Ronda Rousey caused a lot of attention for WWE when she made her return to the company after an “impregnation vacation.” That being said, her return was not welcomed across the board.

It seems Dutch Mantell is one person who might not 100% love Ronda Rousey’s presence on the WWE roster. He apparently wants to give her an open-handed slap to the face, Slap Fight style.

Ronda Rousey returned to the company at the Royal Rumble in January 2022. She has since been an active competitor on SmackDown.

Rousey also garnered a bit of controversy when she dragged the WWE certain members of the creative team as “a bunch of octogenarians.” This was concerning how her story with Liv Morgan turned out.


Imagine what our @yaonlylivvonce feud could have been if we weren’t hamstrung by a bunch of octogenarians who still think they know how to be hip while putting a total of 5 minutes of thought a week into each women’s storyline…

While speaking on his Story Time with Dutch Mantell podcast, the wrestling veteran addressed Ronda Rousey’s comments. It seems that Zeb Colter would like to slap the Baddest Woman on the Planet over those comments.

“I would like to have Ronda standing right in front of me right now, and I’d open-hand slap her. [Any reason?] She came out earlier in the week and says that WWE with those octogenarians like the 80-year-old guys, they don’t know what it’s like to be hip and this, that, the other, and I’m thinking, ‘shut up Ronda!’ You can’t do it on your own, so listen to somebody. And the octogenarians, I think she was talking about Vince maybe, I don’t know. There’s nobody there that’s 80, close to 80 except Vince,” 

Ronda Rousey’s booking in WWE was stifled by an injury, but she still competed at the showcase of the immortals this year. Rousey was paired up with Shayna Baszler in a four-way women’s tag team match, which they won. Still, Rousey worked very light in the match due to her physical limitations at the moment.

We’ll have to see what’s next for Ronda Rousey, especially with Vince McMahon running the operation once again. For more on this story, and everything else going on in the pro wrestling world, stay tuned with us at Ringside News.
