Ronda Rousey Became The First Woman to Win UFC and WWE Belts… Oh And Don’t Forget Her Olympic Medal…
Say what you like about the WWE. Yes, it’s entirely scripted but it is a testament to Ronda Rousey’s character as an athlete and a martial artist that she has just reached the pinnacle of sports entertainment. Rousey has become the first woman to win both UFC and WWE titles, after claiming the WWE Raw Women’s Championship.
This makes her only the third person ever to successfully claim both. Anyone questioning her willpower must surely be feeling a little silly now because she’s taken to professional wrestling like a duck to water. The former UFC women’s bantamweight champion is back.
Her bout against Alexa Bliss was short and sweet, ending with her shouting: “This is for Roddy Piper.” ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper, is one of Rousey’s heroes. The former wrestling legend died back in 2015.
