Back in 2019, in the build-up to WrestleMania’s main event, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, and Ronda Rousey were all arrested on Monday Night Raw.
This was for the purposes of a storyline and helped with the build towards the first-ever female WrestleMania main event, but it appears that it could have been seen as a real-life incident according to a list compiled by Michael Caputo, who is the assistant secretary of public affairs for the Department of Health & Human Services.
The recent idea was to compile a list of celebrities who would help President Donald Trump to put out messages regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
It’s reported that at least 247 celebrities have been vetted and Ronda Rousey’s inclusion on the list was “pending answer.”
According to WrestlingInc, “Her demographic was listed as “General Public. Women. Conservatives.” The interesting part is what was listed under the “Additional Notes” field for the former RAW Women’s Champion. That field for Rousey notes, “Publicly supported Democratic Party candidate Bernie Sanders for 2016 election. Anti-feminist views at times. Arrested during WWE event in 2019.”
It’s interesting that a worked angle was included in a legal document even though WWE has become well-known for arrest angles over the years.
