Ronda Rousey claimed recently on the Tommy Toe Hold Show that she is the perfect person to play Wonder Woman in the highly anticipated Batman v. Superman movie. However, Rousey takes it one step farther by openly mocking and insulting the woman that was chosen – Gal Gadot.
When asked which movie she thought would have been better if it starred her instead, the first movie role that came to her mind was Wonder Woman. In reference to the casting of Gal Gadot in one of the most coveted roles for a female actress, Ronda Rousey had this to say:
“I should have been Wonder Woman, man! That girl [Gal Gadot] couldn’t curl a two-pound weight, what’s so wonderful about that? I don’t understand.”
Ronda Rousey is definitely not someone that can dish it out without taking it – especially when it comes to physically demanding roles. For those that are not very familiar with Ronda Rousey or what she does for a living, all you need to know is that she is one of the most popular fighters in the world of mixed martial arts (MMA). You can even call Ronda Rousey the “female Floyd Mayweather” – especially since she is undisputed and undefeated (10-0).
In addition to being the Queen of Submissions in the UFC octagon, Ronda Rousey has also started to make a name for herself in Hollywood through action movies – including such highly-anticipated films as The Expendables 3 and Fast and Furious 7.
When you think of Wonder Woman, you think of someone that is sexy and attractive – both points that Ronda Rousey and Gal Gadot can check off of their lists. However, you also have to convinced that the woman playing Wonder Woman can kick your butt while looking good. It is crystal clear that Ronda Rousey can do just that (keep in mind her 10-0 MMA record.)
On the other hand, Gal Gadot does not look like she would be able to do very much of anything in a fight.
Even though you might think that Ronda Rousey was a little harsh with her comments about Gal Gadot not being “wonderful” enough for this particular superhero role, she is not necessarily the only person that feels that way. All you have to do is check out the reactions and comments that are posted on Twitter:
Not that I don’t like Gal Gadot, but I personally feel Ronda Rousey would’ve been a better Wonder Woman..

However, there are still many more people that feel Ronda Rousey is way out of line and that Gal Gadot is still the perfect choice for Wonder Woman.
@RondaRousey I’m truly shocked by your comments about Gal Gadot playing Wonder Woman. That someone who knows fitness can be so ignorant

This is kinda funny as I have watched Expendables 3 twice now and can confirm that Ronda Rousey is a worst actor… http://t.co/QJAIAkGMi7

What do YOU think? Is Ronda Rousey right or is she just getting a little bit too far ahead of herself now that she has a couple of big-budget movies under her belt?
