Ronda Rousey’s stint with the WWE likely will go on longer than anyone expected.

The former MMA fighter said she’s having so much fun that she’s looking into altering her timeline of her work with the WWE, which includes putting off starting a family.

“I love this way more than I ever thought I would,” Rousey told ESPN. “We had a set timeline set, and now we aren’t so sure about it because I love it so much. I guess that’s the best thing that could’ve happened, that I would love it so much it would be so hard to stop.

“I can see why people have a hard time leaving this industry because it’s such joy to be a part of every day.”

Since her WWE debut in January, Rousey has become one of the most popular faces in the sport. She said balancing wrestling with her other engagements is similar to a juggling act, but if she stumbles it’s not the end of the world.

“It’s not like I’m juggling on a unicycle, on a balance beam like over a bed of knives, you know what I mean?” Rousey said. “I’m juggling on a unicycle that’s in a bouncy house. If I fall off, I go boing right back up to the unicycle. It’s fine. I don’t die. I fall off.”

Rousey, 31, previously said she didn’t expect to stay with the WWE long, since she wanted to start a family soon with her husband, MMA fighter Travis Browne.

Rousey will face Alexa Bliss for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship at SummerSlam on Sunday, which is one of the most anticipated matches on the card.
