Ronda Rousey is a retired American mixed martial artist, judoka, and actress. She is one of the most dominant in-ring performers of all time and has over the years established herself as a legend in the field of combat sports.

After retiring from MMA in 2018 after a humiliating loss to Holly Holm, Rousey made her way into WWE. Soon after stepping foot in WWE, she rose the ranks. Rousey was even an integral part of the women’s main-event match at WrestleMania 35, where she lost her championship to Becky Lynch. However, back in 2019, she was also responsible for another infamous act that she took part in against WWE.

Back in 2019, WWE came forward and banned her husband Travis Browne from WWE after he overstepped his line, and punched a security person as part of the storyline. In a 2019 episode of WWE RAW Rousey continued her beat down on Dana Brooke even after her match was over.

In order to stop the beatdown, security came down and held back Rousey. However, that did not stop Rousey from assaulting a security officer. This caused chaos, prompting her husband to jump in from the stands and interfere. Browne would kayfabe punch a security officer, and pull Rousey into the crowd, before fleeing away.

However, it caused WWE to ban Browne from WWE events and led Rousey to outbursts on her social media account, and criticism of WWE. She would go on to use harsh words against the company and name-call them playing to her villainous persona.
