Former UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is loving her new job as a professional wrestler for the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and in particular likes the support system amongst the organization’s female talents.
Rousey, a pioneer of MMA, recently competed in the WWE’s flagship Wrestlemania 34 event. The 31-year-old electrified viewers in her wrestling debut and successfully showed the world why she belongs in the professional wrestling industry.
Professional wrestling is a form of performance art which combines athletics with theatrical performance. The matches have predetermined outcomes to heighten entertainment value and all combative maneuvers are executed with the full cooperation of those involved and carefully performed in specific manners intended to lessen the chance of actual injury. These facts were once kept highly secretive, but are now a widely accepted open secret.
Almost a week since Wrestlemania 34 took place, a video has surfaced of Rousey’s coworkers backstage at the event watching her match live. Following the completion of the five-star showing, Rousey returns backstage to be congratulated by her new co-workers and the “Rowdy” one gets emotional. Take a look below.
