Ronda Rousey has taken a swipe at a WWE Executive in a surprising online attack.
‘The baddest woman on the planet’ was offering her reaction to the recent allegations surrounding Vince McMahon in a candid statement on social media site ‘X’.
McMahon resigned from his position as TKO Executive Chairman on 26th January amidst allegations from former WWE employee Janel Grant that included sex trafficking and sexual assault.
The wrestling world has reacted with shock and a wave of negativity in McMahon’s direction, however the former UFC Champion has opted instead to highlight the presence of current WWE Executive Bruce Prichard as a reason that McMahon may not have truly split from the company.
Prichard serves as Executive Director of Raw and SmackDown and is a long-term right hand man of McMahon having originally joined the company in 1987.
After a ten-year break, Prichard return to WWE creative duties and was once again reunited with McMahon, staying firmly beside the 78 year-old after McMahon’s initial resignation from WWE in 2022 following misconduct allegations.
Ronda Rousey Reveals Candid Views On Bruce Prichard
Former SmackDown Women’s Champion Rousey was notoriously outspoken during her 5 year tenure with WWE and once again did not back on her views, appearing to suggest that the company needs to remove Bruce Prichard from an Executive position in order to cut ties with McMahon once and for all:
“Bruce Prichard is basically Vince’s avatar, if he’s still around Vince still has a hand in the business. Vince was still running things through Bruce when he was “gone” before”
Rousey has gone into semi-retirement from the ring, making just a handful of independent appearances since departing WWE after defeat to Shayna Baszler at SummerSlam 2023.
