WWE wrestlers have taken to Twitter, tackling Ronda Rousey, professional RAW wrestler and American actress, for revealing wrestling acts are scripted and not real.
She made this disclosure in her “Ronda on the Road” vlog.
“I’m going to disrespect the sport that they all love so much. Wrestling is scripted. It’s made up. It’s not real,” she said.
“I did everything I could, everything I could to respect this business. I worked my ass off and I exceeded every expectation. I poured my heart out and sacrificed my body for your entertainment.
“And what’d you do, huh? You booed me out of the Staples Center in Los Angeles, my home. You cheer for Becky while I’m out here working my ass off to entertain you.
“Well, you know what? No. I’m done pretending. I am no longer here to entertain you.”
Rousey recently crashed a RAW segment featuring her rivals Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair and Stephanie McMahon ahead of the Women’s Championship at Wrestlemania 35.
Following her rants, fans and fellow wrestlers have tackled the WWE star but the wrestler is yet to respond to the backlash.
Can someone please remind Captain Badass here that her last two fights before coming to WWE ended with her unconscious and sobbing in the cage?
Four years ago, you were untouchable. Now? Not so much.Advertisement

Thank you Ms Flair for being an exemplary role model. This "wrestling isn't real" thing isn't cute, especially when Ronda has a mainstream audience majority of whom who already fail to understand the nuance, emotion, and art that go into wrestling.

Ronda Rousey enjoyed success as a wrestler; actress; and author, featuring in movies like “The Expendables 3″, “Furious 7″ and “Mile 22″.
She has also been regarded as a symbol of female empowerment and praised for her involvement in the polarizing female mixed martial arts industry.
