LOL. Ronda ringside in the WWE and a bat comes flying in. Not kidding.

LOL-Ronda-ringside-WWE-bat-flying-kidding

Yes, Ronda Rousey had a ringside encounter with a bat during Monday Night RAW. No, we are not kidding. As Ronda Rousey stood outside of the Ring watching a match between Ember Moon and Alexa Bliss, a furry blind varmint swooped down by her. The former UFC bantamweight champion did not look pleased.

In fact, Rousey looked downright stressed. She continued unhappily saying,

“There is a bat. There is a bat”.

Rousey did not seem to get on board with her new pal, either. At one point it looks like she motioned to the back for something. However, it’s unclear whether or not she was signaling for someone to come out and get rid of the flying rat, or if she just put her hand on her head in distress.

Regardless of it all, it’s awfully funny to watch.

Ronda Rousey beats the snot out of the hired security to get to Alexa Bliss

rousey-beats-snot-hired-security-alexa-bliss

After Ronda Rousey’s heartfelt message in the ring to Natalya Neidhart about her father’s passing, her rival, Alexa Bliss, came out to ruin the moment. This Sunday is the WWE’s second biggest PPV of the year, Summerslam, and the WWE are in full promotion mode. Bliss hired a security force to stand between her and Rousey just to make sure she was protected.

Ronda will battle Alexa Bliss for the WWE women’s championship and on the final Monday Night RAW before the PPV, they have to go all out. Bliss hid behind the security team and talked trash, which is ‘How to be a Heel 101’ stuff.

As usual, Ronda threw everyone on their asses but didn’t manage to get her hands on Bliss. This is WWE’s way of building anticipation for the fight that goes down on Sunday. It’s certainly working because Ronda remains the WWE’s biggest star. It’s curious as to if the WWE will put the championship belt on her at Summerslam.

Ronda Rousey’s heartfelt sentiments about Jim Neidhart’s death

ronda-heartfelt-sentiments-jim-death

We all know that Ronda Rousey is very emotional. For her to have to give a speech on live television to Natalya Neidhart about Natalya’s recently deceased father, had to be tough. WWE legend, Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart, passed away a day ago and the wrestling world is reeling. Rousey expressed her heartfelt sentiments about his passing and make no mistake, the emotion that she showed was genuine.

Natalya is one of Ronda’s best friends in the WWE and also her trainer, so this one hits close to home for her. Rousey also lost her father and obviously, she understands what Nattie is going through.

In this time of mourning, Rousey’s message to her friend was simple.

“Stay strong, Natalya Neidhart. We all love you.”

Damn right, we do.

WWE legend, Mick Foley, in Vince McMahon’s ear about Cris Cyborg

wwe-legend-mick-foley-vince-ear-cris-cyborg

The receiver of violence, Mick Foley, weighed in on the potential of Cris Cyborg signing with the WWE. Obviously, we haven’t heard anything about this being a real thing, but anything is possible these days. If the WWE wants someone on their show, all Vince McMahon has to do is WANT to make it happen.

Foley has been courting Cyborg over Twitter and it looks like the two will be meeting up soon for a viewing party. Foley addressed the possibility of Cyborg joining the WWE.

“I had a meeting with Mr McMahon and I specifically told him to keep an eye on this Cyborg vs Nunes fight. She’s going to be larger than life and would make a great WWE superstar down the line. She’ll concentrate first and foremost on this superfight and I think it will be one of the biggest fights in UFC history.”

Ronda Rousey vs Cris Cyborg never happened in the UFC and it looks like the only way it could come to fruition would be in the WWE. If I’m being honest here, Rousey and Cyborg on tv together would do massive numbers.

While many MMA fans are purists and do not want to see a showdown between the two happen anywhere but the cage; I think it would be incredibly entertaining, despite not being real.

I’m in. Who is with me?

Ronda Rousey on the red carpet is a modern day chameleon

ronda-carpet-modern-chameleon

Ronda Rousey is out there for the world to see right now. No more is she just in the MMA spotlight, but she’s in the mainstream spotlight. She wears many hats and has managed to be a chameleon of sorts. Whatever Ronda does, she adapts and seems to blend in splendidly.

I used to have Ronda Rousey on my radio show almost every week. She was just a gal who did judo and posted on the Underground Forums. She wasn’t a big deal; Until she was.

