Do Rousey and Tate really hate each other? (Or is it an act?)

Dana keeps saying "Ronda and Meisha hate each other".

I don't buy it. Something just does not add up.

Consider this:

1) I clearely recall in Rousey's interviews prior to start of filming of TUF when ever a reporter asked her does she hate Tate, the 1st words out of her mouth were "Hate is a strong word" implying she does not hate her. (She would then proceed with her usual spiel of how she respects Tate as an athlete and that she does not like Caraway)

2) In one of the very first scenes of TUF 18 where Rousey sees Tate on set for the very 1st time, Rousey's reaction is she greets Tate, walks up to her, shakes her hand AND bows to her at the same time. If in fact it is true that at that time Rousey did not know that Tate is replacing Zingano, that 1st reaction from Rousey shows that at that time she clearely DID NOT HATE Tate. Shaking another persons hand and bowing to them at the same time is in my opinion a gesture of humility and respect, not hate.

The next thing we know Rousey starts acting irrationally and starts giving Tate the finger every chance she gets without ANY indication what caused this rift all of a sudden. Something clearely happened after that opening scene and 2nd episode, but what ever it was it was not shown to us on TUF. Could it be that after filming that 1st "surprise" scene Dana advised them that for TUF 18 to succeed, they must "hate" each other? Could this all be an act?

Who knows? But the opening scene only reinforces the fact that Ronda isn't like this with everyone, which is why its funny to see her bashers try to pretend like how she's been with Tate on TUF is going to define her whole character and career.

I tend to side with your view.

I believe there is genuine animosity between the two; the gestures of respect you allude to I see all the time between chicks on social media who want to appear like the more mature and responsible one in front of their peers, i.e. "you're not well, I hope you get the help you need. hugs x" really means "you're a psycho b*tch, stay the f*ck away from me".

'page and 'shad were total bros when the cameras weren't on them, but I think Rousey and Tate are more akin to Tito and Shamrock.

They were definitely more cordial at the beginning.... but if I remember correctly it was when Tate's girl beat Baszler. Rhonda said that Tate celebrating her fighters victory was disrespectful to Baszler and the tension built from there. It was the next fight that Rhonda wouldn't shake her hand and flipped her off.

That was what I thought, anyway...

She also told her to fuck off, it was a very dynamic gesture.
