During the conference call with investors yesterday, WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon praised former Raw Women’s champion Ronda Rousey for her contribution and as he put it, “extraordinary job” she has done for WWE.
“Her challenge was to bring the entire women’s division up and as you know, that was our main event at this year’s WrestleMania involving Ronda. So Ronda’s task that she chose and of course it’s great for us is to build that whole division, have more visibility on that division, and to make stars and to make stars that, now, you have stories where even after Ronda leaves,” McMahon said.
Vince then continued, “So when you look at what happened at WrestleMania, and with Becky Lynch and Charlotte and others, the entire division, the focal point and the stories that are coming out of that, Ronda did an awesome job, she did an awesome job.”
Ronda has decided to step away from the ring after one year to start a family. She also had to undergo surgery after she broke her pinky knuckle during the match at WrestleMania. She said that her future is still unknown and it all depends what happens if and when she becomes a mother.
