The personal takes on Mortal Kombat 11 have been a bit of a mixed bag. The NetherRealm release seems to be quite polarizing, receiving plaudits for the gameplay, but there are other aspects which have been the subject of criticism, with Ronda Rousey's playing Sonya Blade one of the biggest sore points among fans.
It was recently reported that players have been turned off by the UFC Hall of Famer's voice acting, but that's not the only reason they have taken issue with her inclusion.
Her tweet on the Sandy Hook massacre - an incident that saw 2o children and six adults murdered - is said to serve as an example. Ronda tweeted that the massacre was a Government hoax. She continued to defend her stance following the backlash but eventually issued an apology.
Rousey's comments as it pertains to transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox has led many to believe she's transphobic and it's another reason it's being said that she should not be in MK11.
“She can try hormones, chop her pecker off, but it’s still the same bone structure a man has," Rousey said on Fallon during her UFC days, via the New York Post. "It’s an advantage. I don’t think it’s fair.”
These seem to be the main reasons fans regret having to come across a character voiced by the former WWE Raw Women's champion. Her voice acting sent the internet into an uproar following the game's release last week, and wrestling fans would probably agree.
While Ronda's skill in the ring is undoubtedly solid, her work on the mic has been described as atrocious by many a WWE fan and the transition into the world of gaming doesn't appear to have done her any favors.
Nevertheless, the 32-year-old will continue to feature in different forms of entertainment given her celebrity status, but she's off to have a baby now so she might be out of the public eye for an extended period.
