Ronda Rousey Was Ready To Call Out WWE Over Lack Of Women's Matches At WrestleMania Backlash
Ronda Rousey wanted more women's matches at WWE WrestleMania Backlash
Ronda Rousey wants to fight for women's wrestling.
WWE held their WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view in May of 2022 but the show only featured one women's match as Rousey challenged Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women's Championship in an "I Quit" Match. Instead, the show featured several matches from the men's division, including Omos vs. Bobby Lashley, and Madcap Moss vs. Happy Corbin.
This is something Rousey was unhappy with and she revealed on a vlog that she wanted to call out WWE for only booking one women's match. The UFC Hall of Famer also doesn't want "women's" to be a part of female titles any longer but WWE are seemingly reluctant to change the titles.
"I wanted to call out WWE for only having one women's match out of six matches at Backlash. We're more than one-sixth of the company and I need to do my part and make sure more women are at the forefront. Also, I don't want to say 'women's' in the title anymore. I think they were kind of resistant to taking it out. I was like, 'can I just not have to say it?' That's kind of where it's at," Rousey said.
Rousey is the reigning SmackDown Women's Champion, having regained the belt from Liv Morgan at Extreme Rules on October 8.
