Details emerge behind Ronda Rousey’s promo on RAW

RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey laid into the Bella Twins with a scathing promo on RAW. The promo, which included several jabs to Nikki Bella was well received by the WWE Universe.

With the majority of the promos and segments being controlled by the creative team backstage, Bryan Alvarez claims in the latest edition of Wrestling Newsletter Observer that Rousey wrote the entire promo herself. While Meltzer noted that the promo was basically Rousey speaking out about how she feels about women who get on by their looks.

On Wrestling Observer Live, Alvarez said:

“That Ronda Rousey promo on Monday, that I thought was excellent with the exception of a few lines — she wrote the entire thing herself. She did not have a writer. She wrote that. The line about the Bellas name being a stain on society, she wrote that. That’s how she talks.

 

 

 


  • what?

    I thought she did good. If any of you can do any better let’s hear it

  • Dirt McGirt

    Say what you want, the girl’s were hos.

    The point is the word sexiest and sexist are pretty much the opposite of each other which made your comment humourous.
    I am sorry you have no sense of humour.

  • Brian

    Nikki was the champion already, so extending her reign until she broke AJ’s record was easier than starting anew with someone else.

    As for them being ‘open for business’ like they’re paid hookers is an insult to them and everyone else.

  • Dirt McGirt

    I’m not denying it wasn’t to erase AJ Lee, but they could have used any woman for that and they chose Nikki. As for them sleeping around, I’m not holding them to some sort of double standard, men shouldn’t be doing it either. When I use the term “escorted” I’m saying that in addition to being shown backstage with them, you gotta know they were open for business with some of those guys after the cameras stopped rolling.

    I agree with dirt, first of all I’m pretty sure her promo was shared with Nikki before they got up there so that there is no random offense she did not expect. Secondly, I think that was an awesome Jab, it made things realistic, and she added what millions of people already think. In the script, Ronda Rousey is now an enemy of Nikki, and an enemy of the diva era, so it would make sense for her to jab at Nikki with the same comments that everyone does against the Bellas

    This is true, a lot of people don’t realize how heavy the writers throw themselves in the mix

    This deserves an eye roll. Everyone has their opinion and it’s fun to go back and forth with different opinions. But you’re only contribution is to point out a typo. If you read it obviously I meant sexist…. I use Google Speech and Google through and sexiest. Now that we are off the topic let’s get back on. What are your thoughts? Are you an anti Ronda Rousey? Do you think she’s too ugly to make it in the world so she has to fight? Do you think her promo was awesome or lame?

    I wouldn’t say UFC built Rhonda’s name for her. She won all those fights. UFC doesnt have scripted outcomes. She was the female face of that organization for years and their first signed female fighter which wasnt something people considered when UFC really took off.

  • CC

    It’s the sexiest thing you have seen? That is a bit creepy that you find his comment sexy.

  • Brian

    Horse hockey. The only reason Nikki’s reign was as long as it was, was to erase AJ Lee’s record. They wanted a dig at CM Punk, as soon as Nikki broke the record, she dropped the title to Charlotte.

    As for the amount of men, who cares? It’s not as if there isn’t male wrestlers who’ve had multiple partners in the wrestling business either.

    Most of the women wrestlers at one time or another have had roles that don’t include wrestling. And that includes Hall of Fame ones, like Trish Stratus and Lita. You do what the writers want you to do.

  • Dirt McGirt

    That’s what made it so great. The only reason Nikki was champ so long was because she was with Cena. And don’t forget all those years that the Bella’s “escorted” the Raw guest host. Both those girls are well into double digit with men they’ve been with since they started with WWE.

  • Brian

    The only part I found tacky was the reference to the recent break-up of Nikki & John Cena. Didn’t think that was necessary.

  • Rinn13

    While I agree that women who get by on their looks are typically shallow and self-involved creatures, it’s pretty ironic, coming from Rousey. She “gets by” in WWE on the name UFC built for her. If she had never been in UFC, chances are: 1. She never would have gotten into pro wrestling, and 2. If she had, she’d be on the indy level, and likely not in WWE. Certainly not jetting right up to the main roster, skipping NXT, etc.

    I agree that the Bellas are a good example of what’s wrong with a lot of WWE’s “Women’s Wrestling”. But frankly, so is Ronda.

  • Rinn13

    “She’s beautiful to herself”? lol

    I’m sorry, but there is nothing more nonsensical and vain than “I’m beautiful to myself”. Beauty is subjective. There is no such thing, at all, as objective beauty. Hence it being in the “eye of the beholder”. Someone ELSE finding you beautiful, IE human attraction, is a thing. Finding yourself to be beautiful? Is vanity, and self-absorption.

  • blkwolf13

    This was the dumbest sexiest thing I’ve ever seen, But if you’re a woman this is the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen. Ronda Rousey by the way is beautiful too many people but the best part is she’s beautiful to herself. Get it together

  • oppa

    The only women who complain about women getting by on their looks are women who can’t get by on their looks.
