Booker T weighed in on Ronda Rousey’s admission that she does not really remember where she’s going ahead of time. That isn’t a problem for him because he has dealt with similar issues throughout his career. Booker also believes it demonstrates Ronda’s plans to work stuff out in wwe.
Ronda Rousey has an incredible career. She’s begun taking the wrestling world by storm with her MMA. Ronda Rousey released a statement saying that she can’t remember a lot of what she does on stage. She’s counting on the person she’s operating with to help her get through it. Personally, I’d like to state unequivocally that there is no shame in forgetting things.
I kept forgetting things and couldn’t memorise anything. I sometimes ask myself, Where exactly are we? at a certain point during the game. Okay, now that we’re here, I’ll try figuring it out. That happens all of the time in the wrestling business, so I did not hold Ronda responsible for it. But her telling that really just shows how hard she’s trying to figure out what was going on.
Booker T about Ronda Rousey’s defeat
Booker T went on to explain that Ronda Rousey’s defeat could reinforce the idea that she’s always learning. A loss, even if it is a tap-out loss for Ronda, especially after making such a statement, will set the tone as far as, ‘I’m still having to learn as well as I got found.’ Next problem you know, and I would not want to reserve this, it’s just the method wrestling usually works. He believes Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair will become the best of friends.
So there’s a lot that could happen with this thing, but I’d go with Charlotte. Because I’m looking to Ronda to help me overcome some obstacles. If I’m going to book it, I need that heel to actually make that babyface chase.
Booker T believes that WWE ought to have Ronda Rousey end up losing some games in order to gain sense of empathy for her. He does not want audience to presume she’ll be dominant and force everybody to tag out. As I said, having the babyface chasing me is just a part of the job, he explained. That is an attempt to entice fans who support the babyfaces to come to the arena and rally behind that babyface.
I know what it takes to get them there the hump. That is the path I would take as well. We can always put Ronda back in her place, but I think we need to show some sense of empathy for her.
We need to change people’s perceptions of Ronda Rousey. They believe that every time Ronda Rousey enters the ring, she will make someone tap out and win. We can’t condition the fans to think that way just because she came from the UFC.
