Ronda Rousey is a WWE Superstar, and she has been surpassing expectations since her first match. Rousey signed with WWE back in January and made her official in-ring debut at WrestleMania 34. Rousey teamed up with WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle in a Mixed Tag Team match, to take on Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
Rousey really surprised fans with how she performed for a rookie. Several months later, Rousey captured the Raw Women’s Championship from Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam. She also main evented the first-ever all-female pay-per-view, Evolution, last month with Nikki Bella. If Rousey continues at this pace for the next several years, she could go down as an all-time WWE great.
Recently, Kurt Angle spoke to Sam Roberts at Ringside Collectibles’ Ringside Fest. During their conversation, Angle discussed Ronda Rousey’s recent run through WWE. Angle said that, when it’s all said and done, he believes Rousey’s legacy will surpass that of her UFC legacy:
“I can’t believe how well, how quickly she adapted to it,” Angle said. “I felt like it was me. A couple of weeks ago, she cut a promo (on Nikki Bella) in the ring and I was thinking that she was getting it way too quickly.
“This girl has been the best in judo, the best in the UFC but I think this is her thing. I think the WWE is the thing she’ll be the most known for. If healthy, another six-ten years, this will be her legacy.”
