We haven't seen Ronda Rousey in the squared circle for quite some time. On a recent podcast with Steve-O, she MIGHT have hinted at her reason why:
"What am I doing it for if I’m not being able to spend my time and energy on my family, but instead spending my time and my energy on a bunch of f--- ing ungrateful fans that don’t even appreciate me? The thing is, I love performing. I love the girls. I love being out there."
"But, at the end of the day, I was just like, ‘F--- these fans, dude.’ My family loves me. They appreciate me. I want all of my energy to go into them."
Now, this COULD be how she really feels... OR,
she may just be really good at kayfabe (the last time we saw her in WWE, she had embraced a heel character. Everything she said on Steve-O's podcast is EXACTLY what her heel character would say).
Regardless of the situation, she still doesn't give a damn about a bad reputation. That's for sure!

On March 6, 2020, 'Big Poppa Pump' Scott Steiner was rushed to a hospital after collapsing backstage at an event for Impact Wrestling. He was doing a pre-taped interview when he collapsed. At first, reports called his collapse a "life or death situation," as he reportedly stopped breathing and needed his heart shook.
Thankfully, Scott Steiner is 'on the mend' and expected to make a full recovery.
EVP of Impact Wrestling, Scott D'Amore, released a statement on social media, saying:
"For all concerned parties @ScottSteiner is OK. His family is grateful for everybody's concern and support."
Wrestling legend Tommy Dreamer visited Steiner in the hospital, along with Scott D'Amore and Joey Ryan. Dreamer asked for Steiner's fans to pray for his recovery.
Unfiltered Perspectives wishes Steiner a speedy recovery.
Holla if ya hear me!!
Call it Twin Magic or a well deserved honor, The Bella Twins will be joining the class of 2020 in the WWE Hall of Fame.
The announcement was made on Smackdown Live during "A Moment of Bliss." Nikki and Brie Bella were both greeted by a massive standing ovation after the announcement was made. Nikki Bella and Brie Bella, who are both pregnant, were overwhelmed with gratitude by the incredible honor. They thanked the WWE Universe for their support, and are looking forward to joining the greats in the WWE Hall of Fame in April.
Congrats to The Bella Twins!
Finally, a 4th generation star has descended upon...the WWE!
That's right! Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's daughter Simone is following in her dad's footsteps, and has signed with the WWE. She is also following in the footsteps of her great-grandfather High Chief Peter Maivia, and her grandfather Rocky Johnson.
The 18-year-old reported to the Performance Center to begin her training (for NXT), and she is already gettign rave reviews from her trainers. They all say she is soaking in all the information she is being given. Johnson has released a statement explaining how she feels about following in the footsteps of her great-grandfather, her grandfather, and her father:
"It means the world to me. To know that my family has such a personal connection to wrestling is really special to me and I feel grateful to have the opportunity, not only to wrestle, but to carry on that legacy."
Paul "Triple H" Levesque also released a statement, saying: âSimone Johnsonâs unbridled passion and incredible drive has earned her a coveted spot training with the elite athletes from around the world at the WWE Performance Center. Not only does Simone now have an opportunity to cultivate and display her passion for WWE within the Performance Center, but sheâll carry on the tradition of her incredible family lineage while creating her own impact as WWEâs first fourth generation Superstar."
Simone Johnson will be learning from head coach Matt Bloom, and assistant head coach Sara Amato. Bloom described Johnson as being someone who is "hungry to learn," and that she "picks the coaches' minds, and the veteran Superstars' as well." The coaches report that she is "crushing it" so far.
How is The Rock feeling about his daughter continuing their family's legacy? He is one proud papa. Just check out his Insta for yourselves (see below)!
I look forward to seeing Simone on the main roster someday! Her family's legacy is perhaps the largest legacy in the history of the WWE (bigger than the McMahan's, sorry not sorry), and she will take sports entertainment by storm.
All I ask is that I see a raised eyebrow, and The People's Elbow...at least once.
Brie and Nikki mode! WWE's Bella Twins are pregnant! The twins shared the news a few days ago, sending shockwaves of excitement all over the WWE Universe.
The ladies broke the news to People first, then they cooed with excitement on social media. This will be Brie's second child with husband Daniel Bryan, and Nikki's first child with fiance Artem Chigvintsev.
Nikki Bella has been sharing a lot about her personal life ever since news of her pregnancy came out. She shared with People that she was nervous to commit to Artem due to the heartbreak she endured with WWE wrestler/actor John Cena. Additionally, Bella disclosed that she didn't think she could get pregnant. In fact, she was in the process of freezing her eggs, when she found out she was expecting.
Not only are the famous twins pregnant at the same time, they are due less than 2 weeks apart! #Magical!
As a 20+ year mega fan of the WWE, and a fan of The Bellas, I am overjoyed for them. Congrats to Brie and Daniel, and Nikki and Artem! Yay!!!
