Ronda Rousey, the UFC legend who changed the octagon for the quarter round of World Wrestling Entertainment, has won her first WWE title.
Rousey’s rapid rise shows just how important she has become for WWE: before the SummerSlam, she was at least as offensive as the male top stars marketed, afterward sent the league almost twice as much footage of Rousey as of all other fights to the media.
This Sunday at WWE SummerSlam 2018 RAW champion Alexa Bliss was to defend her title against Ronda Rousey.
Natalya‘s comeback after the death of her father Jim Neidhart – whose jacket she was wearing – will be noted before the match – and the presence of the Bella Twins in the audience for this match. There was no doubt that Ronda Rousey did not fear Alexa Bliss in this match. It will taunt a little, especially when Bliss leaves the ring not knowing how to defend themselves, sitting in the ring to let her try to take advantage.
But that will not help, Ronda Rousey will win the match by submission carrying her armbar, which on Alexa Bliss is even more impressive given the flexibility of her arms.
Rousey’s worldwide popularity is worth gold for the promotion of Vince McMahon, she should develop in the medium term to the most commercially successful wrestler of all time.
