UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey recently spoke with WWE’s official website about her WrestleMania experience and rumors of doing more work with the company in the future.
Below are some highlights from the interview:
On what a chapter in a book on her WrestleMania debut would look like: “I don’t know. I guess it’ll have to start the next book … ‘cause I feel like that part of my life is still in its infancy and it’s a little too early to get into it.”
On how she would describe her WrestleMania experience: “It was like if you were an avid baseball fan your whole life, and you went to watch the World Series and they asked you to come in and pinch hit, and you went out and hit a home run in front of everybody. It was that level of “dream come true.”
On if WrestleMania will be the last time we see her in a WWE ring: “You know, I was backstage and I got to talk several wrestling legends, so many. It’s such an over-stimulating day that I forgot who told me this, but he said, “You never really retire from wrestling; you can’t. You just step away for awhile.” Life is pulling me in a bunch of different directions and I’m forced to step away for awhile. But there’s no way, after getting a taste like that, I could never go back in for seconds.”
