On her upcoming match against Sasha Banks:
According to Ronda Rousey, a lot of people have till now have asked her regarding her potential dream match and the answer to that question has always been Sasha Banks. Rousey believes that a lot of women in the WWE have had their best match with Sasha Banks.
"Everyone always asked me what is my dream match and I always say, Sasha Banks. I think a lot of women have had their best match with Sasha. More people in the women's division have had their best matches with Sasha, I think more than anyone else in my opinion."
In addition, Rousey also said that she feels Banks could really bring out the full potential in Rousey and the two could put together a solid match.
"I've always been really excited about the potential she could really bring out of me. Up until this point, I didn't think I was ready at the level where I could fully take advantage of the opportunity of being told to have a match with her."
On her tag team match at WrestleMania 34:
Looking back at her WrestleMania 34 match, which was also the former UFC Bantamweight Champion's WWE debut, Rousey stated that she apparently had no idea what was going on in the ring, as she had to perfectly memorize every single moment.
"I can't believe that I had my first match ever, I had no clue what the hell I was doing. I had to perfectly memorize and to walk through every single moment of the match, which was at WrestleMania. I feel like that was a whole person almost you know it's so crazy. I've been completely immersed in this culture and it was like going to a different country and learning a new language. It's like if you just move to Spain and you don't speak any Spanish and then eight years later you better know how to speak Spanish."
