Ronda Rousey

Why Did Ronda Rousey Say She Didn’t Enjoy Her Royal Rumble Victory? 

In an interview, Ronda Rousey disclosed that she was not only planning to return as a heel at the 2022 Royal Rumble, however she was also prepared for the treatment Batista received at the 2014 Royal Rumble. I expected boos, said Rousey. I arrived with my shield up, so I didn’t get to relish the moment because I was anticipating what I would get on the way out. So when I happened to come out everyone popped, I just obstructed them out and moved in, did my work & got out.

Expecting to appear as a heel on Raw following her Rumble victory, Rousey was informed no, no, no… you have to smile & stop becoming a b***h because Vince McMahon made a decision after hearing the pop she received from the St. Louis crowd at The Dome, saying, Well, they popped for her real big, so she’s a babyface, While being a babyface can be entertaining, Rousey would rather be a heel because she enjoys being a b***h and deems it an honour outlet. Her idol, Rowdy Roddy Piper, is viewed as one of the biggest heels of all time, & she aspires to be that type of heel.

He was the real heel who wanted you to despise him, not the cool guy heel, said Rousey, who tried to point out to Cormier that her Piper replica jacket is stab proof. This is the heel I desire to be, the heel who elicits emotional vitriol while also making the other person likeable. It’s much easier to make people dislike someone than it is to make them like them, and I think a lot of people forget that the job of a heel is to get the babyface over, to just not have everyone believe you’re a cool heel.

Shayna Baszler

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.
