According to Ronday Rousey, the former women’s bantamweight champion, the mental side of MMA outweighs the physicality of WWE. She shared her sentiments on mixed martial arts and professional wrestling during a sit-down with Megan Olivi.
Rousey has been on both sides, and she feels that there is more mental stress in fighting mainly the time one spends in the training camp and the press not to mention how one thinks about it throughout. WWE is a grind as its nonstop while in fights one can at least get time to recover.
The 32-year-old said that she had it easy with her WWE career as she had been relieved from doing the yearlong shows that her contemporaries are subjected to. She said that she did the easy version.
Olympic is the only thing that can be compared to the mental strain in MMA because you train your whole life and you have just a day to pay off.
Rousey wants to start a family with her husband, and she will have to put her WWE career on hold. As for now, she doesn’t want anything that will stress her as she said that she is getting older.
