Kurt Angle Says Ronda Rousey’s WWE Career Could Be Bigger Than UFC


Kurt Angle has had the opportunity to work closely with Ronda Rousey in the infancy of her professional wrestling career. The WWE Hall Of Famer teamed up with Rousey in her first-ever WWE match at WrestleMania 34. The pair of former Olympians defeated Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in a Mixed Tag Team match.

Since then, Rousey has won the Raw Women’s Title and headlined the first-ever all-female WWE pay-per-view (PPV), Evolution. Rousey has really taken to professional wrestling well in such a short amount of time. Angle told Sam Roberts at Ringside Collectibles’ Ringside Fest that he thinks when it’s all said and done, Rousey will be remembered more for what she did in the WWE than in UFC:

“I can’t believe how well, how quickly she adapted to it,” Angle said. “I felt like it was me. A couple of weeks ago, she cut a promo (on Nikki Bella) in the ring and I was thinking that she was getting it way too quickly.

“This girl has been the best in judo, the best in the UFC but I think this is her thing. I think the WWE is the thing she’ll be the most known for. If healthy, another six-ten years, this will be her legacy.”
