Ronda Rousey is taking her talents to the NetherRealm
The Baddest Woman on the Planet and reigning Raw Women’s Champion was a special guest at today’s “Mortal Kombat 11” reveal event in Los Angeles, where she was officially announced as the voice of Sonya Blade in the upcoming fighting game.
Following a gameplay demonstration, Rousey was officially introduced as Sonya’s voice actor in a behind-the-scenes highlight reel that showed her at work in the booth. Rousey then came onstage for a brief interview where she discussed the secrecy of the project, the particulars of voice acting, and the overlap between her real-life moveset and that of her digital counterpart.
“This is a dream come true. I tried to grow up to be Sonya Blade, as close as I could,” said The Baddest Woman on the Planet. “Now instead of being the closest thing I can be to Sonya Blade, I am actually Sonya Blade.”
Joining Rousey at the event were Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Zelina Vega, who didn’t get in on the presentation itself but were rocking some A-plus cosplay in the crowd.
