While the WWE Universe seems to be enjoying Ronda Rousey’s run in WWE since she made her debut at the Royal Rumble, two names who have not had positive things to say about “Rowdy” Ronda as of late are MMA fighters Colby Covington and Miesha Tate.
In a recent interview with Fightful.com, Covington had the following to say on Rousey’s behavior so far on WWE TV. You can listen to the full interview in the video player above.
“She’s marking out, man. WWE did not pay her to go over there and mark out and the way she’s acting”, said Covington. “They paid her to go out there and be the Ronda that we all know and be the one who gets in people’s face’s and creates controversy and drama. She’s acting like a mark and she’s really ruining it for UFC fighters. She’s giving us a bad name and it sucks because I look forward to crossing over to WWE in the near future.”

About a month ago, while making an appearance at a media event for her new movie “Mile 22”, Rousey had the following to say on why she has scaled back her interview appearances in the past few months:
“I believe hearing me speak is a privilege, and it’s a privilege that’s been abused.”
Longtime UFC rival Miesha Tate was not too fond of Rousey’s comments, as she told TMZ “this is asinine. I think this is not the kind of attitude you should have when you’re someone who’s in a position of Ronda.”
Tate said that she thinks Rousey owes it to her fans to do media and interviews so they can hear her speak, adding, “I don’t think this is the type of attitude a role model should have.”
