Ronda Rousey wanted to wrestle barefoot but ‘they berated me into wearing shoes’

Above is a fun little Q&A current Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey did on her YouTube channel. During said Q&A, while talking about how much she loves Matt Riddle, she dropped this little tidbit:

“I get it. I get the barefoot thing, I totally do. They, like, berated me into wearing shoes. And, like, I understand there are a lot of safety issues with shoes, you know? So, please, I hope you don’t hurt your heel or anything but it’s really fucking cool and I love that you do it.”

No word on who “they” are but imagine “the baddest woman on the planet” out there wrestling matches with no shoes on. Hey, it works for Riddle.

Then again, the shoes work just fine too.
