During her appearance this week on the late night talk show, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, former RAW Women’s Champion and UFC Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey spoke about her performance in the historic first-ever women’s main event at WrestleMania 35 last month.
Rousey, who is on hiatus from WWE right now, spoke about suffering a broken hand during her match against Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair at the big event at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
“I need to get better at faking it,” said Rousey of throwing punches and performing intense action inside the ring. “This [injury] is from the main event at WrestleMania.”
Rousey then went on to explain how and when she suffered the injury.
“There was a point in the match where where I was teasing that I was going to throw a girl through a table and then I went, ‘Tables are for b*tches!’ And I threw the table.”
She continued, “I was coming in hot, and I started punching and sometimes you catch a pinky with an elbow. I remember looking at my hand and seeing I had six knuckles. I was like, ‘Man, I have to punch so much more after this. [Laughs].”
