• Ronda Rousey Reveals What She Would Do If She Didn’t Join WWE
During a recent interview with ESPN, Ronda Rousey talked about her desire to live in isolation in the woods and falling out of love with MMA.
Below are the highlights:
On her desire to live in isolation in the woods:
“I could very happily be in some house in the mountains and never see anyone again, hang out with my goats and chickens. It would have to be something as great as the WWE to make me this happy, to pull me away. Otherwise, no one would hear from me. I would live in the woods and be happy. That’s all I really want.”
On falling out of love with MMA:
“In judo and MMA, there were times when the process was fun and the results were fun. And there’s a time when things run their course. You fall in love, you fall out of love and you find a new love. There was a while when I was just looking for an honorable way out. I felt satisfied that I’d proven everything I need to prove, but I didn’t feel anybody else felt that way, and I wasn’t sure if the women’s division could survive without me.
I felt obligated to do more than what I actually wanted to. But I also have no regrets, and I’m so happy I fulfilled those obligations. And I really feel the women’s division can hold their own.”
