Former UFC ace Ronda Rousey‘s WWE exit was not amicable. She had developed a loathing for top brass execs, except for Chief Content Officer Triple H and his wife Stephanie McMahon, to some extent. Lashing out at the promotion’s misogynist ambiance, the 37-year-old ended up despising former Chairman Vince McMahon and his close allies John Laurinaitis and Bruce Prichard.

Recently, in an interview with Rick Ucchino of Cageside Seats, Rousey disclosed what she had told Triple H before quitting the pro wrestling juggernaut. One must note that Rousey respected Triple H. Alluding to mild creative for the majority of her second run, Ronda explicitly told ‘The Game’ that she did not want to associate with mediocrity.

She wished that her post-pregnancy sojourn had commenced when ‘The Cerebral Assassin’ firmly took over as the creative head. However, it didn’t happen. Ronda Rousey returned to WWE as a surprise entrant in the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble match. She ended up being the last woman standing and, as a result, secured a quota for a title match at WrestleMania 38.

I had a long sit down with Triple H and I was like, ‘I can’t be associated with mediocrity.' Triple H has been great towards the women in the company and really believing in us. He’s the whole reason that I was there, cause he believed in me.

By then, the heinous allegations of misconduct against Vince McMahon hadn’t surfaced yet. Once they surfaced, McMahon bailed out, and his son-in-law replaced him at the helm. One of the first things Triple H did as a creative lead was to turn Ronda Rousey heel. It felt like ‘The Baddest Woman on the Planet’ had regained that edginess but to no avail. By every ounce, Rousey appreciated being mentored by the 14-time World Champion.

Ronda Rousey had many reasons to hold grudges against WWE

In her soon-to-be-released memoir, Our Fight, Rousey has talked about her WWE journey at length. She jotted down whatever she saw there. Alleging the company of having a casting couch culture, the ex-UFC bantamweight champion said female talents were asked for se*ual favors in return for on-screen minutes.

Ronda even iterated that former WWE Head of Talent Relations, John Laurinaitis and Bruce Prichard could go and “f**k themselves.” Per the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, by the time the former Judoka exited WWE, she despised Vince McMahon. However, she remained friendly with Stephanie McMahon and had positive things to say about Triple H.

However, a person close to the situation stated that, to this day, she loves her ex-boss, Dana White. In her upcoming autobiography, Ronda Rousey compared Vince McMahon to Saudi Arabia’s stringent norms for women. She has claimed to never go back to WWE. It needs to be seen whether she stays true to her words.
