Ronda Rousey had a tremendous run to the top of WWE during her first stint with the company, but she didn’t really stay long. Since her return earlier this year, Rousey has already seen success. However, fans have simply rejected everything she has done, including a huge botch at Survivor Series. Rousey has now revealed that the botch happened for a good reason.
Rousey also defended her title against Shotzi Blackheart at WWE Survivor Series, in a match that was largely panned for being a botchfest. This included a botch where she seemingly blocked a DDT onto the apron, which led Shotzi to fall to the floor.
While speaking during a recent gaming stream Rousey talked about the aforementioned match. Rousey revealed that she botched the DDT as she was trying to keep Shotzi safe.
”You ever wake up from a deep sleep and think of a cringe moment in your life? And you lay awake in bed?
Well I had one of those this morning. I woke up at 6:30 this morning and I was like, oh God. That DDT on the apron [Rousey laughed]. So let me explain what happened. I actually pitched that spot because I loved that she [Shotzi] does that but we couldn’t practice it in my ring because the ropes were too loose, and then we couldn’t practice it when we got to the arena because there was these big cages.
So everybody was like — I’ve taken DDTs before but I’ve never helped anybody over the floor so they were like, ‘Okay, you gotta have your hand here on her leg, another hand on her hip and you’re gonna guide her over’ and everyone was so focused on, ‘Gotta guide her over. Guide her to the floor’ that it was literally all that was on my mind when it happened and so when I was like, guide her and when she was down, I was like, oh f*ck. Just go to where you’re supposed to go.
So, yeah, I fcked it up because I was so concerned with keeping somebody safe and a lot of times when you see me do something the first time, it’s the first time I ever did it. It’s the first time I ever did it, I was really concerned with keeping Shotzi safe and I made it look bad and you know what? I’m sorry, okay. Fcking shoot me. Apparently, I deserve to be fired or burned.
It reminds me of Monty Python and the Holy Grail when they were like, ‘Burn her!’… There weren’t calls to fire anybody when Madcap Moss and Big E were spiked on their heads and they were like, burn her anyway! I’m so sorry that I was so concerned with keeping someone safe that I made the bump look bad.
#FireRondaRousey also started trending after the match. Things don’t seem to be going well for Rousey right now, so it remains to be seen whether WWE will do something about it or not.
