WATCH: When UFC & WWE Star Ronda Rousey Filmed Her Visit To Bangor
The camera was rolling just about three years ago to the day when the former professional fighter landed in Bangor for the WWE RAW event at the Cross Insurance Center! Come along for the ride!
Watch as Ronda Rousey disembarks the plane at Bangor International Airport at 1:30 a.m. and then makes her way to her hotel. Then, the following morning she has breakfast at the former Nicky's Cruisin' Diner on Union Street, where she eventually gave the restaurant a rating "above Cracker Barrel." Man, that's saying a lot!
You'll see the one-time UFC fighter get to the Cross Insurance Center very early for that night's event and then gladly take the time to greet and talk with a group of fans who are patiently waiting for a chance to meet the stars.
Make sure you make it towards the end of this video to see what makes it really special, as Ronda Rousey finds out that Bangor will be the first place on the tour where her new "Rowdy" gloves will be for sale. Following her discovery, she then takes a set to a much appreciative young fan still waiting outside who will eventually break down into tears while meeting her hero. A pretty cool moment!
Nowadays Ms. Rousey is enjoying motherhood, as she and her husband Travis Browne, another professional fighter, welcomed a new baby girl into the world on September 27th of this year. Congratulations on the birth of La’akea Makalapuaokalanipō Browne! Ms. Rousey also hosts a brand new show on ESPN+ called "Rowdy’s Places", which "gives fans an inside look at the people and places that make combat sports what it is today", according to her website.
