UFC and WWE superstar Ronda Rousey had recently done an interview with Stephanie Chase of Digital Spy to promote the new World of Warcraft Shadowlands video game and Rousey said the one thing she does not miss about WWE is the travel.
She was honest about not liking being on the road, that part about her job in WWE was not her favorite thing to do. Rousey remembers when Sarah Logan told her that she wrestled for free, however she still got paid to travel. Ronda made comments about the fact about how she dealt with back issues all due to taking all those bumps in the ring and traveling. Rousey says, “I love wrestling but I think it was maybe Sarah Rowe who wrestled under the gimmick name (Sarah Logan) who told her she wrestled for free but WWE at the time had to pay for her travel.” “The hardest part I think was just not being able to lay down horizontally, you know?” She talked about taking a bunch of hard bumps, “your back is going to hurt and naturally you just want to lay down.”
“All I wanted to do in between the shows is lay down with my legs up and travel. You’re just sitting upright all the time and my back would kill me.” So the actual act of traveling she does not miss it at all, it was the absolute worst. Rousey stated when referring to the hectic WWE travel schedule, that traveling was a painful experience for her regarding a back injury she suffered before signing a deal with WWE. She brought up the fact that her bottom vertebrae in her back is actually broken in half. “So that has something to do with it. But having to travel on a broken back is the worst. I love being at home on my extra firm Tempur-Pedic mattress every night.”
We should make a point to say, Ronda Rousey has been away and off of WWE TV since the historic WrestleMania 35 main event in 2019.
