Ronda Rousey Reveals What Ending She Pitched For Her Extreme Rules Match
Rousey has always been a very dominant champion. At the Money in the Bank pay per view event, she defended her Championship successfully against Natalya. After her title defence, Liv Morgan who won the Money in the Bank ladder match earlier that night cashed in her contract on Rousey and successfully defeated her to win the Championship.
Rousey challenged Morgan for the title at SummerSlam but she failed to capture the gold. Morgan became the first woman to pin Rousey for two times. But at the Extreme Rules pay per view event, Rousey finally defeated Morgan to capture the WWE SmackDown Women’s championship for the second time.
Ronda Rousey who is also a former WWE Raw Women’s champion recently spoke on her Youtube video game stream where she revealed that she pitched for a wild finish for her match against Liv Morgan at Extreme Rules. She also revealed why WWE said no to it. She said;
“I pitched the finish to be thumbtacks. She put down thumbtacks, powerbombs me onto the thumbtacks and as a repeat to our finish from before, I would go for an armbar on the thumbtacks and they start counting the pin,” continued Rousey.
“But I would push up onto my one shoulder into the thumbtacks to keep the armbar on. Liv would be fighting and trying not to tap and then pass out face down into the thumbtacks, having her hand there to protect her face.”
“They said we can’t do thumbtacks anymore. Legally, we can’t purposefully injure people and cut their skin. I was like, ‘How about tiny maple leaf pins?’ ‘No.’ ‘How about a punch of screws on their side?’ ‘No.’”