Ronda Rousey became bigger than the UFC and now, she’s taking the world over. Whether it’s acting in Twizzlers commercials, starring in Mile 22, or killing it in the WWE; Rousey is a household name.

A lot of fans like to rip her apart because, well, it’s what MMA fans do when someone loses a fight. Like Ronda says in this video, she is more than just a fighter. Yeah, she may have lost her last two fights but she is winning at life more than most of us will ever know.

Ronda’s WWE RAW match debut. Works the crowd and slays again.

wwe-raw-match-debut-works-crowd-slays

We may sound like a broken record here at MikeSwick.com, but Ronda Rousey is killing it in the WWE. In fact, she is doing so well there that it’s hard to decide where she was a bigger star; The WWE or UFC. Ronda showed the ability to sell a match as she works the crowd and puts on tremendous matches. Her in-ring singles debut on Monday Night RAW last night proved to be no different.

The trend of Ronda being the WWE’s top draw remains unwavered, as her segment once again had the most views of the three-hour show. She beat her opponent, Alicia Fox, from pillar to post using her traditional judo moves combined with her new wrestling arsenal.

She also seems to have shed some of the initial awkwardness that she showed when debuting on the WWE scene. Ronda looks more in her element now, as opposed to when she first began and looked like an untrained guest.

Ronda is a megastar and we are all witnesses.

Ronda Rousey’s first WWE Monday Night RAW match goes down tonight

Ronda Rousey will have her first match on WWE’s Monday Night RAW tonight. If you haven’t seen her doing pro wrestling, I highly recommend that you tune in and watch her.

Coincidentally, when Ronda began her WWE run a few … Read moreRonda Rousey’s first WWE Monday Night RAW match goes down tonight

Ronda Rousey on Good Morning America being all famous and stuff

ronda-rousey-good-morning-america-famous-stuff

People just can’t get enough Ronda Rousey in their lives right now. I mean, this girl is a superstar and she is EVERYWHERE. Her latest stop on the ‘Ronda is super famous’ tour was on Good Morning America. She was there to promote her new movie, her WWE career, and basically just herself. From the looks of it, fans can’t get enough of her.

While it seems that her appearance was to promote her movie, ‘Mile 22’, it’s impossible to not talk about the WWE or UFC. Rousey was a huge star in the UFC and no one predicted that she would become even bigger once she left.

However, here we are and she is a bonafide A-lister. Something tells me that Meryl Streep didn’t break numerous arms on her journey to the top.

WWE’s Sheamus talks Ronda’s impact and if Conor would be a good fit

sheamus-impact-conor-good-fit

TMZ caught up with a very talkative WWE superstar named Sheamus. TMZ are known for asking one of two questions: 1. Anything to do with Conor McGregor. 2. Anything to do with Ronda Rousey. Since Sheamus gave them a lot of his time and very cooperative, they asked him about both. He went on to talk about the impact that Ronda has had on the company.

*Spoiler alert* She’s killing it.

Sheamus doesn’t care whether or not Conor comes to the WWE, despite also being of Irish descent. The massive ginger only cares about the WWE signing people who help bring more viewers to the WWE. If that person is McGregor, bring him on in.

Right now, Ronda Rousey is that person and Sheamus is well aware of her celebrity.

“(Ronda’s) great, man. Anyone who brings eyes on the WWE and who brings attention; Whoever brings more people into seats, is a benefit for the WWE. That’s how it works. It’s showbusiness”.

If you haven’t watched Ronda wrestle because you are an MMA purist and feel that she is somehow slighting you; Trust us. Watch one of her matches. She’s incredible.

Cris Cyborg open to the possibilities of taking on Ronda Rousey in WWE

cris-cyborg-possibilities-ronda-wwe

Let’s face it, the odds of Ronda Rousey fighting Cris Cyborg in MMA are now very slim. With Ronda transitioning and succeeding in the WWE, the only way that these two will ever fight would be in the squared circle with a pre-determined outcome. Cris Cyborg embraces the possibilities and says she’s down for it.

There is no real rivalry between the two ladies anymore because they are in two different career places now. However, Cyborg going to the WWE makes a very intriguing storyline that the sports-entertainment company could build off of. Cris was very supportive of Ronda’s move as well as the WWE itself.

Cyborg knows that if she were to transition over there, she’d have to train her ass off. MMA and WWE are totally different in terms of physicality, but Cyborg would be down to give it a shot. One day, maybe.

