Reason WWE nixed Ronda Rousey’s singles match during recent Live Event

Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey was all set to make her singles debut during a recent Live Event from Geneva where she was announced to be facing Raw Star Mickie James.

However, WWE nixed this singles match at the last moment and the former UFC Star ended up competing in a 6 Women Tag match at the show instead.

This change had started all kinds of rumors including the speculation that Ronda may have injured herself while training and couldn’t work a longer match.

Although during the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer killed all these rumors and stated that the reason why this match was nixed was simply because Officials thought that Rousey was not ready for a one on one bout.

During the episode, Meltzer also made comments about Ronda Rousey’s attitude backstage following her massive debut at WrestleMania which you can read here.

Ronda Rousey is now set to make her singles debut at the upcoming Money In The Bank PPV against Nia Jax on June 17th.

    Better to play to her strengths, than have her go out there and make the company look bad.

    I wonder when they’ll realize that they are no longer a ppv company thanks to the network and that their core audience doesn’t really care about stuff like this.

    She is the pet project of HHH and Stephanie, as well as the first major signing they’ve had without Vince being involved. They’ll do everything in their power to protect her. Don’t be surprised if she somehow gets attacked before the match because she’s nowhere near ready to be used in a situation where she’ll get exposed.

    They did not think she was ready for a singles match against an experienced wrestler at a house show, but think she is ready for a singles title match against a wrestler nearly as green as her at a PPV … yeah, makes lots of sense.

    She’s being spoon fed and that’s all there is to it.
