WWE is trying all they can in order to get as many people as possible to watch the product now. It seems that Ronda Rousey shooting on professional wrestling as a whole is the way WWE intends to get more people to see the show.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that one of WWE’s goals with Ronda Rousey’s kayfabe-killing promo was to ignite a fire in pro wrestling fans. That certainly has been achieved, but WWE apparently has another goal in mind on the road to Wrestlemania.
“I think that’s one goal. I think the bigger goal is to get people outside of wrestling talking about Ronda Rousey is in the main event of WrestleMania and we’re not sure what’s happening and it’s Ronda Rousey who was a pretty big public figure and get ESPN talking about it and things like that.”
It was also noted that the intention isn’t to get “David Arquette publicity,” but get more attention in a good way. WWE is pulling out all the stops for the public to pay attention to the company in time for Wrestlemania since Ronda Rousey might be closing out the show.
We will have to wait and see what happens in the end.
