SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey has seemingly hit out at WWE over what she perceives as a lack of storylines for the company’s female stars.
Ronda Rousey is the top star of WWE’s women’s division as SmackDown Women’s Champion. The Baddest Woman on the Planet reclaimed that title from Liv Morgan at Extreme Rules, making her opponent pass out with a table-assisted triangle choke.
“There’s Just Not Enough Women” – Ronda Rousey
Speaking on her own YouTube channel, Ronda Rousey has said that there are not enough storylines outside of the title scene for the company’s women and even says there are not enough women competing in WWE:
“One thing that’s really missing is none of the women have storylines aside from titles, like you watch pay per views and there’s several men’s matches that aren’t for titles and the women don’t really get any non-title storylines which I feel like would really add to the depth of people getting to know everyone’s different character before they got into the title picture.”
“I mean there’s just not enough women on either of the rosters. I mean, you could argue that there’s not enough airtime for all you know, the men and women’s rosters combined. So it’s like do you reduce the roster and give everyone more airtime? Or do you add to the roster and give it more depth.”
Ronda Rousey came to the world of professional wrestling after becoming one of the biggest stars in the history of UFC. Her fights headlined sell-out cards as she made short work of opponent after opponent as UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion.
Her progress came to a screeching halt when she lost her title to Holly Holm, and in 2016 she lost only the second fight of her career – and her last UFC fight – to Amanda Nunes.
