However, since day 1 of the Flair vs Rousey angle, it has been all about their ‘babies’, a little girl for Rousey and the SmackDown women’s title for Flair. And they fought for their goal with utmost fieriness as well.
Ronda Rousey pins down Flair in the “I Quit” match on the Mother’s Day
WrestleMania Backlash witnessed a far more competitive clash of titans for the Ronda Rousey vs Charlotte Flair angle, compared to the WrestleMania 38. In the end, the former UFC champion once again won a WWE title as she beat The Queen for the SmackDown Women’s Title at Providence, R.I. at Dunkin’ Donuts Center.
Moreover, the match saw a thrilling brawl between the two superstars that involved kendo sticks, the iconic steel chairs, and even some other weapons, including a camera at one point. The two fiery ladies dragged the chaos into the arena as well. Also, the fans cheered “we want table” seeing them power bomb into the barricades.
Still, none of them was ready to say ‘I Quit’. After all the wrings and crashes on the floor, Charlotte Flair locked Rousey in a figure-eight with the assist of the steel chair. But The Queen evoked the strongest fighter in the universe in the Rowdy One, when she said “Happy Mother’s Day”.
Rousey knew Flair was going to say this, and she applied it back with a bit more intensity. The Queen finally quitted and handed over her ‘baby’, the title to the Rousey. Also, Flair ended up with a distal radius fracture. In a nutshell, it was the perfect result on a Mother’s Day.
