Rousey's comments have drawn the ire of Lana and Alexa Bliss on Twitter with others privately expressing unhappiness with her remarks. Earlier this week, before Rousey's initial comments, Nia Jax called out someone (believed to be Rousey) for hurting Bliss during matches.

"Anyone who is outraged by me calling pro wrestling "fake fights for fun" has never been in a REAL fight. While you all are tip toeing around bruising some pro wrestlers' huge soft egos - no one is thinking about all the REAL fighters you're insulting when pretending pro wrestling is somehow on the same level of realism. Yes, I understand, wrestling 300 days a year for years on end is incredibly tough on the body and a difficult profession- but do you know what would happen if you got in 300 REAL fights in a year? You would be dead."
