WWE Star Accused Of Inappropriate Touching By Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey WWE

Ronda Rousey has opened up about one incident during her time in WWE that she says left a sour taste in her mouth.

The culture in WWE has been under the spotlight in recent months after the bombshell lawsuit filed against Vince McMahon accusing him of sexual assault and sex trafficking. Behaviours in the company form part of that suit and several members of WWE management have been named as known about Vince McMahon’s affair with the former WWE employee at the heart of the situation.

Speaking to NewsNation, Ronda Rousey looked back on one unfortunate incident for her in WWE when she said one talent in the company grabbed at her sweatpants while she was walking by:

I was standing there and this guy I was barely an acquaintance with grabs the string of my sweatpants as I’m walking by…and nobody reacts as if this is abnormal, and he’s going down the hall and I’m like ‘what the f*ck is that? Why are you grabbing the string of my sweatpants? If my husband was standing there next to me, would you feel comfortable walking up to me and grabbing the string of my sweatpants?’

All the guys around me were like, this is part of the day. And if this guy was coming up to me and doing this kind of stuff to me when there are other people around, what’s happening to these other girls when I’m not in the hallway?

Ronda Rousey Called Out Drew Gulak Over Behaviour In WWE

Rousey confirmed that the person in question was current NXT star Drew Gulak and that she later confronted Gulak over his behaviour:

I was like, if I ever hear you putting your hands on any other woman like this or doing anything to me like this ever again…we’re going to have a problem. And he was like ‘No, no, no, I’m glad you said something to me’ and he backpedalled. But it put a sour taste in my mouth about the culture there and what’s considered acceptable and how to touch and treat the women in the hallways.

Ronda Rousey left WWE after SummerSlam in 2023 and in her new book, Our Fight, she has been damning of the company and many people in it. Ronda Rousey has been adamant she’ll never return to WWE unless drastic changes are made.
