  • In a recent interview with Cageside Seats, Rousey discussed her experience with the promotion. She was open about how unpleasant her experience working under Vince McMahon had been, expressing her displeasure with the way women on the roster were handled in comparison to men.

 

  • Rousey said to Cageside Seats, “I just didn’t wanna be Vince’s action f****** figure anymore.” “I had the impression that I was making custom matches for a f****** sicko in the rear.” Kudos to the girls who continue to put up a strong fight. However, I’m now in my mid-30s. I have work to do.

  • McMahon resigned from his positions with TKO and WWE earlier this year in response to a lawsuit alleging he was involved in sex trafficking. This occurred during Rousey’s tenure with the organization. In that case, he declared his retirement following a Wall Street Journal article claiming he had paid $12 million in hush money to multiple women to whom he had allegedly committed sexual misconduct.

 

  • McMahon left the WWE for a short time—just six months—before joining the company again as a board member. According to Rousey, McMahon was still employing influential people within the organization to pull strings on his behalf even after he left. In a January social media post, she referred to Bruce Prichard as McMahon’s “avatar.” She clarified this assertion in a recent interview.

  • Regarding McMahon, Rousey remarked, “He was never gone while I was there.” “All he was doing was calling it in via Bruce Prichard.” I was told, “You know, he’s completely gone now, I swear,” by my WME agent. And I’m thinking, because everyone says he left earlier, I’ll believe it when I see it. He didn’t ever go. He arrived via text message.

  • Rousey had a more upbeat response when questioned about how WWE now manages its women’s wrestling division. The former UFC Bantamweight Champion stated that she preferred her stint in the organization end now rather than earlier and expressed satisfaction with the reforms Paul Levesque was implementing.

 

  • “I’m so relieved that things are starting to improve,” she remarked. “Triple H has shown amazing support and genuine belief in the women in the industry. I was there because of him, because he had faith in me. I sincerely hope that Vince was gone and Triple H was in charge for my final run. The entire Cageside Seats interview also covers Rousey’s move from mixed martial arts to professional wrestling, her last WWE matches, and her reflections on her several Wrestlemania appearances. The complete narrative is available here.
