Mark Henry: "WWE is not using Ronda Rousey well"

Ronda Rousey made her comeback to WWE last January and recently confided that she was asked to smile more by Vince McMahon. The Riverside champion began her wrestling career in early 2018, signing a rich contract with the Stamford federation.

Rowdy made her ring debut on April 8 of the same year at WrestleMania 34, defeating Stephanie McMahon and Triple H paired with legendary Kurt Angle. On August 19, at SummerSlam, she won the Raw Women 's Championship to general amazement, holding the belt for 232 days.

Ronda is best known for having fought in the mixed martial arts federation known as the Ultimate Fighting Championship, of which she became the first category champion after also being one in the Strikeforce. In the latest edition of Busted Open Radio, Mark Henry criticized the WWE for the way it is managing Ronda Rousey.

Mark said: "I was very disappointed with how WWE is using Ronda Rousey." "I have spoken to her many times and I can assure you that she is a scientist in this business. She is an intelligent, skilled and charismatic athlete, you just have to allow her to fully express her immense talent.

The reins have not yet been released and we have never seen the real Ronda until today. Let Rousey be free to perform as she likes," he added. After several years, Mark is back to talk about Hulk Hogan's famous racist outburst dating back to 2008.

"I want to be conciliatory towards Hulk Hogan, especially since he seemed truly sorry for his actions. I would be happy to meet The Maker one day, so as to show him my closeness even more. I know very well that he has had to manage a difficult period.

He made a number of mistakes in that juncture, but he managed to get out of it somehow. We should all be willing to forgive at some point, especially if on the other hand there is sincere remorse for what happened."

Will Ronda Rousey stay in WWE?

Ronda Rousey recently returned to WWE at Royal Rumble 2022 after being away from the ring for several years, in fact the last time we saw her fight for the McMahon company was when she lost the Raw title at Wrestlemania 35 in 'April 2019.

Now she's back, winning the women's Royal Rumble Match challenging Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown women's title at Wrestlemania 38, where the two will be part of Night 1 or Wrestlemania Saturday, as the show will run over two evenings this year.

Although recently, during one of her gaming lives, she said that she doesn't know how much her body will hold after so long so far from the square, Rousey is continuing with the weekly episodes and also the tours, which between April and May the they will also see protagonists in Europe.

Also during one of her live shows on her Facebook, the former UFC joked that she would stay in WWE until she and husband Travis Browne decided to have another child. In fact, the couple welcomed her daughter La'akea Makalapuaokalanipō in September 2021, first daughter for Ronda, but third for her husband who has two sons from a previous relationship.

"Yes, I remain in WWE even after Wrestlemania 38. I will stay for a while. I just had a baby girl. I'm not ready for another one yet, so I'll stick around until we're ready for number two, or four." We remind you that according to some previous reports, Ronda has signed a contract with the WWE of at least one year, which would take her up to Wrestlemania 39 where she presumably will finally have her match face to face with the current Raw champion Becky Lynch, which all the fans expect given the ambiguous ending of Wrestlemania 35 and also because we actually never had the opportunity to see them in a 1 vs 1 match after Becky's injury suffered by Nia Jax during the Survivor Series 2018 period and then the subsequent inclusion of Charlotte Flair in the main event of Wrestlemania in 2019.
