As she embarks on a career in pro wrestling, the question being constantly presented to Ronda Rousey involves MMA.
Rousey, a former UFC bantamweight champion, was a guest on “The Ellen Show” recently and was asked just that by host, Ellen DeGeneres.
“I don’t know,” Rousey said. “I think it’s just as likely as me going back to another Olympics for judo. No one demanded a written resignation from me for judo and I don’t really think the same thing is necessary for fighting. I’m just doing what I enjoy and WWE is what I enjoy right now.”
Prior to MMA, Rousey captured bronze in judo at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. She is set to appear at WrestleMania 34 on April 8 in New Orleans as part of a mixed tag team match with fellow former Olympian Kurt Angle vs. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
Rousey signed a deal with the WWE recently. Her last MMA fight came late in 2016 when she was finished by Amanda Nunes at UFC 207.
“It’s like a team,” Rousey said. “I’ve never been on a team my whole life. I was a swimmer, that was alone. I did judo, that was alone. I was a fighter, that was alone. With WWE, it’s like a big team. Everybody is working together to try to make it as great as possible.
“I’m nervous, but it’s not like Olympics nervous. The worst thing that’ll happen is I’ll look stupid, which is not the worst thing that could really happen. I can’t think of the last time I was so excited for anything. I’m really looking forward to it, you know what I mean?”
