Former MMA and WWE superstar Ronda Rousey issued a statement on her Twitter earlier today responding to the backlash she received after her comments on the Wild Ride! podcast, when she referred to the sport of wrestling as “fake fighting.” WWE stars jabbed at Rousey on social media, including Alexa Bliss who was injured by Rousey at a live event back in 2018.
Anyone who is outraged by me calling pro wrestling “fake fights for fun” has never been in a REAL fight. While you all are tip toeing around bruising some pro wrestlers’ huge soft egos-no one is thinking about all the REAL fighters you’re insulting when pretending pro wrestling is somehow on the same level of realism. Yes, I understand, wrestling 300 days a year for years on end is incredibly tough on the body and a difficult profession-but do you know what would happen if you got in 300 REAL fights in a year? You would be dead.
