MMA Fighter Ronda Rousey's Always Been A Big Dragon Ball Z Fan
posted on by Bamboo Dong
The anime community has been in a bit of a tizzy ever since MMA fighter, Olympian, actress, and author Ronda Rousey showed up to Wrestlemania with The Rock and completely dominated, all while rocking a Dragon Ball Z "It's Over 9000!!" shirt. Especially since there's a large contingent of anime fans who also profess to love professional wrestling.
Rousey has been a fan for quite a while, though. She did a great interview back in 2013 with Fight Hub where she talked about her long-time obsession with Dragon Ball Z, and her huge cartoon crush on Vegeta.
She also used to moderate a Pokemon forum, and can talk circles around anyone about it. Anime aside, Rousey is just all-around smart and very dedicated to her craft. Here's a fantastic interview she gave on Good Morning America last week about the sport.
Basically, Rousey is pretty great for a lot of reasons, so if your Twitter is still blowing up about it, this might provide some context.
