Ronda Rousey Talks About Appearing For WWE, CM Punk’s Departure

While doing media for Saturday night’s title defense against Alexis Davis at UFC 175, UFC Women’s Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey spoke to Ariel Helwani about the possibility of showing up in WWE some time in the near future.

“I really think of WWE as like the purest form of stunts, kind of like in movies they say the purest form of acting is theater because it’s live and it’s all in one shot. I feel like WWE is the same thing for stunt work. I just kind of try to borrow from them a little bit and maybe I can steal some of their stunt work and throw it in a movie. If an opportunity comes up to show up and be a guest host or whatever, that would be pretty cool. I don’t know (about one match), I gotta beat Alexis (Davis), let’s just get through that.”

She also gave her take on why she thinks former WWE Superstar CM Punk decided to leave the company:

“No one can make you have passion for something if you don’t. I felt that way about judo. It was over. I was over it, and I didn’t want to do it anymore, regardless of how good I was at it. I didn’t want to be there. So if he wants to come back and find some passion again, I would love to see that. But if it’s time for him to move on in his life, then he has 100-percent of my support in that as well.”
