In fact, Rousey appears to be in the midst of a Twitter feud with all of the above stemming from comments made on Steve-O’s Wild Ride podcast.
“I love the WWE,” Rousey said.
“I had such a great time. I love all the girls in the locker room. Running out there and having fake fights for fun is just the best thing. I love choreography. I love acting. I love theater. Live theater and some of the last forms of live theater.”
It didn’t take long before Rousey’s former sistren in the women’s locker room responded:
Alexa Bliss’ tweet about being out for “almost a year” was in reference to a series of matches against Ronda Rousey at SummerSlam 2018 and Hell in a Cell 2018. After suffering multiple concussions from her matches with Rousey, Bliss missed a significant amount of time as her future began to come into question.
Bliss’ 2018 injuries became the subject of an IG Live group chat between Nia Jax, Paige, Peyton Royce, Billie Kaye, Natalya and Renee Young. While Rousey was never mentioned by name, all signs pointed to the polarizing former UFC star being the unnamed person in this story:
“Speaking of Natty saying a backbone, I remember back when… I’m not going to mention any names. But Lexie [Alexa Bliss], well other than Lexi’s name,” Jax said.
“[Bliss] was working an angle and she was seriously getting hurt. A certain angle with a certain somebody, and I remember not saying anything, specifically because she wanted to be a team player, like, she as so nervous, she wants to be a team player. She didn’t want to be somebody who, like, ‘Oh, I can’t do this.’”
Ronda Rousey being implicated by her peers as a potentially dangerous worker adds a touch of irony to a quickly developing feud that started over comments about fake fighting.
Never one to back down, Rousey instead doubled down:
Rousey’s continued animosity toward WWE culture reportedly stems from the night the Southern California native was booed and jeered in Los Angeles. Chants of “you deserve it” reigned down from the Staples Center despite Ronda Rousey taking a brutal beating from Charlotte Flair at WWE Survivor Series.
Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio theorized:
“I knew when the Los Angeles fans booed Ronda Rousey, and when that Charlotte Flair angle happened…I knew, that at that point, everything changed,” said Meltzer.
“Her and Shayna, their mentality was, coming in, that the UFC fans are the worst, and the WWE fans are the best…it was all going along well, until that angle.”
Rousey’s hardened stance led to a response from Jax, who this time made no efforts to mince words as to whom she was talking to. In fact, not only did Jax mention Ronda by name, she issued a threat:
