5 Reasons why Ronda Rousey should turn heel
With the completion of the first PPV of the year (Royal Rumble), WWE is officially on the road to WrestleMania. 'Mania season is when WWE pushes to showcase the most compelling storylines as fans from all over the globe tune-in. One option worth exploring is turning Ronda Rousey heel.
Ronda Rousey has taken WWE by storm since her arrival at last year's Royal Rumble event. Her debut match, a WrestleMania mixed tag team match against ‘The Authority’ garnered rave reviews while exceeding all expectations.
Since her debut match Ronda has competed at the top of the card; headlining PPV events and RAW countless times. With Lesnar being regularly absent, Rousey has been the top champion on RAW.
Top superstars stay fresh by elevating their performances and evolving their gimmicks. A Rousey heel turn would be an exciting change as we head towards WrestleMania.
#5 The pool of face talent is vastly deeper
With Superstars such as Asuka, Bayley, Becky, Charlotte, Naomi, Natalya, Ember Moon, Nikki Cross, Sasha Banks, top NXT talent, and more, the list of potential face opponents is endless. Even Alexa Bliss attempting to bend the rules would garner a positive reaction from the crowd.
Ronda being a heel would elevate perspective storylines for several women on the roster. Ronda is an unstoppable force who heads into each PPV as the clear favorite. These storylines would play out better if she were a heel, giving support to an unlikely challenger who could finally knock her off her throne.
The mouthwatering prospect of a battle between the four horsewomen of UFC and the four horsewomen of WWE would be much more evident with a heel Ronda as Baszler, Shafir, and Duke are already a heel stable down in NXT.
