After a hellacious beating the night before at Survivor Series, it was up in the air as to what was next for the WWE women’s champion, Ronda Rousey. Charlotte Flair put the wood to Ronda at the PPV and Ronda’s health was a question afterward. Well, the WWE moved right on from that and she defended her title on RAW.
They didn’t even have Ronda sell the beating that she took. Rather, they seemed to start a new angle with her. For those not in the know, at the Survivor Series PPV Ronda fought Charlotte Flair, who isn’t even on the same show as her.
During Flair’s beating of Ronda, Flair could be seen saying, “I’m the man”. That is the phrase that current Smackdown champion, Becky Lynch uses. I’m guessing that they are building an angle between Flair and Lynch on Smackdown and the match with Ronda is already a distant memory.
At the end of Ronda’s match, she is confronted by her old nemesis, Nia Jax. Clearly, Ronda’s angle is swinging that direction now.
The WWE have a unique ability to pretend certain things never happened. Ronda vs Charlotte appears to be one of those things.
