Quote Ronda Rousey recently spoke with the folks at Planeta Wrestling to promote next month's WrestleMania 34 pay-per-view. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On who she would like to face in WWE: "Right now, all of my focus is on Stephanie [McMahon], and that's it. I kind of have blinders on when I'm focused on something. When I'm focused on something that's my whole universe. [Right now, it's] Stephanie McMahon, and beating the hell out of her at WrestleMania is the center of my whole universe. And I really can't afford to be focusing on anyone else other than her."

On her favorite WrestleMania moments: "As a kid, I just remember Hulk Hogan being my hero. My family didn't sit down and go, 'Oh, we're going to watch WrestleMania together!' it was just always on. I live in North Dakota, so wrestling is really big out there and it was just on TV. I was too little to understand, 'Oh, this is this event and that's that event.' Now that I'm older, WrestleMania I is of course my favorite, Rowdy" Roddy Piper and Hulk Hogan. ... That was something that I grew to appreciate as an adult."

On what she feels she brings to the WWE women's division: "I don't want to change anything that the women have been doing, they've been doing an amazing job. They've really been able to change the industry for the better and just the way people look at the women out there. I just consider myself a catalyst. I'm here to speed the process up and to make sure the hard work that they've been doing is seen and appreciated by more people."

Check out the complete Ronda Rousey interview above, or at YouTube.com.

She interview. Give us some names, instead of talking in kayfabe about Stephanie. Would have been good to know where she'd want to go next.
 
She was asked for her favourite moments plural and instead named her favourite wrestler. I don't think she understood the question.
 
I can see her as a catalyst. If nothing else, at the very least she brings more mainstream media to the womens division.

No she didn't. She listed the main event of the first WrestleMania, and also that wrestling was always on their TV at home growing up and was why Hulk Hogan was her hero growing, and now looking back on it as an adult, she has come to appreciate that fact more than anything, just that it was always on.

Quote Thanks to Chris Van Vliet of WSVN-TV for sending this in:

Happy Saturday! I just chatted with Ronda Rousey in Los Angeles for her new movie MILE 22 and wanted to pass the highlights along to you.

Ronda talks about the low expectations fans had for her WWE debut at WrestleMania 34, the difference between acting in a movie and acting in WWE, the advice she got from The Rock and what it's like working with director Peter Berg.

The expectations WWE fans have of her:

"I think that going into any new career like wrestling or acting or anything like that a lot of people assume that you can only be really good at one thing and that if you master one thing you'll never be able to master anything else as well. There's a lot of low expectations going into things and it's harder to learn with the world watching as opposed to being able to learn in private. But it comes with the territory and it makes things a little bit more difficult but it also helps me improve even quicker that my first match is at WrestleMania."

The differences between performing in a film and performing in WWE:

"It's very different in that you only get one shot and everything is live. People aren't going to reset the shot for every single scene so you need to be very aware of where the cameras are at all times to make sure they're catching what's going on. If you're acting in a movie you're just going to do exactly what you need to do and you're just in with the character but with WWE you have to think about 'Ok, I have to take moment because this happened and I have to register on my face that this happened. I have to wait a few minutes because I'm facing this way and it's going to take them three seconds to come around this side and have this person cue me.' So it's being very aware of that and also memorizing dialogue very last minute because you show up and you don't know what's going on and they're like 'Here's two pages of dialogue. Don't screw it up, they're going to be a live audience actively trying to make you screw up. Go.'"

Advice she got from The Rock:

"He didn't really give me any advice. Just to have fun. The object is to have fun, that's all."

 
Fans expectations are high and she's done OK so far. But until (if she ever does) do a full time schedule wrestling 3-4 days a week, every week, we won't know fully how good she is or how well she can cope with what's expected of every other woman on the roster.
 
The second question was a dumb one to ask her because it was obvious what the answer was without wasting a question on it. In film you get as many takes as you want to get it right and in wrestling if you screw up it's caught on camera.
 
I'm surprised The Rock wouldn't give her more advice. She could really do with his knowledge of cutting a world class promo.
