Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler lost the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles at Money in the Bank, a move that shocked a lot of people. Baszler turned on Rousey, which added to the moment, and they had quite a segment on RAW to follow up on that booking decision.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed how fans turned on Ronda Rousey, despite the fact that she was the victim at Money in the Bank. This sets up an interesting dynamic for their SummerSlam feud.
So, Shayna does a total heel turn on the pay-per-view, but Ronda comes out as the total heel face and as the heel. Shayna attacked her from behind for no reason, but [fans turned on Rousey] and that’s ended up happening.
Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler cut a very interesting promo on RAW this week, one where the Baddest Woman on the Planet was seen as the heel. Fans were quick to boo Rousey as well, and they had a few reasons for that reaction.
Shayna Baszler made a lot of points during her promo on RAW, but the fact is that Ronda Rousey is still owed credit for a lot of attention that Baszler received in the first place. Only time will tell how this feud ends, but Ronda Rousey’s “hard out” date for her WWE contract adds an interesting layer to this whole thing.
