Sheamus with some high praise for Ronda.
The UFC Hall Of Famer Ronda Rousey has been with WWE for a total of eight months now and throughout her time with the company she has made her main roster debut at WWE's biggest show of the year WrestleMania. Ronda challenged for the RAW Women's Championship at the 'Money In The Bank' PPV and she is receiving her second opportunity at the title on August 19th at SummerSlam. In interviews and on various platforms Ronda has shared how much she loves being a part of the WWE and even her husband Travis Browne has stated that he has never seen Ronda as happy as she's been now that she's in WWE.
A colleague of Ronda's who has noticed her great attitude is former 3-time WWE Champion Sheamus. "The Celtic Warrior" spoke with TMZ Sports as he was coming out of the airport and during the brief discussion Sheamus shared his thoughts on Ronda Rousey and some of his interactions with her thus far.
“She’s doing great. When I first met her a couple months ago I was blown away by her personality and her attitude. She loves wrestling, she’s a great asset to the women’s division, she’s tearing it up and she had a great match at WrestleMania as well so, its great man.” He continued, “Anyone who brings eyes to the WWE and who brings attention and puts more people in seats is a benefit to WWE so, that’s how it works man, show business."
Sheamus has a big match himself coming up with SummerSlam implications. He and Cesaro will be going taking on their longtime rivals The New Day next week on SmackDown Live and the winners of that match will go on to SummerSlam to challenge The Bludgeon Brothers for the SmackDown Live Tag Team Championships.
