Jonathan Coachman did a quick interview with TMZ Sports about Ronda Rousey's appearance at WrestleMania 34 tonight. Rousey will be teaming with Kurt Angle to take on Stephanie McMahon and Triple H in a mixed tag match.
Coachman said Rousey is in a high pressure situation that nobody else has done in WWE before.
"There's been so many different reactions to Ronda coming in to the WWE. Some really, really positive, some skeptical and some in between. Here's the difference with Ronda Rousey compared to probably anybody else you can name in the history of the business. She's coming in right at the top, her in-ring debut is gonna be at WrestleMania. You talk about pressure! I mean, that pressure is real, it's legit."
Coachman said all of the women in the WWE would want to work with Rousey because of the reaction she's getting at the moment, and it will benefit any of them in terms of a business move.
"Trust me when I say that there are a long line of females that would love nothing better - I don't care what they tell you - than to run a program with Ronda Rousey. When she comes out to the arena - I'm there - she's gets as big a pop, if not the biggest pop of anybody on the show, but that's only going to last for so long until she starts working matches. If the girls are smart, they don't complain about Ronda Rousey, they embrace her and say, 'Let me help you, because that is what's good for business, and what's good for business is good for me.'"
