Ronda Rousey is really loving her time in WWE right now. So much so in fact that she already seems to be giving some thought to staying with the company longer than initially expected. Rousey signed with WWE earlier this year. She made her in-ring debut at WrestleMania 34 in April. Rousey teamed up with Kurt Angle to defeat the team of Stephanie McMahon and Triple H in a Mixed Tag Team match.
Rousey then embarked on her singles career with a quick title shot. She challenged then-RAW Women’s Champion Nia Jax for her strap at the Money In The Bank PPV event. Rousey looked as though she was going to defeat Jax for the title, but MITB briefcase winner Alexa Bliss interrupted the match and attacked both Jax and Rousey. She then cashed-in her briefcase on Jax and got the pin for the victory, leaving Chicago RAW Women’s Champion.
Now, Rousey has been feuding with Bliss on RAW for the past several weeks. She’ll get her chance at revenge at SummerSlam this weekend in Brooklyn. Rousey is challenging Bliss for the RAW Women’s Championship at “The Biggest Party Of The Summer.” The former UFC champion did an interview with ESPN to promote her match with Bliss this weekend.
During their conversation, Rousey talked about how much she has loved her WWE run thus far. She even admitted that she’s already thinking about prolonging her stay in the professional wrestling world:
“I love this way more than I ever thought I would,” Rousey said. “We had a set timeline set, and now we aren’t so sure about it because I love it so much.
“I guess that’s the best thing that could’ve happened, that I would love it so much, it would be so hard to stop. I can see why people have a hard time leaving this industry because it’s such a joy to be a part of every day.”
