Ronda Rousey Comments On WWE Royal Rumble Win

Ronda Rousey has now commented on her surprise return to WWE, reflecting on her Royal Rumble match victory.

During Saturday’s event, Rousey won the women’s Royal Rumble match, last eliminating SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair. Rousey has now stated that she always knew that she wanted to make her WWE return at the show.

On Instagram, Rousey shared photos of herself squaring off with Nikki Bella and Rhea Ripley in the match. Noting that it’s now her turn, Rousey wrote:

“I just had a baby 4 months ago…. Since the day I found out I was pregnant and calculated my due date, I knew I wanted to return to the @wwe at the #royalrumble2022

“Two weeks, even two months postpartum that goal seemed crazier than ever before.
But I just missed it so much… and I so badly wanted to give Pō the same example that my mom gave to me and my sisters – she never broke stride following her dreams while having us.
Now it’s my turn.”

In a backstage interview segment following her win, Rousey revealed that she planned to make a statement on the show. Discussing the crowd reaction to her return, Rousey said:

“That’s the statement I meant to make. I don’t know. That wasn’t a question at all, that was a statement.

“I’m gonna go back to my bus and love on my little baby and that’s really the only thing I care about right now. My priorities have changed.

“It’s the Royal Rumble and I’ve always wanted to come out and win the Royal Rumble. What do you mean why tonight? What other night would be better?

“There was quite a reaction tonight and you can expect me not to fall for it this time.”
