Ronda Rousey made her return as a babyface during the Royal Rumble and remained that way for a long time, especially throughout her feud with Charlotte Flair. However, fans haven’t really been into her current character much at all.

Rousey failed to win back the SmackDown Women’s Champion from Liv Morgan at SummerSlam. She then attacked both Morgan and a referee, getting suspended as a result.

She eventually came back and is set for a huge match soon. While speaking on the podcast, Storytime With Dutch Mantell, Dutch Mantell criticized WWE for how they have presented Ronda Rousey.

“See if she’s the Baddest Woman On The Planet? see creative told her to go to the ring smiling, that is not her character, she should be madder to people and sullen. You gotta dislike her from the moment she comes out, if she’s a heel, but if she’s smiling and slapping little kids’ hands well she’s not too bad and then she gets in the ring and she changes, she advances to mean Ronda. Well you need to show that character from entrance and back to the entrance, because if you don’t you’re confusing the fan. Now if she was just mean-looking and unfriendly from the time she walks through that gate until she gets to the ring, that would help a lot.”


Ronda Rousey is set to challenge Liv Morgan for the Smackdown Women’s Championship at WWE Extreme Rules in an extreme rules match. We’ll have to see whether she’ll be able to win the match or not.
