Ronda Rousey may be one of WWE’s biggest stars and is presently vying for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, but she has time to think about everyone else, along with her friend Shayna Baszler. They have a long tradition together in their MMA career paths as 50 percent of the Four Horsewoman of MMA, & Rousey intends to see more of the veteran NXT Women’s Champion on the main roster.
When asked about Baszler, Rousey responded, You’re completely correct regarding Shayna being one of perfect people on the show; I just require them to get their s*** together and realise it. Baszler controlled on the black and gold brand, and she currently holds the record for the most combined reigns with the NXT Women’s title over her two reigns. She has yet to win a singles title on WWE Raw or WWE SmackDown since joining the main roster, despite being a former two-time WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion.
Baszler has been utilized more commonly since Paul Levesque took over as Chief Creative Officer, resulting in a title bout against Liv Morgan at WWE Clash At The Castle. Baszler & Rousey have also appeared in recent segments together, implying that WWE is capitalising on their off-screen friendship. Rousey would then face Liv Morgan in an Extreme Rules match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at the upcoming WWE premium live event WWE Extreme Rules.
Becky Lynch is making it abundantly evident that The Man has returned. Lynch changed it up with her character upon taking a pregnancy leave. She decided to return at SummerSlam 2021 and defeated Bianca Belair in less than 30 seconds to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Lynch adopted a villain persona, but fans proceeded to cheer for her and wished for The Man’s return. The WWE Universe got their wish when Belair pinned Lynch in the first round of SummerSlam 2022.
Lynch continued by stating that she enjoys being a babyface again, amidst being unable to fully appreciate it due to her shoulder injury. She described a meeting with WWE’s Chief Content Officer, Paul Levesque, who expressed his faith that Lynch should return to a babyface role. Lynch would be all for it, saying she’s glad Levesque has taken over as creative director. Lynch is now in the midst of her process of recovery. For the time being, she appears to be confident that she will be able to wrestle on WWE’s main event of 2023.
