In the aftermath of her not-so-productive confrontation with Ronda Rousey on Monday night’s episode of Raw, Dana Brooke has taken to social media to clarify her motivations.
In case you missed it, Dana attempted to take Ronda to task last night for recent comments regarding the legitimacy of the wrestling business … and it did NOT end well for her.
Dana addressed this in a lengthy social media post which begins saying:
“SHE IS STRONG BUT SHE IS TIRED” -take a look in my eyes…. Last night I HAD NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE! I meant every word I said… I felt like I was going to cry, but I wanted to be BRAVE for all of YOU… I wanted to use my platform to be the voice of ALL #wweuniverse ! -Listen, we only expose so much on social media, but behind close doors we face so much! Last night, you heard “Ashley” you heard the true passion behind my heart that is bottled up inside “DANA” … I wanted you all to see ME.. everyday I look like this, not heavy makeup, hair up in the gym grinding away to look the best I can & be the best I can be. Most of you know what I have been through in the past year in a half, I lost & loved , I lost vision, I wasn’t comfortable, here I am now- this is me.
She then turned attention to Rousey, asking, “Are you tough because you think you make your rules here because no one will stand up to you!?”
“Let me tell you something sister,” Dana continued. “I respected you, from the moment you walked into the locker room, I told you leave your bags here, we are a family no one will ever mess with your stuff, you were shocked… Now I know why, because you are the one who would destroy others, you are the one who would play nasty games and destroy personal property, and you are the one to disown OUR family and leave.”
