During the latest recording Ronda on the Road, WWE Smackdown Superstar Ronda Rousey discussed her current run as Smackdown Women’s Champion. Check out the comments from the “Baddest Woman On The Planet” below.
On her Smackdown Women's Championship reign:
“Vince doesn’t see me playing the invincible monster like Brock, you know? This is like a more vulnerable side of me. But not vulnerable in like, ‘Oh, I’m being hurt!’ It’s more of a, ‘I gotta find ways to challenge myself more and more and more. Like, I’m not trying to hide from my limits, I’m trying to chase after them with a vengeance. And that’s what I think champions should be. They should try to duck and dodge, and preserve their hold on the title. And you should never squat on it. I think this is what I want to be seen as my most active title run probably. Most active that they see from from anybody. I want to be defending my title all of the time.”
On changing the WWE culture:
“Ever since I’ve got here, I’ve been trying to push a cultural shift of, it’s not us vs. each other. It’s us versus the men, and not in a bad way but in like, we’re not competing against each other’s individuals, but our match is competing against the men’s match. And we’re all, we’re trying to show that um we’re on we’re on the same level. And it’s more of like a team thing. Like, who cares who wins a fake fight? What matters is that it’s entertaining. And that’s what I want. That’s kind of like what I’ve been trying to help with with my own attitude in the locker room, that it’s all about us as a team making sure our match is super f**king awesome. And I mean, everyone that I work with seems really excited to be like, ‘Hell yeah, let’s tell a hell of a story.’
