Ronda Rousey Names Favourite Match Since WWE Return

Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey has opened up about her favourite match in WWE since returning to the company in January.

Following WrestleMania 35 in April 2019, Ronda Rousey took an extended break from WWE after expressing a desire to start a family. While away from the ring the star gave birth to her first child, La’akea Makalapuaokalanipō Browne in September 2021.

Incredibly the former Raw Women’s Champion was back in action in just four months, making a triumphant return in the women’s 2022 Royal Rumble Match. Rousey entered at number 28 before finally eliminating Charlotte Flair to earn the win.

The following months were something of a rollercoaster for the former UFC star as she received a mixed reaction from crowds, before losing to Flair at WrestleMania 38. However, Rousey bounced back and defeated Flair at WrestleMania Backlash in an “I Quit” Match to win the SmackDown Women’s Title.

Speaking during a recent gaming stream, Rousey revealed that the match where she defeated The Queen was her favourite since returning to the ring in January.

“Honestly, I think it was the ‘I Quit’ match with Charlotte, because I got to bust out the double kendo sticks and act like I was a Jedi for two seconds,” Rousey said. “I can’t believe they let me do that. That was 100% my idea.”

On the September 9th edition of Friday Night SmackDown, Rousey once again became the number one contender for Liv Morgan’s SmackDown Women’s Title. Morgan has held the championship since defeating Rousey at Money In The Bank. In a rematch at SummerSlam, Morgan again emerged victorious in controversial fashion which saw Rousey attack the referee after the match.

This led to the star being suspended and fined in storyline before being reinstated on September 2nd. However, after being insulted by Adam Peace as he lifted her suspension she attacked him. On the most recent episode of the blue brand it was announced that Rousey had been “disciplined internally” for the incident.
