Ronda Rousey reveals travelling was partly behind quitting WWE after having to sit in car with broken back

RONDA ROUSEY has admitted agonising car trips with a broken back helped convince her to quit WWE.

The UFC legend famously arrived on the wrestling scene at the 2018 Royal Rumble and debuted at that year’s WrestleMania.

She worked a full-time schedule with the company and soon captured the Raw Women’s Title until Becky Lynch controversially took it from her at WrestleMania 35 in April 2019.

Rousey has not been seen on WWE TV since after taking time away to try and start a family with husband Travis Browne, despite dropping several hints of a comeback.

She still has a contract with WWE until 2021 but it appears unlikely she will step foot in the ring again.

Rousey, 33, revealed the stress on her body especially travelling between shows made her think twice about her future.

She told Digital Spy: “I love wrestling but I think it was maybe Sarah Rowe (Sarah Logan in WWE) who told me this, she wrestles for free but they pay her to travel.

“The hardest part I think was just not being able to lay down horizontally, you know. Taking a bunch of hard bumps, your back hurts and you just want to lay down.

“All I wanted to do between shows is lay down with my legs up and travelling you’re just sitting upright all the time and my back would kill me.

“So the actual act of travelling I do not miss it all, it was the absolute worse.

“My bottom vertebrae in my back is actually broken in half.

“So that has something to do with it. But travelling on a broken back is the absolute worst.

“I love being home on my extra firm Tempur-Pedic mattress every night.”
