The ex-UFC champion opens up about her tumble from the upper part of the boasting landscape, her eclectic second number and how to prepare for the apocalypse
Ronda Rousey was once again situated on the dais to promote an event she’s prominently included within, but this time the other participants weren’t fighters.
They weren’t even fellow WWE wrestlers, though she would do plenty of press over the next week in New York ahead of SummerSlam, where she will challenge for the women’s championship against Alexa Bliss.
On this day, Rousey was flanked by leading man Mark Wahlberg, head Peter Berg and others at a press junket at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills for the action movie Mile 22, which opened Friday in the United States.
Rousey represents Samantha Snow, an society CIA operative on an extraction assignment in Southeast Asia. She briefly appeared in the films Enraged 7 and The Expendables 3, but Mile 22 represents her first major war role, and along with her burgeoning profession in the WWE, Rousey’s second behave is off to a stirring start.
She learned to wrestle last year at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, where the training included plenty of seminars on behaving. But now she had to figure out the subtleties of film, too.
” A slew of parties doubt that anyone can employer more than one thing ,” Rousey said,” and it’s easy to get stuck in( the mindset of)’ you’re already good at this thing, you’re good at what’s comfy ,’ and it’s hard to try and learn something new with countries around the world check, because the first time you master something you do it in private.
” But I cherish those kinds of challenges and I enjoy beings disbelieving me .”
Rousey knows all about uncertainty for the purposes of the magnifying glass of the public eye. Her career was in shambles just 20 months before, and her post-UFC fates appeared gruesome as she duelled sadnes- and even entertained killing herself- in the aftermath of two ravaging defeats.
Rousey was loath to delve into the details of her emotional state following her autumn from the top of the boasting landscape, but the 31 -year-old opened up during a private speaking participation moderated by Berg at his Santa Monica boxing gym.
” I did a whole lot of crying, isolating myself ,” declared Rousey, who paused intermittently to touch away at rips with a tissue. “( Husband Travis Browne) supported me and let me sobbing and it lasted two years. I couldn’t have done it alone.
” There’s a lot of things you have to remember. Every missed opportunity is a bles in masquerade. I had to learn from experience. From the most difficult occasions, the best things have come as a result. Time is a great teacher. It’s that creed that time legislates, even bad times .”
Now, Rousey is experiencing slew of good times once again. She’s been praised for her actions in WWE and is already one of the organization’s crown draws.
