Ronda Rousey left WWE after her match against Shayna Baszler at SummerSlam 2023 and has since been vocal about her negative experiences with the company.

Rousey felt deeply dissatisfied with her time in WWE, believing that many promises went unfulfilled. When she returned, she had a clear vision for her storyline, including a highly anticipated match against Becky Lynch at WrestleMania. However, WWE’s plans did not align with her vision, and the match never materialized.

In her autobiography, Our Fight, Rousey recounts an emotional conversation with Triple H where she outlined her desired storyline: tagging with Shayna Baszler, having Baszler turn on her, and ultimately putting Baszler over before her departure. Rousey stressed the importance of this happening before SummerSlam, but WWE rushed through it.

Rousey expressed her frustrations to Triple H, criticizing the ‘minimum effort booking’ and revealing her emotional struggle with the situation. Ultimately, she told Triple H that she was exhausted and ready to move on.

Here’s what the UFC Hall of Famer wrote:

“‘Listen, I told you I’d be here until SummerSlam. And I’m a woman of my word, but I’m done after this. All I wanted when I got into this business was to tag with Shayna, have her turn on me, then put her over before I leave. We have until SummerSlam to make that happen. After that, I’m done being associated with this minimum effort lazy-a$$ sh*tshow.’

I could feel my lip quivering, I was so worked up it took everything I had to hold back tears. He shook his head like someone who silently shared my frustration.

‘OK, I get,’ he said. ‘I get it.’ I nodded, indicating I had said my piece. I moved to leave, when he stretched out his hand, I thought to shake mine. Instead, he leaned in, gently touching my arm. He dipped his head, looking up at me. His tone shifted from authority figure to friend. ‘But how are you?’ he asked sincerely.

I burst into tears. Not just crying, but bawling. ‘I’m so tired,’ I said. ‘I’m so tired that I feel like it’s changing my personality. I’m so much more anxious, stressed, negative, like butter scraped over too much bread.'”
