Ronda Rousey battled Shayna Baszler in an MMA Rules match at WWE SummerSlam this past Saturday. Baszler won the match via Technical Submission after Rousey passed out to her Kirifuda Clutch.

The match is being called Rousey’s last match in her second WWE run, as she’s rumored to leave the company now.

The former RAW and SmackDown Women’s Champion has now broken her silence. She took to Instagram today to state that Baszler was the reason she joined the pro wrestling business, but after their split she has no reason to stay in the business anymore.

“@qosbaszler you were the reason I got into this business… Now I got no reason to stay”

It seems like Rousey has confirmed her departure from WWE in this post. Whether she will return in the future is unknown yet.

Speaking of their SummerSlam match, the Wrestling Observer reported that Ronda & Shayna had some issues with WWE Creative about this bout:

“Ronda and Shayna wasn’t the best match. There were issues between WWE creative and them as far as how it was gonna go, and you don’t have knockdowns in an MMA fight and do 10 counts, or whatever, but it’s like, you have some people stuck in one mentality of combat and others in another, and that it kind of hurt that.”

The Observer also noted that there was a rule that Rousey couldn’t lose via submission, but Rousey herself ended that rule for her friend:

“It may be the end, period. So the whole deal was that Ronda, you know this looked to be, ‘it’s my last match and Shayna is the one who got me into this so if I have to go out then I’m losing by submission’, because nobody was allowed to beat Ronda by submission, that was the key.

So, she did it, with her best friend, and I mean, in theory it’s great for Shayna if they follow up on it, so we’ll see.”
