• Ronda Rousey Will Go After A New Title In WWE
Ronda Rousey lost the SmackDown Women’s Championship to Charlotte Flair on the December 30th episode of Friday Night SmackDown.
According to Xero News, Triple H decided to book Charlotte to win the SmackDown Women’s Title because most of the top matches for WrestleMania 39 got leaked (where Flair was scheduled to face Bianca Belair for the RAW Women’s Championship), so he wanted to shake things up heading into WrestleMania season:
“Triple H was the one who decided on Charlotte dethroning Rousey on SmackDown as he wanted to shake up the WrestleMania plans as everything had been getting leaked online and WWE had taken notice.”
On her gaming stream, Rousey was asked when she’s planning to get her Title back from Flair.
“The Baddest Woman On The Planet” went on to reveal that she plans to go after the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship now, along with Shayna Baszler:
“I don’t know, guys. I’m kind of tired of Charlotte. I’m tired of that Title. I already did it, you know? I’m thinking of taking over the tag division.”
Dakota Kai & IYO SKY of Bayley’s Damage CTRL faction currently hold the Women’s Tag Team Titles.
Rousey has already won the RAW & SmackDown Women’s Titles, so the Women’s Tag Team Championship is the only Title left for her to win on the main roster.
