They barely let Rousey speak at all as they jeer her. Rousey tries to take it all in stride and forces herself to laugh.

The audience is more into this than they’ve been into anything for a very long time. They erupt over everything she says. Then Rousey talks and the crowd boos raucously. The crowd literally chants “Kick her ass!” when Becky says she’ll kick Rousey’s ass. Rousey inadvertently comes across as a heel as the crowd just drowns her words out with boos.

Becky, who won the Royal Rumble last night, says she chooses Rousey as the champion she wants to face.
