Ronda Rousey got an unusually rude welcome on Raw Monday night, garnering boos from the crowd from the moment she walked out. In fact, at one point it got so bad Rousey stumbled over her words. While talking about Sasha Banks, whom Rousey beat Sunday night at the Royal Rumble, the words turned to gibberish, causing Rousey to smile and say, “Alright, alright. You got me to stutter. Good Job.” It’s clear Rousey is no longer the darling of the WWE, that honor now goes to former SmackDown champ and Royal Rumble winner, Becky Lynch. And while Rousey used to enjoy adoring fans chanting HER name, obviously, times have changed. The majority of the crowd continuously broke out into chants of “Becky” while Rousey spoke. Rousey and Lynch had to postpone a match after Lynch suffered a real broken nose last November when a punch from Nia Jax actually landed. So on Monday night, Lynch gave the raucous crowd exactly what they wanted when she joined Rousey in the ring. “At WrestleMania, I’m going to break your mystique,” Lynch told Rousey. “I am going to take your title, and I am going to kick your ass in front to the whole world.”

While it’s easy to blame Instagram’s new Discover page features for the endless scrolls we find ourselves doing at 3AM, the page does highlight a lot of cool people and projects, from Pat McGrath’s Gold 001 makeovers in Paris to the best beards in honor of Movember. Today, Instagram is showcasing “33 Unstoppable Women.” The list includes pro surfer Bethany Hamilton, Olympic hurdler and bobsledder Lolo Jones, and UFC champ Ronda Rousey. “Meet the real life Katniss Everdeens – Judo champs, hunters, archers, ninjas, boxers, BMX riders and more female powerhouses,” the page states.

It is an interesting time to be considered a female role model. Perhaps more than ever before, we recognise the need for women to speak out, stand up and be counted.

My note this morning was ‘Wake up gorgeous!’” UFC champion Ronda Rousey says. “And sometimes it’s ‘Get up champ!’ So the first thing I see in the morning is a motivating compliment.” There’s no doubt that the boxer is strong, physically, but she also understands the strength that comes with exercising her mental muscle—it’s those positive meditations, beliefs and actions that help carry Rousey, 28, through. “My mantra? ‘No one has the right to beat me.’ It’s not something that I repeat.
