WWE executive Paul Michael Levesque has jumped to Ronda Rousey’s defense following criticism from co-stars and fans on the special treatment she has been receiving from the organization.
Several of Rousey’s new female co-stars have made it publicly known that they are not happy with the special treatment and promotion which she has been receiving. They believe more focus should be on the established professional wrestlers.
Paul Michael Levesque, also known as Triple H, is the current Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative for the world’s largest professional wrestling organization. He recently released an official statement.
“The world is abuzz with Ronda Rousey’s appearance and future with WWE. Everyone’s road is different, but trust me Ronda has ALWAYS been one of us! Congratulations Ronda and welcome to the family.” Levesque wrote in an official statement.
Levesque clarified on his comments during a chat with Sports Skeeda. He is confident Rousey is going to win over all the fans as well as the other women on the roster.
“To me, it’s (about) delivering for our fans that we already have, let alone showing those new ones. I’m telling you, she is going to win them over because she is just like them. She’s been a fan since she was a little kid. I think it was probably one of her first things that she loved, was WWE. She’s going to knock this out of the park.” he said.
“She’ll finish up this movie, and then she’s in. She’ll be at the Performance Center, she’ll be training and working with us every day. And we’ll see where it goes. It is not for lack of desire or motivation, if anything. The two times she has been at the Performance Center training, we’ve had to try to get her to back off because she will train all day and all night if we let her.” he continued.
“She fits right in. Any time she’s ever been around us, it’s like this is where she should have been her whole life. She’s just like everybody else who is in our locker room. There’s no pretenses, there’s no ego, there’s no anything.” Levesque concluded.
