They have options. WWE’s women’s division has come a very long way over the years and there is a good reason to believe that things could continue to improve. A lot of this is due tot he amount of talent that the division has, but things are in a bit of a bad spot at the moment. The division is down a few names, and that could create some issues for one of the titles in the near future.
Earlier this week, Naomi and Sasha Banks walked out on WWE over issues with their creative directions. The original plans called for Banks to move on to challenge SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at Hell In A Cell, but now Rousey will be needing a new challenger. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the most likely choices are Shayna Baszler and Natalya, as it is believed that the two could give Rousey her best match. Rousey and Baszler are also close friends and it would be a dream match for the two of them.
Opinion: Natalya was the first name that came to mind, as she is good for a spot like this, though I’m not sure if the level of interest would be there from the audience. Baszler vs. Rousey would certainly be a fresh match, but it would also offer a bit of a different dynamic as Rousey’s MMA strengths would be negated. Either sound fairly promising, but Baszler sounds more interesting.
Who do you think will challenge Rousey? Who do you want to? Let us know in the comments below.
