Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey is the number one women's wrestler in the world according to Pro Wrestling Illustrated despite not debuting until WrestleMania 34, which occurred halfway through the magazine's evaluation period.
The following statement has been released by the publication's Senior Writer, Dan Murphy.
"Ronda's success in such a short period of time is absolutely unprecedented," said Murphy. "She has become one of the biggest stars in WWE, male or female, and is setting a new standard for excellence in the women's division. When it comes to our ranking criteria of championships won, quality of opposition, technical proficiency, won-loss record, and promotional 'push,' she is unmatched. Ronda was an easy pick as number one."
"Wow! That's absolutely incredible," she said. "I don't really know how to react to that. I really appreciate it. I don't know how much I deserve it, but wow!"
