As you may have heard, UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey made an appearance at Wrestlemania 31 March 29 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
She enjoyed the experience so much she says she can hardly wait to do more professional wrestling for the WWE.
"I hit the ground running," Rousey told Roddy Piper. "The first I ever wrestled was at Wrestlemania with an attendance record at Levi's Stadium. I had a problem when I left. There's no way I can't not go back in there again. There's no way. After experiencing that, there's nothing like it.
"The second I left I was already thinking, 'How can I possibly go back?' I didn't even change [clothes] yet. I hadn't even gotten out of my outfit yet."
Rousey appeared alongside action star Dwayne Johnson in a showdown with WWE brass Stephanie McMahon and her husband 'Triple H,' who she ended up hip tossing.
"I was nervous, in a way, when I knew [the appearance] was coming up," Rousey said. "I was trying to look like I was cool but my heart and my chest were [pounding]. I was trying not to look obvious but I think I totally did."
Weighing the differences between fighting and professional wrestling, Rousey admits the threat of physical harm wins out over the stress making a misstep in the ring.
"I think it's the uncertainty of the fight," Rousey said of pre-fight jitters. "I don't know exactly what's going to happen. I don't know if I'm going to get really hurt. I don't know what they're going to come out with. My mind is still running over a million things that could possibly happen, whereas when I know exactly what's going to go down, roughly, because it didn't go down exactly as I thought.
"Give or take. I'm like, 'OK, this is the way it's going to be and if it's going to be this way I'm not going to screw it up.' Whereas in a fight, I'm like, 'Don't get stuck in a certain way. It can go any way so don't screw it up.' It's a different kind of anxiety."
Rousey defends her title to Bethe Correia Aug. 1 at UFC 190 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Brazil.
