5 Feuds for Ronda Rousey once she returns to WWE
Bayley, the new SmackDown Women's Champion, is a different woman now than she was during Ronda Rousey's time in WWE. Even though these two had a match many months ago, the bout suffered from lack of story and any true purpose. Essentially it was a throwaway match. Bayley was struggling to find momentum and was put away by Rousey.
However, the dynamics have changed now. Bayley is a vicious heel that would do anything to win and she isn't afraid to be aggressive. Therefore, she would make for an interesting Ronda Rousey opponent. 'The Baddest Woman on the Planet' would fit in well as a SmackDown superstar, and she could instantly earn a title shot due to her credibility.
With the roles different, it would be intriguing to see how things play out between the two. Bayley could retain her title through shenanigans, or surprisingly even defeat Rousey for a clean victory. It wouldn't be expected and could shock the fans. Not only does it elevate Bayley, but also throws the first hurdle at Rousey upon her return.
#1. Becky Lynch
This is the most obvious entry on this list. While Ronda Rousey dominated the Women's Division, Becky Lynch's star was on the rise and eventually eclipsed Rousey altogether. Lynch won the RAW and SmackDown Women's Championships in the main event of WrestleMania 35. Since that night, Rousey hasn't been seen in WWE.
After WrestleMania, Becky continued her strong run at the top. Despite losing her SmackDown Title, she's been atop the RAW Women's Division for a long time now. She defeated Lacey Evans on multiple occasions before getting into a feud with the returning Sasha Banks. Some fans expected her to lose, but she held on to the title.
In the WWE Draft, she was the number 1 overall pick, which indicates the company has big plans for her going forward. Those plans may include a feud with Ronda Rousey. They have history and that is enough to propel their story. It is worth noting that the two women have never had a singles match before, and we could see that upon Rousey's return.
Whether or not Rousey wins the title remains to be seen, but a feud with Becky Lynch could prove to be one of the greatest of all time.
