Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair had been feuding ever since the former UFC star returned to WWE during the Royal Rumble. With every passing week, their feud got more and more personal until it reached a boiling point. There was a reason why Ronda Rousey lost as well.
Charlotte Flair defended her Smackdown Women’s Championship against Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 38 Night One. After a lot of back and forth action, it was Flair who stood tall in the end after beating Rousey.
Fans really didn’t like the match much due to the nature of its ending either. According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE plans on having Flair and Rousey extend their feud, which is why Rousey lost in the first place.
“Charlotte Flair beat Ronda Rousey to keep the Smackdown title after a ref bump. The idea is for this to be a long-term program and thus the belief was Flair had to win the first match, even if Flair got the better of Rousey as well in the angles leading up to it. One thing that looks obvious is that Rousey is not going to be over and have the meaning she did when she first came.”
We will have to wait and see how WWE will be booking Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey’s feud in the coming weeks as their feud will continue for a while now.
