Backstage News On Ronda Rousey's RAW Commentary Last Week, Ronda Rousey's WWE Contract

Backstage News On Ronda Rousey's RAW Commentary Last Week, Ronda Rousey's WWE Contract
Some of Ronda Rousey's awkward lines during commentary for last week's non-title RAW match between Natalya and RAW Women's Champion Nia Jax were scripted, according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio.

One of the lines in question had Michael Cole recall how Jax had previously said Rousey was "ripe for the picking." Rousey responded with, "Ripe for the picking is something only my husband calls me."

The line came off strange the first time she said it but then the line was repeated after a break.

Meltzer noted that some people within WWE believe it was a bad call to put Rousey in a place like that with such a scripted line. Rousey clearly did not feel comfortable with the line as she came off standoffish.

Speaking of Rousey, WSVN-TV Entertainment spoke with Ric Flair and he said that Rousey's contract will expire next year. Flair said:
"In my humble opinion, if Rousey wants to elevate her status in the company she needs to go through The Queen and The Queen ain't afraid of her, I got news for ya. I just saw her deadlift 315 lbs and she can bench 205 lbs for 6 reps. She is gifted beyond belief. I'm not involved obviously in any of the thinking but if they're ever going to put the women where they belong, this is the year because I think Ronda has only signed a one-year deal and then she wants to get out of there. She wants to have kids and all that. She just needs to be be prepared to lose. Not if sure if Ronda likes that."
