Ronda Rousey recently made a suggestion that WWE’s Women’s Championships should be renamed, however, her comments are being met with backlash from WWE Hall of Famer Alundra Blayze.
Currently the WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion, Ronda Rousey spoke about she would prefer to see ‘women’ taken out of her championship’s name because it would be a further step in the Women’s Revolution, even pitching the idea to officials within WWE. They ultimately declined the idea, however, the company and Rousey are in agreement that she wouldn’t say the word on TV.
Taking part in an interview with “The A2theK Wrestling Show,” Alundra Blayze spoke about what Rousey suggested, saying that she was confused with the former UFC champion.
“Ronda Rousey came out saying ‘I’m taking the name Women’s out of the title.’ I’m like, ‘what the f**k for?’ I mean so we just call it ‘The Title’? Intercontinental is for men. I get what she’s saying, right? But then if we just have ‘SmackDown,’ does that mean then it’s for men and women? Is it an intergender now? I’m confused but I understand what she’s trying to say.”
Ronda Rousey is set to take on Shotzi at WWE’s upcoming Survivor Series Premium Live Event on Saturday, November 26, 2022 for the WWE Women’s Smackdown Championship. The PLE airs live on Peacock at 8:00 PM ET.
