Ronda Rousey Addresses WWE Status

Ronda Rousey recently did an interview with ESPN where she touched on the recent rumors of her "leaving" WWE to start a family. Here are some highlights and a link to the entire article is at the end:

On the rumors of her leaving WWE to start a family: "I honestly don't know why [anyone] feels like [they're] an authority to speak on the plans for my uterus. If I responded every single time the world speculated what I was doing with my womb I would not have a free moment in the day. I really don't feel like I should have to respond to that kind of thing. It's my vagina, my life, keep the speculations to yourself. Leave me and my reproductive organs alone."

On her desire to start a family: "I've not kept it a secret that I would definitely want to start a family. But how do you go about doing that? I love this way more than I thought that I would. So do you just keep going until you just happen to get pregnant? Or should you stop and go try and get pregnant? Or is going and trying to get pregnant putting yourself on the spot and then you're less likely to get pregnant? I've never had a baby before, I don't know these kinds of things. It would be kind of cool to just keep acting and then one day, 'Hey, surprise twist, I'm pregnant.' That would be fun. There's a lot of things up in the air. A lot of decisions that we've gotta make as a family. I'm trying to figure it out as I go along."

On her wrestling career: "Sometimes I don't feel like I'm acting or selling anything. Whatever we're doing in that moment, I'm so wrapped up in it that I really believe it. I've really convinced myself of all of this, 'Oh my God it hurts so bad! I didn't think I'd be any good as an actual wrestler. I thought I would be pretty much just a gimmick that got old after a couple of months.
I really wanted to get good at it and I needed to get time and practice." So the more that I do it, the more that I realize that I really love it. The more that I love it, the more I really, really want to be good at it. The more I really, really want to be good at it, the more that I really want to be there so I can get even better at it. I have that type of personality."
