At this past Sunday’s Royal Rumble, history was made with the first ever Women’s’ Royal Rumble match. The female superstars and legends of the WWE put on one hell of a performance in the main event of the pay-per-view; but, at the end of the night, the “Empress of Tomorrow” Asuka stood tall as the winner.
As Asuka stood in the ring, the RAW and Smackdown Live Women’s Champions Alexa Bliss and Charlotte Flair, respectively, joined her. Before we could get Asuka’s decision on who she wanted to face at WrestleMania, Ronda Rousey appeared!
The crowd went crazy. Announcers and fans alike were in awe that the former UFC champion was in a WWE ring. Ronda’s arrival may have overshadowed Asuka’s historic win, but that can be debated another day.
Now that Rousey has arrived, how do Vince, and company book her? Do they take the same approach as they did with the “Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar? Or, do they make a more traditional approach, and allow her to lose some matches before WrestleMania?
In my opinion, they should make her an unstoppable monster heel. She has very limited professional wrestling experience, but with the talent of Charlotte, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, and the other talented women WWE has on their roster, they could help to cover her flaws.
The WWE should allow her to armbar and choke out all of the female superstars. Let Ronda dominate one of the brands. Personally, they should move Asuka to Smackdown Live to dominate and be their Women’s champion while Rousey reigns over RAW’s Womens division.
This could set up a potential dream match between Ronda Rousey and Asuka down the road – undefeated champion vs. undefeated champion. It could headline WrestleMania or SummerSlam.
The possibilities are endless now that the “Rowdy” one has made her presence felt in the WWE’s Women’s Division. If she is booked right, Ronda Rousey will continue to be a megastar, drawing more eyes to the WWE.
This could be one of Hunter’s greatest signings ever, just as long as Rousey is booked right and protected properly until she is fully acclimated to the professional wrestling business. Welcome, Rowdy Ronda Rousey!
