Who is Ronda Rousey?
Ronda Rousey is a mixed martial fighter and judoka from the United States who also enjoys acting. While she was working for WWE, she was a member of RAW’s Women’s Division. She now holds the record for the second-longest reign in the title’s history with 231 days as the RAW Women’s Champion. Rousey, a former UFC women’s champion, was the first American woman to win an Olympic medal in judo.
About her Childhood:
She was born on February 1st, 1987, in California. She had a challenging upbringing. Her umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck when she was born due to which she was unable to speak until she was six years old. Her father had an accident after she had healed and had a back injury. There were therefore excellent odds that he would become paralyzed. When Ronda was 8 years old, her father committed suicide. She has two siblings and her mother’s ability to care for all of her children on her own demonstrates how resilient she is. Ronda’s mother introduced her to judo training when she was a little girl since she had won a judo championship.
Rousey had difficulty in school and was homeschooled for some of the elementary and high school, but when her mother, AnnMaria De Mars, persuaded her to take judo lessons, she discovered an outlet for her discontent. De Mars, a gold medal-winning judoka at the 1984 World Championships, started instructing her daughter in the basics of the sport, particularly the dreaded armbar that is used to pin an adversary to the mat.
Ronda Rousey Career:
From an early age, Rousey received instruction in judo from her mother. When she was 11 years old, she had a strong interest in Judo and began practicing every day with her mother’s help. As the youngest judoka to compete, Ronda Rousey qualified for the 2004 Olympic Games at the age of 17.
The same year, she took first place in the World Junior Judo Championships. After resigning from judo at age 21 to focus on MMA as a new career, Rousey went on to win a great deal more medals in the discipline. She worked a variety of jobs while concentrating completely on her mixed martial arts training, including waitressing, bartending, and other employment. She made her MMA debut in 2011, and she advanced swiftly in the UFC. After dominating the boxing world for 12 straight fights, stardom followed. When she made her WWE debut on April 8, 2018, she already had a record-breaking number of main events under her belt. She pleasantly surprised everyone at the Royal Rumble in January 2018. She joined the WWE RAW team in March 2018.
She won her first Raw Championship on August 19, 2018, by defeating Alexa Bliss. A month later, on September 16, she successfully defended her championship by defeating Bliss once more at a WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event. Rousey’s 231-day reign as the WWE Women’s Champion, which was a record for the WWE Women’s Division, came to an end when she was defeated by Lynch in her debut WWE bout in March 2019.
