Rousey Shifts Gears, Focusing on Tag Team Championships

Ronda Rousey’s highly anticipated return to WWE was met with mixed reactions from fans and critics. Despite her impressive combat sports background, her WWE run has been marred by inconsistent booking and fan dissatisfaction. However, WWE appears to have adjusted its plans for Rousey, shifting focus from singles matches to the tag team division. According to WrestlingNews.co, WWE initially planned for Rousey to defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Rhea Ripley, but that plan was scrapped, and Charlotte Flair made a surprise return to claim the title instead.

Rousey, who has reportedly lost interest in pursuing Charlotte Flair, has since been paired up with Shayna Baszler. As a result, the duo is now scheduled to compete for the Women’s Tag Team Titles at WrestleMania. The nature of the match remains unclear, with uncertainty surrounding whether it will be a standard tag team match against current champions Lita and Becky Lynch or if additional teams will be involved.

WWE insiders suggest that Rousey’s desire to team with Baszler is driving the decision to focus on the tag team division. As one anonymous source revealed, “Ronda is pushing for the tag titles. That’s the match that she wants and whatever she wants she gets.” Many in the WWE believe that Rousey and Baszler are set to go on a prolonged tag title run, potentially lasting through the spring and summer.

While some fans may be relieved that Rousey is no longer in the main event title picture, her impact on women’s wrestling is undeniable. Regardless of her future plans, Rousey’s presence on WWE programming will be missed. For now, fans will have to wait and see when Rousey will get her shot at the Women’s Tag Team Championships.
