Dan Severn on Ronda Rousey having issues in WWE
Dan Severn talked about the life of a professional wrestler and speculated that Ronda Rousey was not able to adjust to the life that comes with being a wrestler in WWE. A WWE wrestler does have to spend a majority of their life on the road, and when Ronda Rousey joined, she accompanied the company touring at times as well, other than the usual live shows on television.
"I'm aware that she was being used quite strongly in the beginning. And from what I've read and heard she has moved on from them. And thus was not with them for all that long in the process. I think she was having some difficult times conforming to the professional wrestling lifestyle. It's very demanding, especially if you are a star in the organization. I think the standard contract is 187 dates, that does not mean travel to and travel back from, that's a 187 dates. Plus if you're a star, you're doing a whole lot more of marketing and publicity on top of that. So, it's a life of being on the road."
Currently, there are rumours about Ronda Rousey returning to WWE soon, and she was spotted training with James Storm recently. It remains to be seen when or if Ronda Rousey will come back.Published 21 Oct 2020, 17:00 IST
