When Ronda Rousey returned at the 2022 Royal Rumble many fans were ecstatic and some fans were not. To this day the WWE Universe has yet to embrace Rousey as one of their own.
At WrestleMania 38 on Saturday Charlotte Flair defeated Ronda Rousey to retain the RAW Women’s Championship.
WWE officials made the call to have Ronda Rousey loose at WrestleMania due to negative fan reaction that she has been receiving of late. This year’s WrestleMania was all about a feel good show with nostalgia and WWE did not want to risk a unhappy crowd at the biggest show of the year.
WWE is going back to the drawing board with Ronda Rousey and Vince McMahon and WWE head producers are discussing plans to rehabilitate Ronda Rousey’s character.
One of the top discussed ideas is for a Heel Ronda Rousey character. WWE officials feel like her character is not getting over with the audience and the WWE Universe is not accepting her.
WWE feels a heel turn would do wonders for Ronda Rousey and they compare her situation to Roman as he is living proof that heel turns do work in making a character successful.
WWE is in advanced stages of this planning and with WrestleMania 38 on the books now is the time for fresh starts.
