Ronda Rousey appeared on WWE Hall Of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper’s “Piper’s Pit” podcast this week and revealed that some of what happened during her WrestleMania 31 appearance wasn’t planned.
Rousey spoke in-depth about her WrestleMania experience, noting that she had a lot of fun, but was completely nervous the entire time.
“There’s no way I’m not going back in there, though,” said Rousey. “There’s nothing like it. The second I left, I was thinking how I could possibly go back. I hadn’t even got out of my outfit yet.”
The UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion explained how hard it was to perform in a WWE ring as opposed to an Octagon, noting that it was a “tall order” to try and out-shine WWE legends like The Rock and Triple H.
“It’s a tricky thing having [The Rock]. He’s so good at putting people over. He holds the room so intensely, it’s hard to not be outshone by him,” said Rousey. “Triple H and The Rock could be one of the biggest rivalries of all-time. How can we make a situation where we ignore them? That’s a lot of pressure, to be captivating enough to ignore them.”
Rousey also revealed that the throw she did to Triple H wasn’t the one she had originally planned to do.
“That wasn’t even a throw I was planning. I made it up on the spot. I pulled it out of my ass. I don’t even know what that is,” said Rousey. “It was kind of awesome to see everything planned, and everything that doesn’t go according to plan.”
Rousey concluded, “Everything that didn’t go the way we wanted to go was better than we even could have thought.”
