As expected, Ronda Rousey is your new WWE women’s champion. We sort of knew it was coming because she is the biggest star in the WWE right now and whoever the world champion is, is counted on to carry the company. Therefore, her victory over Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam last night made the most sense.
For the last, God-knows-how-long, Brock Lesnar was the WWE champion. However, when Brock was the champion he was barely on television. The WWE have never really done something like that because the champion is supposed to be a brand ambassador. With Brock Lesnar, he doesn’t care about anything but Brock Lesnar. Coincidentally, he lost his WWE title last night and looks to be focusing on Daniel Cormier and the UFC heavyweight title.
Rousey is a different story though. She loves the WWE and she loves her job there. Holding that strap means you are representing the company wherever you go. Ronda’s reign began last night and her superstar status continues to grow.
