“I Re-Invented Myself During The Lockdown,” Ronda Rousey issues official lockdown statement

Ronda RouseyThe career of Ronda Rousey is one that can be described as illustrious, to say the least, whether that be in relation to Judo, Mix Martial Arts, or Professional Wrestling. Despite signing a three-year contract in 2018 with WWE, ‘Rowdy’ Ronda Rousey has been missing since last year’s WrestleMania.

 

On that night, she was defeated by Becky Lynch in a Triple Threat match, meaning her undefeated streak was over and she lost the Raw Women’s Championship. Fans have been playing the waiting game for Rousey’s return, and with Lynch being champion for nearly a full year now, many though feels she would have come back by now.

Well she’s discussed her future in her latest YouTube vlog and Ronda says, “With much of the world on lockdown as a response to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe, people are looking to enhance their indoor skills or learn some new ones altogether. I don’t know when I’m going to go back, but I am definitely re-inventing myself during the lockdown”.

Rousey is using her extra home time to hone her cookery techniques which she is sharing on social media for her fans to test out. “#RondasQuarantineKitchen is back with some more useful prepper skills like learning how to dehydrate meat and make your own homemade jerky!” she posted with a link to her YouTube channel.

Ronda Rousey also seems to be having fun as she conquers her fear of sharks. This was documented in Ronda Rousey Uncaged, which aired as part of Shark Week on the Discovery Channel in 2018. Shark attack survivor and dive instructor Paul de Gelder lead the mixed martial arts champ through encounters with a handful of the underwater meat-eaters.

“Ronda is obviously a world champion,” de Gelder said of the UFC Hall of Famer and WWE star. “She picked up information; she processed it. She did everything we asked to keep her safe.

And even though I was absolutely terrified of that last dive, where she’s about to feed the bull shark, I had to rely on the fact that I’d given her all the information I had. She was just such an elite athlete that she knows how to do it, she knows how to maintain her safety.”
