Ronda Rousey SLAMS “f**king ungrateful fans”

"what am I doing it for if I’m not being able to spend my time and energy on my family?"

When asked about her career in the WWE, it’s safe to say Ronda Rousey wasn’t doing it for fans of the organisation. 

When former UFC champion Ronda Rousey transitioned to the WWE it seemed like the perfect fit. Her last two losses in MMA were devastating knockout losses, and the WWE gave her the opportunity to be around an environment that would be similar yet different. While she initially had a lot of success, it seems she certainly wont be making a full time return.

Why? Apparently Rousey doesn’t feel appreciated by the fans. In an interview with Steve-O, Rousey went into detail on as to why she doesn’t see a full time WWE return looming.


“I love the WWE,” Rousey said. “I had such a great time. I love all the girls in the locker room. But I was doing basically part-time and I was away from home 200 days out of the year, and when I did get home, I was so sleep deprived cause you just don’t have time to lay down.”

“So it’s just like … what am I doing it for if I’m not being able to spend my time and energy on my family?” Rousey continued. “But, instead I’m spending my time and my energy on a bunch of f**king ungrateful fans that don’t even appreciate me?

“I love performing. I love the girls. I love being out there,” Rousey concluded. “But, at the end of the day, I was just like, ‘F**k these fans, dude.’

“My family loves me and they appreciate me and I want all my energy to go into them. So that was my decision at the end of the day. It’s like, ‘Hey girls. Love what you’re doing. I’m gonna try and take all my momentum and push you guys as far as I can … fly little birds, fly! I’m going f**king home!’ And that was basically it.”

It’s not completely apparent if there’s something specific Rousey is referring to. For the most part her time in the WWE seemed relatively well received. However it’s clear that Rousey doesn’t feel respected, regardless, in which it may be best to simply part ways with the WWE.

Was Ronda Rousey too harsh on her fans?