For now, Cris has plenty of women in MMA trying to dethrone her which keeps her busy enough on this side of the combat sports fence.

Ronda Rousey on the Kids’ Choice Awards orange carpet with the fam

ronda-rousey-awards-orange-carpet

The Browne-Rousey clan stepped into the spotlight on the orange carpet when they were guests of the 2018 Kids’ Choice Awards. Travis Browne played the part of good husband and smiled when he’s supposed to. He also seemed to understand that Ronda Rousey is the star and he knows when to make himself scarce when needed.

Ronda seems to really be adjusting very well to the megastar lifestyle. Gone are the days where she can just park her car and walk to blocks to an event without being mobbed. Now, it’s a life of limousines and media doing anything to get a piece of you. I must say, everyone seems to be adjusting rather seamlessly.

I really tried to research whether or not Ronda got slimed. However, nothing came up.

I want to get slimed with Nickelodeon gak. That sounds amazing.

Ronda is freakin EVERYWHERE! Now doing Twizzlers commercials.

ronda-everywhere-twizzlers-commercials

Ronda is out of the UFC? No Problem. She is suspended from the WWE? Whatevs. None of those things matter because Ronda Rousey is a working girl. Apparently, during her time away from wrestling Ronda has been having staredowns with Twizzlers and shooting commercials for them.

The Twizzlers campaign is that “No one can be serious with Twizzlers”.

So, they grab the toughest person that they know and make a commercial out of her. That, friends, is what is called ‘good marketing’. Ronda attempts to stare the Twizzler down, but ultimately fails. Why? Because you can’t be serious with Twizzlers. Boom, successful ad campaign.

Freakin genius.

Hapa and Rowdy in a mixed WWE tag match? Why the hell not?

hapa-rowdy-mixed-wwe-tag-match

While UFC heavyweight, Travis Browne is under contract with the UFC, he’ll never say ‘never’ to working in pro wrestling with his wife, Ronda Rousey. The media caught up with Browne and asked if he’d have any interest in working a WWE match with Ronda and Hapa was totally on board.

“I’ll never say no to the possibility of going out there and wrestling. I’d love to go out there and work with my wife. That would be so much fun.”

Big Travis does realize that right now it is his wife’s time to shine and he seems happy to watch her excelling. However, he hasn’t ruled out joining her and taking over the wrestling world.

Ronda Rousey violates suspension to brutalize Alexa Bliss

rousey-violates-suspension-brutalize-alexa-bliss

If there is one reason to violate the terms of your suspension in the WWE, it’s so you can brutalize your future opponent. Ronda Rousey agrees and she made an appearance on WWE Monday Night RAW to confront Alexa Bliss. Confront, she did and Bliss suffered the wrath of a very distraught Ronda Rousey.

Rousey continues to be WWE’s top dog, as her popularity is above and beyond anyone on the WWE roster. The storyline is that Ronda will now get a title shot at the WWE’s second biggest PPV of the year, Summerslam. With as much as Rousey has captured the WWE fanbase, they’d be hard-pressed not to put the belt around her waist. The WWE likes to put the title on people that elevate the company and right now, no one is more fitting of that role than Ronda.

Her popularity at the moment is staggering.

Ronda Rousey is suspended from WWE, but bought a front row ticket

rousey-suspended-bought-front-row-ticket

Before we even get started here: 1. Yes, we know Ronda Rousey isn’t REALLY suspended from the WWE. 2. We are also aware that Ronda did not actually buy a front row ticket to WWE Extreme Rules last night and that is is all a work. 3. Ronda is an entertainer now and pro-wrestling is her job.

Now that all of that is out of the way, Ronda Rousey made an appearance at WWE’s PPV, Extreme Rules. A few weeks ago, Ronda snapped after getting screwed out of the title by Alexa Bliss. Her actions brought her a one-month suspension from WWE’s Monday Night RAW television show. However, it said nothing about buying a ticket to an event as a fan.

Ronda was sitting in the front row to watch the women’s championship match with her husband and UFC heavyweight, Travis Browne. When her friend Natalya got jumped, Ronda couldn’t take being a fan anymore. Rousey jumped the barricade and put a beatdown on Mickie James, who literally didn’t sell anything Ronda was doing. She finished James off with another one of her brutal judo throws.

Rousey remains one of, if not the, biggest stars in the WWE. She should be back on WWE television next Monday night.
