News on Ronda Rousey’s backstage reputation in WWE

Ronda Rousey worked on her first set of non-televised events on the recent European tour. The original plan was for a series of singles matches against Mickie James but plans changed and it ended up being Rousey, Natalya and Ember Moon against Liv Morgan, Ruby Riott, and James. Presumably, the decision was made because they didn’t feel that Rousey was ready for a 10-minute singles match.

Rousey only worked about a minute per match and the stuff she did looked good for her level of experience. She is over with the fans and she is over with everyone backstage.

Several months ago, we talked about Rousey’s backstage reputation. Basically, everyone likes her and she goes out of her way to say hello to everyone, including the people in production.

Several months have passed and nothing has changed. In fact, more people in the company have warmed up to her. On Sunday’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about how well-received she is backstage. Meltzer said, “attitude-wise [she is] 100% tremendous. No negativity there. She’s happy, she loves doing this, she’s a hard worker, she has absolutely no stuck-up star issue in this whatsoever. There’s no ego thing there. In fact, it’s the opposite. Everyone’s talked about how refreshing it is that she is so humble for as big a star as she is.”

Meltzer noted that she is different from some guys that came in from football or other sports and walked around with a big ego. The fact that she is coachable in pro wrestling and is willing to learn from everyone is a great thing for her and great for WWE because it means that she will likely continue to improve and she could end up as one of the best wrestlers in the company in a couple of years.

If you follow Rousey on Twitter or Instagram, you can see that she had a blast on the European tour.
