Ronda Rousey made her return during the 2022 Royal Rumble event after a nearly three-year absence from the company. While Rousey won the Smackdown Women’s Championship twice since her return, she failed to get any desired reactions from the fans. Now it appears an ex-WWE writer has claimed fans were done with her because she didn’t care about them.
During the Money In The Bank Premium Live Event, Shayna Baszler attacked Ronda Rousey in the final moments of the match, leading to Raquel and Morgan capitalising to win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles back.
They finally squared off against each other at the WWE SummerSlam Premium Live Event in an MMA Rules match. Baslzer would win the match after she put Ronda Rousey in the sleeper hold, making Rousey tap out.
While speaking on the Wrestling with Freddie podcast, former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. criticized Ronda Rousey’s apathy towards fans, claiming that fans were done with her for that reason.
“The fans are done with Ronda Rousey. They’re done with her. They know she doesn’t care or at least she didn’t. So this match just, it was what it was and then it was over.”
Ronda Rousey’s SummerSlam match was her ‘farewell for now’ from WWE. Despite that, she is still listed on the internal WWE roster. We will have to wait and see when she will return to WWE television, as it still might be a while before that can happen.
