Ronda Rousey was recently interviewed by the New York Post after winning the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships with Shayna Baszler this past week on Raw. She made several comments regarding the state of the Women’s Division within the company.
Below are some quotes from the interview:
On competition in the women’s division:
“Well, the lack of competition is really the problem,” Rousey said. “I mean, we want to be the most active champions out there. I want to be able to defend this title every week and even twice a week on both ‘SmackDown’ and ‘Raw’.
“But with how dismally shallow the women’s division is right now, there’s not enough women around here to keep us busy for a month. And so that’s the biggest challenge that we have is to get this company to actually care and invest into this tag division.”
On the difference between the 2019 and 2022 rosters:
“It was like the entire women’s division just got stripped clean,” Rousey said, referring to the time between when she left WWE in 2019 to become a mother and returned in 2022.
“And now we’re the women that are the women that are left trying to piece together, you know, stories and a division, a tag division with around 10 women or even less on each roster. I mean, we’re trying the best that we can to make chicken s–t into chicken salad, and we made some amazing chicken salad (Monday night).”
On Shayna Baszler:
“No, I think that’s the one thing that really sets us apart from every single person, every single tag team in, in the history of this company is that we’ve, we came here already tested and we came here already closer than anyone’s ever been,” Rousey said.
“We’ve literally fought together, bled together, cried together everything. And so there’s nothing that’s going to tear us apart, especially not a fantasy-land company like this.”
