WWE SmackDown star and the current and two times WWE SmackDown Women’s champion Ronda Rousey who is also a former WWE Raw Women’s Champion recently expressed her disappointment for letting Shotzi down at Survivor Series.
Survivor Series is obviously one of the best WWE events of 2022. It featured only five matches on the card, but even with five matches it is on top of everything. It featured two WarGames matches for the first time on the main roster of WWE and both matches were really excellent. Apart from the War Games matches it also featured a triple threat match for the United States championship and a one on one match between Finn Balor and AJ Styles. All of these matches will really good.
Ronda Rousey Admits Her Disappointment For Letting Shotzi Down At Survivor Series
The only late down of Survivor Series 2022 was the SmackDown women’s championship match between Ronda Rousey and Shotzi. Not only it was the worst match of the night but one of the worst matches of 2022. Everybody involved in this match, even the referee got heavyly criticized for everything that went on. It can also be said that this is the only match that held down this event from being the best WWE event of 2022.
After this match, Rousey is being badly criticized by the world of professional wrestling for delivering such a terrible match even after being pushed to the moon. She has a really short WWE career, and in this short time she has already won three Women’s championships.
Shotzi is also seems to be losing her push after this match. She was already being criticized after her performance at Money in the Bank, this match could be the final nail in her coffin. But we seriously hope these women deliver better matches in the future.
Ronda Rousey who is also a former WWE Raw Women’s Champion recently spoke to where she expressed her disappointment for letting Shotzi down at Survivor Series. She said;
“You ever wake up from a deep sleep and think of a cringe moment in your life? And you lay awake in bed? Well I had one of those this morning. I woke up at 6:30 this morning and I was like, oh God. That DDT on the apron [Rousey laughed]. So let me explain what happened.
“I actually pitched that spot because I loved that she [Shotzi] does that but we couldn’t practice it in my ring because the ropes were too loose, and then we couldn’t practice it when we got to the arena because there was these big cages so, everybody was like — I’ve taken DDTs before but I’ve never helped anybody over the floor so they were like, ‘Okay, you gotta have your hand here on her leg, another hand on her hip and you’re gonna guide her over’ and everyone was so focused on, ‘Gotta guide her over.
“Guide her to the floor’ that it was literally all that was on my mind when it happened and so when I was like, guide her and when she was down, I was like, oh f*ck. Just go to where you’re supposed to go. So, yeah, I f*cked it up because I was so concerned with keeping somebody safe and a lot of times when you see me do something the first time, it’s the first time I ever did it. It’s the first time I ever did it, I was really concerned with keeping Shotzi safe and I made it look bad and you know what?
“I’m sorry, okay. F*cking shoot me. Apparently, I deserve to be fired or burned. It reminds me of Monty Python and the Holy Grail when they were like, ‘Burn her!’… There weren’t calls to fire anybody when Madcap Moss and Big E were spiked on their heads and they were like, burn her anyway! I’m so sorry that I was so concerned with keeping someone safe that I made the bump look bad.
Ronda Rousey continued, “But what really bummed me out is when my favorite thing in matches which is turning around a hostile crowd and we’re in Boston so of course they’re hostile because, you know, they’re angry at the fact that they live there and right when we got them turned around with the ‘holy sh*ts’ and the crossbody into the fans, I’m like, f*ck yeah, we’re turning it around.”
“So, I was kind of bummed though because we worked on that match for two weeks and we were really excited about it and I feel like I really kind of failed Shotzi. I really wanted to showcase her sh*t and make all of her sh*t look great and show everybody how great she is and that’s one of the main reasons I wanted to come back for this run is showcase a new talent and show people…
“And show everybody how great Liv [Morgan] is and Shotzi is and Raquel [Rodriguez] and Shayna [Baszler] and showcase all these women that haven’t been getting the attention that I think that they deserve and I failed. But that wasn’t the match. That was beginning of the match and I’m kind of bummed we’re getting judged from not really what we put together.” Concludes Ronda Rousey.
