Ronda Rousey has seemingly taken a huge swipe at WWE creative when speaking out about a recently storyline.
Ronda Rousey slams ‘octogenarians’
Rousey endured a turbulent 2022 after her return to the company as a surprise entrant in the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble match. The former UFC star would win the Rumble match and go on to challenge Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 38. Whilst she was unsuccessful in that effort, she would go on to defeat Flair for the title a month later.
Women’s Money In The Bank ladder match victor Liv Morgan would cash in her title opportunity on the same night that she won it, defeating Rousey to lift the SmackDown Women’s Championship after the Champion had gone through a gruelling title defence against Natalya.
The pair would feud over the ensuing three months, with Morgan retaining the title in controversial fashion at SummerSlam on July 30th after Rousey had appeared to force her opponent to submit. The referee did not see the tap and instead counted the challenger’s shoulders to the mat. A furious Ronda Rousey would attack both Liv Morgan and the referee after the bout.
Rousey would regain the title at Extreme Rules on October 8th but recent comments suggest that she was less than happy with how WWE creative had booked the feud.
Whilst promoting the latest episode of the popular ‘Ronda On The Road’ YouTube series, Rousey took to Instagram and appeared to take aim at the creative arm of WWE and suggested more time and thought should have been given to the storyline:
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…
It is unknown at this stage if the rant is directed at Vince McMahon, who headed up WWE creative at the time, but reports suggest that Ronda Rousey is now happy with her current position on the card although may be looking to take time away from the company soon.
