In the world of professional wrestling, there is nothing quite like an Extreme Rules match. And when Ronda Rousey challenged Liv Morgan for the SmackDown Women’s Championship in one such match, fans were eagerly anticipating a brutal showdown. The match itself was intense, featuring a range of weapons such as steel chairs, a bat, and a table. However, according to reports from Wrestling Observer Radio, both Rousey and Morgan had bigger plans for their bout.
The two women wanted to incorporate more extreme elements typically seen in men’s hardcore matches, such as thumbtacks. But unfortunately, their request was ultimately rejected by the WWE. This left Rousey feeling frustrated with the limitations placed on their match and the lack of investment in women’s storylines.
Taking to Instagram, Rousey expressed her disappointment with the “octogenarians” of WWE for not putting more effort into their feud. Her comments came as a surprise to many, especially considering that Extreme Rules had taken place several months prior. Nevertheless, Rousey made it clear that she felt the match could have been much more exciting had they been allowed to push the boundaries of what was typically seen in women’s matches.
Liv Morgan has also expressed her desire to compete in more violent matches such as Hell in a Cell bouts, Steel Cage matches, and Street Fights. Morgan’s willingness to push the envelope and embrace the hardcore style of wrestling is a reflection of the changing landscape of women’s wrestling in recent years. Women are no longer confined to traditional roles and are now being given the opportunity to showcase their skills in a variety of match types.
This weekend at WrestleMania 39, Rousey and Morgan will have the opportunity to face off once again, but this time in a four-way women’s showcase tag team match. Rousey will be partnering up with Shayna Baszler, while Morgan will be teaming up with Raquel Rodriguez. As the world of women’s wrestling continues to evolve, it remains to be seen if WWE will eventually let women’s matches become more hardcore. One thing is for sure, though – the demand for it is certainly there, and fans are eagerly waiting to see what comes next.
