Ronda Rousey is arguably the biggest name to transition from the world of combat sports to professional wrestling. She adjusted to WWE’s method of pro wrestling in record time. She has also been advised to wrestle less frequently in WWE.
At WrestleMania Backlash, Ronda Rousey challenged Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women’s Championship in an ‘I Quit’ match. After a hard-fought bout, Rousey came out on top and became the new Smackdown Women’s Champion.
While speaking on Jim Cornette’s Drive Thru, Jim Cornette talked about a potential problem Ronda Rousey might face due to a lack of proper opponents. He advised Rousey to wrestle less frequently in WWE.
“Well, that will be interesting because you generally have a problem now in that most people still know that Ronda is legitimate. So most of the girls on the roster, I mean let’s face it, you would think, ‘Okay, she should be able to take girl X or girl Y apart in 30 seconds.’ At the top, most of the really good female talent are – maybe Ronda vs. Becky because Becky is a great heel, but Bianca’s a babyface, she wouldn’t want to do that.”
I don’t know any match you could build in the next three months with Ronda and anybody that would mean as much as some type of big score-settler when Charlotte comes back from her broken arm, so she’s got to stay babyface for so long. Maybe Ronda just doesn’t wrestle a lot and that probably wouldn’t hurt things either.”
Ronda Rousey also doesn’t think Charlotte Flair is special. We will have to wait and see how Rousey will be booked as the Smackdown Women’s Champion. Fans are certainly excited to see how she will progress in the coming weeks.
