Ronda Rousey kicked off her first run with WWE when she made her in-ring debut at WrestleMania 34. She went on to main event WrestleMania 35 then took some time off before returning in 2022. However, Ronda Rousey officially finished up with WWE, seemingly for good, after she was defeated by Shayna Baszler at SummerSlam in August of 2023.

In her new book Our Fight, Ronda Rousey makes it very clear that she was not a fan of Vince McMahon or John Laurinaitis. However, she has spoken highly of Triple H. During a recent interview with Cageside Seats the former Raw Women’s Champion explained that she had a long meeting with Triple H prior to her departure where she addressed her reasons for leaving.

“I had a long sit down with Triple H and I was like, ‘I can’t be associated with mediocrity.’ And that’s what they seemed to be happy with at the time. And I hope that is different now, but I can’t say… that I’ve ever experienced it any other way.”

Rousey went on to say that she’s glad to see how things have changed now that Vince McMahon is gone and Triple H has taken over creative duties for WWE.

“I’m so glad that it’s getting turned around. Triple H has been great towards the women in the company and really believing in us. He’s the whole reason that I was there, ‘cause he believed in me. I really wish that my last run was under Triple H running things and Vince being gone.”
