SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey has named an interesting choice as her dream opponent as she says it’d be “fun” to take on Paige.
‘Rowdy’ Ronda Rousey has lit up WWE since returning to the company at the 2022 Royal Rumble, winning the women’s over-the-top-rope match to guarantee herself the main event at WrestleMania 38. Rousey, however, proved unsuccessful on The Grandest Stage Of Them All as The Queen emerged victorious.
Rousey was able to finally defeat Flair for the championship at WrestleMania Backlash in an I Quit match but her status for Hell In A Cell in June could be up in the air following Sasha Banks and Naomi walking out of Raw and being suspended by WWE. Reports had suggested that one of Naomi or Banks would challenge Rousey at that event.
Rousey was speaking live on Facebook when she was asked who her dream match would be against and responded:
“I wish I could wrestle Paige. That’d be fun.”
Former Divas Champion Paige has not competed in a WWE ring since December 2017 when she suffered a serious neck injury during a match on a live event. Since then, the English star has remained part of WWE, most famously in her role as SmackDown General Manager.
WWE recently updated Paige’s status with the company, suggesting a return to the ring could still be possible.
