The Match Ronda Rousey Wishes She Had In WWE

Ronda Rousey WWE

Ronda Rousey has been damning of WWE since she left the company after SummerSlam 2023 but says there’s one match she wishes she’d had.

Speaking during a LiveSigning session, Ronda Rousey revealed when asked about her one WWE dream match that she never got to have that she wanted a one-on-one encounter with Becky Lynch but it never happened despite the match being “dangled” in front of her:

Well, I really wanted to have that singles with Becky (Lynch) that constantly got dangled in front of me — I never got to have — which you can read about in our book at you can get it at and hear me b*tch about that for a couple hundred pages.

What Did Ronda Rousey Write About Becky Lynch Match?

In her newest book, Our Fight, Ronda Rousey went into great detail about her pitch for a match with Becky Lynch that would have taken inspiration from the Hollywood Backlot Brawl between Roddy Piper and Goldust at WrestleMania 12.

Rousey wrote about the conversation she had with Triple H about that proposed match and how he finally gave some insight into why it never happened:

“The thing with Becky at WrestleMania,” he said, “is we can’t get there in time. We don’t have time to build to it.” For the second time in as many days, I was not so much at a loss for words but a loss for words that wouldn’t get me arrested. I took a deep breath instead. “We’ve had a whole year to build it,” I said, coldly. “I’m sorry,” Triple H said.

I wanted to believe him, then he kept talking. “Anyway, Piper’s Hollywood backlot brawl is a classic, but it was booed out of the building. Long cinematic backstages just don’t work for a live audience,” he added, like he wasn’t in charge of the whole goddamn thing. “Then why not say so instead of nodding emphatically when I came to pitch you guys years ago?” I asked.

“And what I pitched wasn’t a long backstage match like theirs but segments spread throughout the show—and anyway, it doesn’t matter, it didn’t have to be exactly that. I just wanted to be part of developing something with you guys. Remember when I first got here? I had that perfect match with you, Steph, and Kurt.

“That’s how I thought it was going to be here, being part of this organization. Instead, I feel like I was given a false representation of what it would be like to work here. It was all an act to get me in the door and to fall in love with this industry. Ever since then, I feel like my love for wrestling has been weaponized against me. But I can’t be associated with mediocre sh*t.”

Becky Lynch has gone on record saying that she believes Ronda Rousey couldn’t wrestle despite her obvious success in the worlds of judo and MMA.
