Ronda Rousey on WWE: “I Love it So Much”

"I can see why people have a hard time leaving this industry" the former UFC star said.

UFC Hall of Famer Ronda Rousey recently made the switch to WWE – and she is loving it.

The 31-year-old, who was dominant during her first Monday Night Raw performance, originally had a “set timeline” for her tenure as a wrestler because of her desire to start a family.

However, things have gone so well for Rousey in the ring that she is now rethinking that plan.

“I love this way more than I ever thought I would,” she told ESPN. “I guess that’s the best thing that could’ve happened, that I would love it so much, it would be so hard to stop. I can see why people have a hard time leaving this industry because it’s such a joy to be a part of every day.”

Since making her debut at the Royal Rumble in January, the former UFC star has become one of WWE’s most popular performers and her upcoming match on Sunday against Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam for the Women’s Championship is expected to draw lots of attention.

Rousey also is in the Mark Wahlberg vehicle, Mile 22, which opens in theaters on Friday.
