Ronda Rousey Reveals Scrapped Finish For WWE Extreme Rules Match

The ending would have been a lot more extreme, if Ronda Rousey had her way...

New WWE SmackDown Women's Champion Ronda Rousey has revealed a pitch that she made (and was turned down) for the finish of her match with Liv Morgan at Extreme Rules. 

Rowdy Ronda beat Morgan by submission in their Extreme Rules match - when Liv passed out in the hold - to bag the title. 

Speaking on her recent YouTube gaming stream, Rousey outlined the idea she presented and why it was rejected:

"Yeah, actually I pitched the finish to be on thumbtacks [at Extreme Rules but it was turned down]. She [Liv Morgan] put down thumbtacks and powerbomb me onto the thumbtacks and then as a repeat of our finish before, I would go for the armbar on the thumbtacks but they start counting the pin but then I would have to push up onto my one shoulder, like into the thumbtacks to keep the armbar on...and Liv would be biting her hand trying not to tap and then pass out face down into the thumbtacks and have her hand there to protect her face. 

"But, they said we can't do thumbtacks anymore. That legally, we can't purposely injure people and cut their skin and stuff. I don't know, so I was like, 'Well, how about tiny, little maple leaf pins?'.They're like, 'No'. I'm like, 'How about a bunch of screws? There on the side, it's the ground'. They said, 'Nope'. So..."

The last time WWE sanctioned somebody taking a bump into thumbtacks was for Dean Ambrose and Chris Jericho's Ambrose Asylum match at Extreme Rules 2016.
