As the summer’s biggest party, WWE’s SummerSlam event has come to a close, fans and wrestling enthusiasts are still buzzing about the highlights and controversies that unfolded at Ford Field. One such controversy surrounds Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler’s match, which was reportedly an issue with WWE Creative and the talent involved. According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, there were conflicts between WWE Creative and the duo over the idea of MMA Rules, which seems to be the source of debate.

The issue at hand was not about the outcome of the match, which saw Shayna Baszler emerge victorious after the referee called for the bell, but rather about the approach to the combat scene. Meltzer explained that some individuals are stuck in a traditional mindset about combat, while others think differently. This disparity in perspective seemed to cause tension between WWE creative and Rousey and Baszler.

As previously reported, Rousey and Baszler had to rush to their SummerSlam match, as Rousey has a “hard out date” from WWE, which has left fans wondering if her time in the wrestling world is drawing to a close. While it’s not confirmed that Rousey is leaving WWE, it wouldn’t be unexpected to see her take a step towards the exit. Whatever the future holds for Rousey and Baszler, it’s clear that the tensions between WWE creative and the duo ran high behind the scenes at SummerSlam.

The controversy surrounding Rousey and Baszler’s match serves as a reminder that even the biggest events in professional wrestling are not immune to creative disagreements and tensions between talent and creative teams. As fans, it’s fascinating to speculate about what the future might hold for these wrestling sensations, who have undoubtedly left their mark on the WWE universe.
