Sasha Banks fans, we've got some bad news for you

Every so often, stories emerge about WWE Superstars that simply aren’t true – ‘fake news’, if you will.

Whether it’s a wild rumor that was started by a fellow wrestler or a preconceived assumption about a new performer, it doesn’t take long for stories to spread around social media and for fans to believe everything they read.

In this article, we’ve narrowed down a select few myths about current WWE Superstars that have been proven to be inaccurate.

#4 Myth: Ronda Rousey isn’t a trained pro wrestler

Ronda Rousey stole Asuka's spotlight at the 2018 Royal Rumble

Ronda Rousey is yet to officially make her in-ring debut, but she was recently confirmed as a "full-time" member of the roster so we're counting her as a WWE Superstar.

A common gripe that WWE fans have with the MMA megastar is that she isn’t a trained pro wrestler and that it’s unfair for her to jump straight to the main roster when other performers have trained for multiple years just to get to NXT.

While the latter point is open for debate, it’s incorrect to say that Ronda hasn’t trained in pro wrestling, as Triple H recently revealed in a pre-TakeOver: Philadelphia media call that she’s actually been training in her spare time to be a “sports entertainer” for the last four years.

He added that criticism of her taking other people’s spot on the roster is “unfounded” and that she has been very serious about joining WWE for a long time.
