Fire Ronda Rousey

Although Survivor Series WarGames was a huge success, there was however one match that fans disliked. The match between Ronda Rousey and Shotzi Blackheart for the SmackDown Women’s Championship turned out to be a fiasco. Rousey signed with WWE in 2017. Though her arrival in the promotion was initially met with a lot of pop, her stiff style of wrestling made her fan’s least favorite wrestler in the women’s division. 

The Rowdy One is now facing the wrath of fans following her match that was full of botched spots. Rousey controlled most of the match, however, there were moments in the match that was so awkward that it did not make sense.

At one point, Shotzi tried to pull off a DDT on Ronda Rousey on the apron but, Rousey remained stiff and did not allow for the move to look very potent. 

#FireRondaRousey trends on Twitter following Ronda Rousey’s match at Survivor Series WarGames

Ronda Rousey’s performance at Survivor Series apparently left a lot to be desired as fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment over it. #FireRondaRousey is now trending like wildfire and while some fans are afraid for Ronda, others believe she has it coming. Here are some responses from the fans. 

Was Ronda Rousey a flash in the pan in UFC?

Without a doubt, at first, Ronda Rousey ruled the roost in the women’s division in UFC. The former UFC Champion seemed invincible every time she finished off her opponents in seconds in the octagon. Rousey was the front-runner in UFC for a long time after becoming the first-ever woman to hold the UFC title.

Her winning streak was broken when she was knocked out by Holly Helms with a head kick. Rousey took a year away to cope with the loss and eventually returned to suffer the same fate again against Amanda Nunes at UFC 207. That was the last time fans saw Rousey in the octagon as she would leave MMA for pro wrestling. 

During an interview with MMA hour, former UFC Bantamweight Champion Julianna Pena spoke about the downfall of the UFC Hall of Famer Ronda Rousey.

According to Pena, as dominant as Ronda was during the start of her career, she didn’t quite bounce back from her last two losses in UFC. Pena further impugned Rousey’s legitimacy given that she turned to pro wrestling instead of continuing her UFC career. 

“She got knocked out twice and never came back, and so how legit is she? She had to go to professional wrestling and I get that, it’s great but as a fighter and somebody who’s competitive, I know that deep down it probably truly bothers her that she ran way off two knockout losses and never came back to make her name good.” Said Pena.
