Ronda Rousey Details Injuries She Is Dealing With
Ronda Rousey has provided some information about the injuries that she is currently fighting through just to keep performing for WWE.
As a former two-time Smackdown Women’s Champion and Raw Women’s Champion that has headlined WWE shows including WrestleMania in past, Ronda Rousey is considered by many people to be one of WWE’s biggest stars.
After a very successful career in the UFC that saw her become the biggest female box office star in MMA history, Rousey successfully transitioned to WWE five years ago when she competed at WrestleMania 34 with Kurt Angle. Together, Rousey and Angle beat Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in a very entertaining match.
These days, Ronda Rousey is teaming with her good friend Shayna Baszler when she can, but the team hasn’t been able to wrestle much in recent weeks due to Rousey’s left arm injury.
This past Friday on Smackdown, Ronda Rousey appeared with an arm brace along with Baszler. They made it clear that they won’t be missing WrestleMania 39. The duo announced they will be in the Women’s 4-Way Tag Team Match at WrestleMania against Raquel Rodriguez & Liv Morgan, Natalya & Shotzi and one other team yet to be announced.
On her Instagram account, Ronda Rousey wrote about some of the injuries she is currently dealing with while making it clear she isn’t “moping” about it.
How do you train with no ACL or cartilage in your right knee as well as a fractured radius? Focus on what you CAN do – I have some of the most versatile training routines on earth, I need to do PT, build strength, retain flexibility, and train technique across multiple disciplines – sometimes all in a single session.
After over two and a half decades of combat sports training – the smallest misstep could result in surgery. Thankfully @mizunousa just sent me their new TS-01 trainers specifically designed for stability (while still ultra light so not to aggravate what remains of my knees 🙌🏼 woohoo!) check link in bio to get yours 😉
Story time! 2 weeks after my ACL reconstruction (at 16 years old) My mom had me on the floor doing pushups to teach me a lesson: you can sit around and feel sorry for yourself, or get off your mopey ass and train with a vengeance.
It’s thanks to that ACL injury I spent an entire year focusing solely on newaza (ground techniques in judo) and became the best in the world in armbars and transitions (anyone who doubts me is welcome to try me 😈)
Well, after thousands of dislocations (I thought not tapping out to armbars and tearing ligaments was cool in my teens) my elbow finally fractured simply by slapping the mat in Rockford, Illinois- right before Wrestlemania.
The only thing saving these chicks now are the doctors not letting me compete. Well ladies, they can’t keep me away forever, I’m not moping, vengeance is coming.
