In the video, Baszler can be seen urging Rousey to remain out of her conflict with Natalya for the benefit of the women’s tag team division.

In case you don’t know, Natalya has teamed up with Rousey’s long-time best friend, Baszler. They are likely to go into a championship bout at the upcoming Money in The Bank. Additionally, the conflict arose from Baszler’s backing of Natalya, Rousey’s adversary and subsequent challenger at Money in the Bank 2022.

When Baszler said she can’t get involved in this and Rousey can handle her opponent on her own. “The Baddest Woman on The Planet,” wasn’t happy with her friend as she stated, “You started hanging out with her like couple of weeks ago and somehow its big moral obligation to you. Like who is she to you?”

Baszler added that another reason she is working with Nattie is to make some money. Rousey then walked away furiously and stated, “Make you money.”

Given their strong friendship, they support one another both personally and professionally. They both share numerous similarities, including being UFC legends who later joined WWE. Despite this, they have never faced off against one another or teamed up there. However, as Rousey shared the video, it will be fascinating to watch how this develops in the future.
