Her last appearance in the ring came at WrestleMania 35 when she lost her title in the main event to Becky Lynch.

She declared that she and her husband Travis Browne, who already has two children from a previous relationship, were hoping to start their own family.

That has not stopped her from hinting at a potential return to WWE – despite firing several shots at the business and its performers on social media.

However, Rousey has now provided an insight into how she kept herself occupied during the coronavirus pandemic.

And instead of punching people, she has been doing her fighting on the much-loved game World of Warcraft.

She told Digital Spy: “[Gaming’s] been immensely important, not just for myself but for my kids and my husband.

“We’ve always been a big gaming family and it’s really helped a lot. So it’s kind of become our pandemic-safe family activity that we’ve been able to continue, with everything being as crazy as it is.”

The 33-year-old continued: “When I first started dating my husband I was playing WoW all the time and so he wanted to play because he wanted to spend time with me and then all my kids started playing and we’d like run raids and Dungeons and everything together.”

Rousey also revealed that she was first introduced to the game while working on the production of The Expendables 3 in 2014.

She struggled at first to get to grips with it – until move star Vin Diesel showed her the ropes on the set of Furious 7.

Rousey added: “I mentioned to Vin Diesel’s sister that I started playing WoW and she was like, ‘No way, Vin’s gonna love you. He’s been playing WoW forever.’”

“So we would actually meet up after filming to play WoW and he actually showed me the light. He was like, ‘Oh you dear, sweet angel, let me show you how to move with the mouse.’

“[Vin’s’] been playing since the beginning, I will never learn as much as he’s forgotten about WoW.

“I remember being so mad at him like, ‘I can’t control the camera, this is all over the place,’ and he would try to like help me level up so I’d at least get like a flying mount so then I graduated to a laptop with a mouse.

“Now I’m like completely immersed with a big gaming PC and a curved monitor, I’ve completely been converted. It started as a casual thing and now it’s become a lifestyle.”
