What WWE is reportedly trying to accomplish with Ronda Rousey heading into 2023

There has been speculation in recent months that Ronda Rousey will face Becky Lynch at Wrestlemania 39 in California. During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com discussed Ronda Rousey’s current direction on WWE Smackdown with her being “suspended” and defying authority…

“The idea for Ronda Rousey actually is to get her to be what she was before which is to break out of the pack, mainline woman Superstar. Not just a woman on the roster who is below [Bianca] Belair and all that, which she kind of was becoming.”

“They want to get her back to ‘special attraction, big Brock Lesnar star.’ So that’s the goal of what they’re doing right now. The belief was that at the end, because she’s Liv Morgan, [Ronda] ends up as a heel. What they’re doing now isn’t necessarily to make her a heel, it’s to make her a big big star. If she ends up being a babyface from this, that’s fine too.” (quotes courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)

Rousey attacked WWE official Adam Pearce during the September 2nd 2022 edition of Smackdown.
