Ronda Rousey couldn’t be more pumped about the October women-only PPV “Evolution” … saying it’s the first step in making events that highlight female competitors the norm.
Rousey opened up about the event during an interview with Collider Editor-in-Chief Steven “Frosty” Weintraub while promoting her upcoming movie Mile 22.
“I think there’s been something like over 100 all-men PPVs up to this point. I think this is just the first step in it becoming normal,” Rousey said.
WWE announced last month more than 50 women will participate in the first-of-its-kind event. “The World’s Most Dangerous Woman” doesn’t think it’ll be the last.
“The first one — yes it’s a huge deal, it’s the first one — but after awhile, I think it’ll just become ‘of course the women have their own PPV! They do great every single time!’ I think it’s the first step to normalcy,” she added. “I’m excited!”
There’s no doubt Rousey will play a big role at “Evolution.” Before that happens, however, she’ll have the opportunity to win the RAW Women’s Championship on Sunday at Summerslam.
