Ronda Rousey won the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble match. The Baddest Woman On The Planet returned to WWE after a nearly three-year absence. She eliminated four superstars to win the 30-woman over the top battle royal and earned the right to challenge the Champion of her choosing at Wrestlemania.

The Olympic bronze medallist has a history with both RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and her counterpart on the blue brand, Charlotte Flair. The final match of her initial run in the company came against both women in the main event of Wrestlemania 35, where Lynch emerged as the victor.

Ronda Rousey is one of the few bonafide female stars on the WWE roster. Besides Charlotte Flair, few women on Smackdown have the pedigree to lead the division. Rousey winning the title at the Stupendous two-night extravaganza would add much-needed star power to the blue brand.

As champion, the Rowdy One would elevate some of the fresher faces such as Aaliyah, Shotzi and future NXT call-ups on the Friday night show.

Considering that the men’s division on that particular brand is also thin on star power, it seems necessary to have Rousey on it as champion to help create more stars.

Ronda Rousey’s WrestleMania opponent, Charlotte Flair, has had a lukewarm reign on the blue brand.

The Queen of all Eras has been firing on all cylinders, putting on quality matches with all challengers. However, factors such as Toni Storm’s sudden departure from the company and the sparsity of title defenses at premium live vents have derailed her momentum.

Rousey getting the victory at the show of shows would breathe new life into both the title scene and Flair’s future storylines on the brand.

#3: Ronda Rousey as Smackdown Women’s Champion would offset the imbalance in star power between the blue brand and Monday Night RAW

The Smackdown roster needs a star of the Ronda Rousey’s calibre more than RAW does. Her presence on the brand helps it compete with the stacked red brand roster. With the likes of Becky Lynch, Lita, Bianca Belair, Liv Morgan and Rhea Ripley all working Monday Nights, Rousey’s star power is better utilized on Friday nights.

The absence of top Smackdown Superstars like Bayley and Sasha Banks makes it all the more imperative that the former UFC Champion captures the title at the show of shows. This would give the division a shot in the arm going into the post-Wrestlemania season.
