Looks Like Someone Isn’t Happy With Ronda Rousey’s Rumble Visit
Nikki Bella had a great return to the WWE, eliminating her sister, Brie, in the Royal Rumble before being the last competitor to bow out to the winner, Asuka.
However, all the talk after Sunday night’s action at Wells Fargo Center in Philly centered around Ronda Rousey’s appearance after the women’s Royal Rumble which teased her being involved in WrestleMania. Shortly after, news broke that Rousey will join WWE as a full-time performer and its biggest mainstream star.
Some fans on social media began criticizing the appearance because they felt it overshadowed the match, and it appears Nikki may agree.
On Twitter, Nikki retweeted WWE’s tweet ahead of a video package for Raw that featured Rousey’s appearance at the end of the Rumble pay-per-view. In one Tweet from the official @WWE account, they teased that fans would get to “relive the moment you’ve ALL been talking about.” The graphic was of Rousey and the video highlights were focused on Rousey’s appearance and the subsequent media coverage. Nikki reacted, “The FIRST EVER WOMENS ROYAL RUMBLE????”
She also retweeted another @WWE account tweet that included a video of Rousey giving her candid thoughts on her appearance. Nikki reacted, “Wonder what all the 30 other women candid thoughts were too? N #firsteverwomensroyalrumble”
Nikki may have a point but I can understand what WWE is doing here. Rousey is their biggest mainstream star and the idea is to use her star power to help boost the women’s division.
