Ronda Rousey thinks that WWE should change the names of their women’s titles.
As the Smackdown Women’s Champion, Ronda Rousey isn’t shy about voicing her opinion. Rousey regained the Smackdown Women’s Title from Liv Morgan at WWE Extreme Rules on October 8th. It’s the second time that Rousey has won the Smackdown Women’s Title in 2022 because she also beat Charlotte Flair to win it at WrestleMania Backlash in May.
While speaking on Ronda on the Road on her own YouTube channel, Rousey said she wanted to make a change to the women’s titles in WWE.
“I don’t want to say ‘women’ in title anymore. And I think they are kind of resistant to taking it out. So then I was like, ‘Can I just not have to say it?’ So then that’s kind of where it’s at.”
This video was from when Vince McMahon was running the WWE creative team. Now that Triple H is in that role, perhaps things could change.
This isn’t the first time that Rousey has voiced her displeasure about the names of the women’s titles in WWE. In March 2022 on Smackdown prior to her WrestleMania 38 match against then-champion Charlotte Flair, Rousey spoke on the air about removing the “women’s” part of the title.
“You can call me your new Women’s SmackDown Champion. SmackDown Women’s Champion? Why do we even say ‘women’ in it anyway? You can call me the SmackDown Champion!”
On Smackdown after winning the title after WrestleMania Backlash, Rousey said: “I’ve got the SmackDown Championship Title now.”
There is no indication that WWE wants to change the names of their titles at this time.
