event match at WrestleMania 35.
With only a little less than eight months as a full-time competitor, Rousey has experienced what many others hope to achieve in a lifetime: a marquee WrestleMania match, No. 1 contendership, women’s title reign, and is still the champion three months later with no indication that this fairy tale-like year will end.
However, while Rousey is experiencing an ultimate natural high with her current WWE career, she recently voiced how the lack of taking care of her home as a reason why her WWE status could change.
In a recent Q&A session on her YouTube page, Rousey mourned the loss of one of her goats, and showed how her perspective could be changing regarding her WWE future.
“Sometimes I feel like I can’t do it all. I have to pick one thing. I can’t wrestle forever, because I feel like I’m failing my family… I just know I can’t be 100 percent committed to the ranch with all this WWE stuff, too. I can’t be fully committed to my family, I can’t cook you guys breakfast every morning, and it’s rough. Yeah I wouldn’t be leaving home unless it was doing the most fantastic things ever and I really, really do enjoy and love it. But, you know, like all the energy I spend on the WWE is energy that’s not spent on my family.”Advertisement
Despite her very emotional moment that caused her to reconsider her WWE future, her current status as the Raw Women’s Champion is causing her to attend numerous media appearances, and she will be defending the title against Nia Jax at the upcoming TLC pay-per-view on December 16.
