Ronda Rousey recently appeared on Ellen and talked about her blossoming career as a WWE Superstar; you can read a few highlights (transcription credit to Bill Pritchard for Wrestlezone.com) and watch the video clip below:

Ronda Rousey comments on making the transition to WWE: 

WWE, the way I describe it, is it’s a live TV show about a wrestling tournament where everyone does their own stunts. And that’s pretty much it—it’s not fake fighting, it’s scripted. When I got slapped across the face [by Stephanie McMahon] the other day, that was a real slap. There’s no good way to fake that. They don’t bring out the rubber hand for me (laughs)

I think the main difference is, it’s like a team. I’ve never been on a team my whole life. I was a swimmer, I was alone. I did judo, that was alone, I was a fighter, that was alone. With WWE, it’s like a big team; everyone is working together to try and make it as great as possible.

Ronda comments on her status as a mixed martial arts fighter: 

I don’t know. I think it’s just as likely as me going back to another Olympics for judo. No one demanded a written resignation from me for judo, and I don’t really think the same thing is really necessary for fighting. I’m just doing what I enjoy, and WWE is what I enjoy now.
