During the most recent episode of Busted Open Radio, Mark Henry came to Ronda Rousey’s defense regarding her comments about the WWE fans not respecting her. Here’s what he had to say:
She’s 100% right. We should appreciate Ronda Rousey and all the people that have come to WrestleMania that were not wrestlers. Yes, you’re judged by a different grade, but every now and then, you get one or two or three people, like a Ronda Rousey or Kurt Angle, who come into the sport and they’re so damn good, what would it have looked like if they had been in forever?
The fans paid money to see her fail, because that’s what our fans do. We want to see if somebodies going to come into our business, and they’re going to be able to cut it. Well Ronda Rousey put both fingers up to the world as it relates to ‘I’ll show you,’ she showed everybody,” he said. “She showed everybody that she was equally as good, equally as passionate about pro wrestling then every women that came before her. And all she wanted was an atta boy, a pat on the back, ‘good going girl, and probably about 90% of our fans gave her that, but it’s that 10% that made Ronda Rousey not want to do pro wrestling full-time…Ronda Rousey is a winner in under three years. Pay Ronda more respect and maybe we can get her more.
