Her nemesis Becky Lynch is among those who have mocked the 2018 Raw Women’s Championship winner after she drew the ire of fans for slamming WWE.
Ronda Rousey is making headlines for the wrong reason after launching an expletive-laden rant in the latest episode of her “Ronda on the Road” vlog. The 32-year-old professional wrestler took aim at WWE in the video as she appeared to be disappointed by fans’ reactions after they have been booing her in recent months.
Ronda recently crashed a RAW segment featuring her nemesis Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair and Stephanie McMahon ahead of the Raw Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 35. “I did everything I could, everything I could to respect this business,” she said in her speech. “I worked my [expletive] off, and I exceeded every expectation. I poured my heart out and sacrificed my body for your entertainment.”
She then expressed her disappointment at fans, “And what’d you do, huh? You booed me out of the Staples Center in Los Angeles, my home. You cheer for Becky while I’m out here working my [expletive] off to entertain you. Well you know what? No. I’m done pretending. I am no longer here to entertain you.”
In the vlog, the 2018 Raw Women’s Champion claimed that she went “off-script” during this week’s RAW. “It’s not a promo, it’s not an act. I’m not going out there and doing their f***ing act anymore. I’m going out there and doing whatever the hell I want,” so she claimed.
Recalling her old match, the wrestler/actress said, “I mean, it was a hell of a [expletive] match. And I took a hell of a beating. And there wasn’t a person there that wasn’t completely fixated every single second. We completely stole the show, the whole card. And in the same venue where I fought Cat Zingano, at home, they booed me out of the stadium.”
“I meant that I’m going to disrespect the sport that they all love so much,” she continued. But what upset fans and fellow wrestlers the most was when she said that “wrestling is scripted. It’s made up. It’s not real.”
It didn’t take long for her rival Becky to react to Ronda’s rant. Calling Ronda “The Man,” she posted a picture of Ronda’s face being photoshopped on Britney Spears‘ body. The photo was taken during the singer’s breakdown in 2007 when she attacked paparazzi with an umbrella.

Fellow wrestler Charlotte Flair chimed in, “Can someone please remind Captain Bada** here that her last two fights before coming to WWE ended with her unconscious and sobbing in the cage? Four years ago, you were untouchable. Now? Not so much.” She sarcastically added, “You’re a class act, @RondaRousey.”

All Might Big Rus added, “Ronda’s new character is not real. She is playing a bada** but we all know she ain’t in REAL LIFE.”

Ronda has not responded to the backlash. She is set to appear at Sunday’s WWE Fastlane pay-per-view, which will feature Becky vs. Charlotte. Becky will be added to the Charlotte vs. Ronda WrestleMania 35 match if she wins.
