During her appearance on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani today, Becky Lynch addressed the topic of Ronda Rousey, who has been vocal about her dissatisfaction with her time in WWE, particularly her relationship with Vince McMahon.

Critics have often cited Rousey’s perceived lack of wrestling ability as a factor in her tumultuous reception from fans. Lynch echoed this sentiment, acknowledging that Rousey’s wrestling skills were lacking. However, she also pointed out that Rousey’s mishandling after her debut match at WrestleMania 34 played a significant role.

Lynch emphasized that nobody intended for Rousey to fail and that everyone involved in the industry strives to improve it. She noted that Rousey’s star power and impressive debut led many to believe she could excel in wrestling immediately. However, Lynch stressed the importance of honing one’s craft over time, highlighting the misconception that Rousey could seamlessly transition into wrestling without extensive training.

Furthermore, Lynch criticized the assumption that Rousey already possessed wrestling knowledge due to her initial success, emphasizing that wrestling is a craft that requires diligence and continuous learning. She argued that Rousey was mishandled because her star status overshadowed the need for proper training and development within the industry.

Lynch also touched on Rousey’s late entry into wrestling, noting that while Rousey found enjoyment in it, she did not have a lifelong passion for the sport. The full interview provides further insight into Lynch’s perspective on the matter.
