It wasn’t the plan. Wrestling is quite the difficult task, with all kinds of things that need to go right, most of which can be completely wiped out if something goes wrong. Anything could go wrong at the drop of a hat and more often than not, that is what will get the majority of the attention. That was the case recently and now we know a bit more about what went wrong.

Last month at Survivor Series, Ronda Rousey successfully defended the SmackDown Women’s Title against Shotzi. During the match, Shotzi attempted a springboard tornado DDT onto the apron, but Rousey’s head did not make contact as Shotzi fell to the floor. Rousey addressed the incident during a recent gaming live stream, saying she had never done that kind of a spot before. Coming into the match, she had been told to protect Shotzi at all costs and became so focused on that aspect that she did not take the DDT as she was supposed to. Rousey also said that she requested to do the spot in the first place.

There were good parts otherwise. Check out the Shotzi vs. Rousey match:

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that is going to happen at times, but at the end of the day, the spot looked rather terrible. There is only so much you can do when the move doesn’t work, which might mean it’s time to drop it from the arsenal. Shotzi is talented at what she does, but if the move winds up looking like that, it might be doing a bit more harm than good.

What did you think of the move? What is next for the two of them? Let us know in the comments below.
