Raquel Rodriguez was one of the highlights of NXT television, where she even became the NXT Women’s Champion. She was eventually called up to the main roster on Friday Night SmackDown. Rodriguez also commented on her title match against Ronda Rousey a couple of months ago.

On the May 13 episode of WWE SmackDown, Ronda Rousey issued an open challenge for her Smackdown Women’s Title. Rodriguez ended up answering the challenge and the two had a solid match.

Fans and peers alike were impressed by Raquel Rodriguez’s performance in the match. While speaking on The Zaslow Show, Rodriguez stated that she feels her match against Ronda Rousey was very abrupt.

“I envision myself becoming Women’s Champion, 100%. I’m always thinking of when my moment is going to come, but also live in the present, and take every moment for what it is. Have the opportunity when it presents itself — like my match with Ronda [Rousey], It was very abrupt and not expected, but I loved every minute. I think the unexpected is the best part of it…In the moment it’s like, this is Ronda Rousey, she’s the baddest woman on the planet, but she’s also in the way of my goal, which is to win the SmackDown Women’s title. I’m going to take her as I do with any other opponent and take her very seriously.” 


We will have to wait and see what the company will have planned for Raquel Rodriguez in the coming weeks. With her looks and power, she can certainly become a future champion.
