Fans went crazy when Rousey shoved Triple H off the ring, showing her wrestling skills. From that day onwards, fans were expecting her debut in WWE.

In 2018, this eventually came true and the baddest woman on the planet started her career in WWE during the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Ronda debuted as a baby face and fans loved it initially. However, this didn’t last long and fans turned against her during the Survivor Series pay-per-view the same year.

Baszler reminded the time when Rousey returned to WWE and fans welcomed her with loud cheers. She said, I feel like there was a side of her that was like, ‘OK you’re cheering for me now, but I know how this is.’” Baszler said. “Now she is in this mode where, like, she just doesn’t care. Boo her, cheer her, whatever. She’s just doing what she does. Coincidently, I think it’s getting her more cheers now than she was before. I think when she first came back it was, ‘OK, I’ll do what you guys are thinking,’ But now it’s, ‘screw you, I don’t care what you’re thinking, I’m doing this.’ That’s always kind of been Ronda anyway.
