4 things WWE must do to ensure Ronda Rousey's success
Let's hope WWE doesn't drop the ball with The Rowdy One.
It has been more than a month since Ronda Rousey debuted as a Superstar on WWE's Royal Rumble PPV. However, it is safe to say that things haven't exactly been going very well for the former UFC Champion.
On her debut, Ronda entered the arena to a rousing cheer, got in the ring with the two Women's Champions and winner of the Royal Rumble Asuka, and just pointed at the WrestleMania sign. It definitely was one of the best debuts of all time.
Since then though, things have gone slightly downhill with messed up promos, botches, and underwhelming segments. It is not too late though, because Rousey's star power, that she earned in UFC, still ensures a loud pop whenever she comes out to the ring.
That being said, here are five things WWE must start doing immediately, to get Ronda Rousey over with the fans.
#1 No mic time for now
The first time Ronda Rousey spoke to the WWE Universe in the ring, was at the Elimination Chamber during her contract signing segment. It is safe to say that it was cringeworthy. Within a minute or so, it was very apparent that Ronda was very green on the mic and it got more and more difficult to watch as she continued. Even WWE seem to have realized this as they have edited out the entire segment of Ronda talking, on their official YouTube channel video.
Even if we excuse it as her first promo, there still doesn't seem to be much improvement as she dropped the ball yet again on Raw this past week. Ronda was supposed to reveal Stephanie McMahon as her opponent at the end of a drumroll but ended up blurting it out a few seconds too early.
The best thing to do for now is to stop giving Rousey the mic and just have her show up and be a silent badass. Sticking a manager with her might do wonders too.
