Ronda Rousey Faces Huge Handicap At Elimination Chamber

Ronda Rousey

‘Rowdy’ Ronda Rousey will be at a severe handicap at the Elimination Chamber as she is forced to compete with one arm tied behind her back.

The rivalry between Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey has been brewing ever since the former UFC star returned to WWE at the Royal Rumble.

After making her shock entrance at number 28, Rousey quickly dispatched the opposition, finally eliminating Flair to win the match and earn a shot at a World Championship of her choosing.

While Rousey initially headed over to Monday Night Raw to lock horns with her long-time rival Becky Lynch, it was on SmackDown where she announced her WrestleMania opponent. SmackDown Women’s Champion, Charlotte Flair.

The announcement was met with a scuffle between the two before Rousey locked in her signature arm-bar on WWE official Sonya Deville. The following week, Flair defended her title against Naomi, before Deville arrived to help her attack her rival. Not content to simply watch the beatdown, Rousey ran in to make the save.

It was later announced that Rousey will team with Naomi to take on Deville and Flair at Elimination Chamber. Following SmackDown, however, it emerged that The Most Dangerous Unarmed Woman In The World will be forced to wrestle in the match with only one arm.

The stipulation was sprung on Rousey and Naomi as they signed their contract for the match as a way to counteract the supposed arm injury Sonya Deville is suffering after being locked in Rousey’s deadly armbar.
