In case you missed it, Ronda Rousey was not happy after Money in the Bank, so on Raw she went after new Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss. To get to The Goddess, Ronda was willing to go through anyone who got in her way - including her WrestleMania 34 tag partner, General Manager Kurt Angle.
Then Ronda apologized. Kind of.
So Kurt accepted. Kind of.
Or, as my main man Geno Mrosko said in the Cageside offices, “uh, I think Angle just threatened Rousey? lol”
Ronda, I understand your frustration, and I know you’re tired of some of the other women disrespecting you. But that’s part of what makes the WWE different. Verbal attacks are very common. Taking advantage, and bending the rules to benefit yourself will occur, such as Alexa cashing in her MITB contract and winning the Raw Womens’ Title. You need to keep your cool. You have a huge future in WWE. But when you attacked me for trying to keep you calm, you broke that bond we shared. You’re smarter than that. The fact that you’re a true badass, and that you could whoop just about any man or woman on the planet is what I like most about you. BUT if this ever occurs again, do not forget who I am, and what I’m capable of. That’s not a threat, it’s the truth. I Hope you learn from this situation, and we can remain very close. You have the world in the palm of your hands Ronda, if you make the right decisions. It’s damn true!!!
Because “BUT if this ever occurs again, do not forget who I am, and what I’m capable of. That’s not a threat, it’s the truth,” isn’t just a cool way for Angle to get to his catchphrase. As another of my ride or dies, Kyle Decker, pointed out “‘This is not a threat’ is what people say when they’re threatening someone”.
It’s in The Geneva Convention. You can look it up.
