Ronda Rousey is undoubtedly one of the most well-known names to make her way from the world of combat sports to professional wrestling. She continues to hone her craft and is now more comfortable in her current role as well.
Since losing the Smackdown Women’s Championship to Liv Morgan, Ronda Rousey was engaged in a bitter feud with Morgan. Fans also became tired of Liv Morgan by that time.
At WWE Extreme Rules, Ronda Rousey challenged Liv Morgan for the SmackDown Women’s Championship in an Extreme Rules match. When all was said and done, Rousey defeated Morgan to become the new champion.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE made a major decision regarding Ronda Rousey as they officially turned her heel.
The show only had two title matches, both women’s singles titles, with one title change as Ronda Rousey won the Smackdown women’s title from Liv Morgan. The idea is that this was to complete the long-planned Rousey heel turn. Whether this leads to a match with now-face Becky Lynch, which was the plan for the 2023 WrestleMania 18 months ago, will become obvious soon.
We will have to wait and see just how Ronda Rousey is booked as the Smackdown Women’s Champion. Perhaps she will have a proper reign this time around.
