Ronda Rousey was praised by Charlotte Flair
Charlotte Flair won the SmackDown Women's Title by beating Ronda Rousey on the final episode of WWE SmackDown in 2022.
Speaking in a recent interview with The Ringer, The Queen praised her on-screen rival. She said:
“The demeanor, the attitude. No one had ever seen that,” Charlotte said. “And then she went off to do Fast & Furious, Entourage, Sports Illustrated. She definitely paved the way, 100 percent. Serena and Venus [Williams, the tennis stars so famous you likely don’t need me to tell you their surname] obviously, as well. And I also think the U.S. women’s soccer team that won the Olympics. I think it was a combination of those things. But Ronda definitely opened doors.”
At WrestleMania 39, Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler will team up to compete in a four-way match.
