Ronda Rousey made the jump from UFC to WWE and made her squared-circle debut this year at WrestleMania 34. Since then, Rousey has been on an incredible babyface run, remaining undefeated, and capturing the RAW Women’s Championship at SummerSlam.
With the Women’s Revolution in WWE on a grander stage than ever, all indications point towards a women’s match headlining WrestleMania 35 with Rousey in the main event.
Despite the fact that female Superstars now have their own voice and own PPV (Evolution), WWE seems to always attach a top male Superstar when it comes to “The Rowdy One”.
Former WWE creative member John Piermarini noted the matter in question on the “Wade Keller Pro Wrestling Podcast”.
“They are gonna put her on the shows and they’re always gonna attach a male Superstar to her. At the time, it could have been Roman Reigns. ‘Hey, we’re gonna have Ronda Rousey on Good Morning America.’ ‘Joining us on Good Morning America will be Ronda Rousey and WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.’ I think Vince will always want to do that.”
Ronda Rousey, the reigning RAW Women’s Champion, is hands-down among the most popular global athletes in sports. Her UFC background has seen shatter the box-office and WWE wants to capitalize on its “Golden Girl” even if that means making her the next face of the company and handing her a WrestleMania main event.
At Evolution, Rousey defeated Nikki Bella who happens to give tough competition to the former MMA star when it comes down to mainstream popularity and fame.
Rousey will go 1-on-1 with Becky Lynch at Survivor Series come November 18, 2018, in an epic Champion vs. Champion match.
Whether a heel or babyface, Charlotte Flair is yet another competitor in WWE besides SmackDown Women’s Champion Lynch who can stand toe to toe with Rousey.
