Ronda Rousey has trained at some of the best facilities in the world, but in 2017, she admitted that the WWE Performance Center is one of the best athletic facilities she’s ever visited. A meaningful statement considering she’s both an Olympic medalist and a former UFC champion.

“They took us for our first little tour through the Performance Center,” Rousey said. “As someone who’s been in a couple Olympics and trained at the Olympic training centers, I really believe that the way the WWE Performance Center caters to their specific athletes is superior to the U.S. training center, for sure.”

In the same interview with ESPN, Rousey explained what separates the Performance Center from other training venues:

“With the facilities they have, the individual attention all the athletes have, and how everything is so close and made to be as convenient as possible, I couldn’t have been more impressed. It’s not a surprise that they’ve had so much success in cultivating their own talent.”

It’d be hard to argue against what Rousey said considering we’ve since seen just how much training at the Performance Center helped her transition from Octagon to the squared circle. Ronda Rousey’s unprecedented rise to the top of the WWE’s women’s division shows just how much of an asset the WWE PC is for new Superstars and veterans alike.
