She doesn’t sound pleased. Wrestling is a lot of things, but at the end of the day, it is not a secret that the match results are planned in advance. The wrestlers are real athletes and are putting in the effort whenever they are in the ring. There are a handful of stars who can legitimately take down just about anyone they care to, and now one of them does not seem happy with a fellow star.

Last week on SmackDown, Raquel Rodriguez interrupted the Shayna Baszler vs. Shotzi match, resulting in Baszler getting distracted and rolled up for the pin. This came after Baszler’s friend, Ronda Rousey, interfered in the match multiple times. Rousey and Baszler were interviewed later in the night on SmackDown LowDown, with Rousey saying that Rodriguez disrespected herself and Baszler. Rousey went on to say that for interfering in their business, she would have to pay. Rousey is currently scheduled to defend her SmackDown Women’s Title against Shotzi at Survivor Series.
The champ isn’t happy. Check out her interview (from 1:13 – 1:27) and the match that set her off:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that makes sense as WWE seems to be setting things up for the future beyond Survivor Series. Rousey and Rodriguez had a heck of a match earlier this year and it would be great to see what the two of them could do on a bigger stage. Rodriguez could get quite a bit out of another showdown with Rousey, which might even see the title change hands, assuming Shotzi doesn’t take it first.
What do you think of Rousey’s statements? How would another Rousey vs. Rodriguez match go? Let us know in the comments below.
