When I found out about Rhonda Rousey going to WWE I didn't like it. I'm not a fan. However, I watched her segment at the end of the women's royal rumble match, and it certainly raised my intrigue. To Rousey's credit she looked genuinely excited and wasn't there just to cash a check.
Rousey's meteoric UFC rise ended after two brutal knockouts to Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes.
It would be great for Rousey to remain in WWE. It would be good for the former UFC champ to get her confidence back. Feel good about herself again. With the training she would get I believe she would be a superstar in wrestling.
She isn't going back to UFC at least not anytime soon. Similar to the way Brock did.
Two bad knockouts and the movie roles dry up quick. It's a sad truth, but that's Hollywood. Right now I'm fascinated by her. We'll see. I'm reserving my right to a mulligan because women's wrestling has let me down before.
As for the women's rumble match itself I thought it was good even though everyone knew Asuka was going to win. Oh well. She'll get the belt at Mania. I like any match with her in it. She is proof that you can be must see TV without saying a word. Incredible charisma and ring skill.
The triple threat match with Brock Lesnar, Braun Stroman, and 500 year old Kane was better than expected. Not because of Kane who is gassed after every minute of action. I like the chemistry between Brock and Braun. They will collide at Mania for the belt I hope, I hope, I hope. This is a good way for Brock to ride off into the sunset and put Braun completely over. Then they'll give the belt to Reigns a month later. Sorry, sorry, sorry, I couldn't help myself.
