Now with gold around her waist once again, Ronda Rousey has hit out at the lack of depth in the women’s tag team division in WWE.
On the 29th May 2023 edition of Monday Night Raw, a four-way match was held for the vacant WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships, after Raquel Gonzalez and Liv Morgan were forced to relinquish them due to an injury to Morgan.
It was the combination of Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler who came out victorious, and Rousey has been quick to discuss how little competition they’re going to face for the titles.
In a discussion with the New York Post, Ronda Rousey noted that there isn’t enough competition to keep them busy for a month.
Well, the lack of competition is really the problem. I mean, we want to be the most active champions out there. I want to be able to defend this title every week and even twice a week on both ‘SmackDown’ and ‘Raw’. But with how dismally shallow the women’s division is right now, there’s not enough women around here to keep us busy for a month. So that’s the biggest challenge that we have is to get this company to actually care and invest into this tag division.
Continuing on, Rousey analyzed the division between when she took time away in 2019 and now, where there were many releases during the pandemic.
It was like the entire women’s division just got stripped clean. Now we’re the women that are the women that are left trying to piece together, you know, stories and a division, a tag division with around 10 women or even less on each roster. I mean, we’re trying the best that we can to make chicken shit into chicken salad, and we made some amazing chicken salad (Monday night).
Ronda Rousey also hyped up the credentials of the team, and how they have grown up together in combat sports.
I think that’s the one thing that really sets us apart from every single person, every single tag team in, in the history of this company is that we’ve, we came here already tested and we came here already closer than anyone’s ever been. We’ve literally fought together, bled together, cried together everything. So there’s nothing that’s going to tear us apart, especially not a fantasy-land company like this.
It seems like it’s going to be a busy period for Rousey, as she is also set to appear on a reality television series starting next month.
