Ronda Rousey, Stephanie McMahon/HHH Match In Works For WrestleMania

Published

on

It appears that Ronda Rousey’s appearance at the end of the Royal Rumble gave fans an indication as to whom she is going to be stepping into the ring with at WrestleMania 34.

It is apparently not going to be one of the 3 women Rousey was standing in the ring with, Asuka, Charlotte Flair and Alexa Bliss, but whom she interacted with outside of the ring.

The match has actually been in the works for a few years, dating back to WrestleMania 32 and is now in the works for WrestleMania 34.

According to sources, WWE is looking at a mixed-tag match that would pit Ronda Rousey and a male superstar against Stephanie McMahon and HHH.

Now, WWE’s top name for the spot is The Rock, as he was involved in the setup, but due to scheduling it is very hard to even pencil the Rock’s name in for the match, however WWE is going to give a “full court press”.

RAW general manager Kurt Angle has also been discussed as there were seeds planted for an Angle/HHH match back at Survivor Series and a tag-match could be best for all parties involved with Angle’e experience providing a leadership role for Rousey.

WWE could also entertain Roman Reigns, a longshot, in that spot with the hopes that Rousey’s popularity and the dislike for HHH and McMahon could help give Reigns a boost. But WWE is still intent on a Reigns/Lesnar main event.

Other names that could be considered are John Cena, if the Undertaker match that is penciled in for the event falls through and Batista, who has mentioned wanting to come back for one final WWE run and also has mentioned a desire to work with Triple H.

WWE Smackdown vs. Raw: Who won this week? January 7, 2019

Published

The Good

For Raw, the main event between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose for the Intercontinental championship was a great match and a good way to end this rivalry and move forward with both competitors. Ambrose ended up winning after Bobby Lashley interfered and attacked Rollins. This made sense as the show opened with Rollins and Lashley brawling and these two have been at each other for the past few weeks. What’s really good to take out of this is now Rollins can focus on the Royal Rumble and Ambrose can focus on who is next contender is for his championship.

For Smackdown, the push for Shane McMahon and The Miz to go for the tag team championship was an entertaining way to help build this match up at the Royal Rumble. After Shane expressed aggressiveness and prove worthiness to earn a championship match, the Miz tried to impress him by going out there and challenging the Bar to that match by himself. The challenge was accepted and even though that isn’t what Shane meant, they are getting the match that wanted when they first formed.

The Bad

For Raw, the Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar “face to face” segment fell flat. Strowman struggled on his delivery of insults to Lesnar, and the “face to face” was more of just Lesnar walking around the ring over and over again without getting in Strowman’s face. At this point, anybody but Brock Lesnar needs to hold the Universal championship in order to give it a more important feel. 

For Smackdown, there was nothing they had that was really too bad. Smackdown was able to give proper time for all the rivalries they are building up. 

The Final Verdict

Smackdown has been hitting on all the right cylinders with their shows for a while now. Once they establish a championship match for the PPV, they give proper buildup and interesting scenarios for each one. Along with that, when Smackdown wants to build up a rivalry just for their show, they are able to do that effectively as well. While Raw does try to do the same, there segments and matches just don’t have the spark that Smackdown is able to deliver. So, with that said, Smackdown had the better show this week. In conclusion, the Royal Rumble is one of the big 4 PPV’s for the year of 2019 for WWE, and so far it looks like everything is going right for Smackdown while Raw is still trying to find their footing.
