This history Friday on” WWE SmackDown,” Ronda Rousey ditched a bag full of cash in the ring in response to being fined, a move that incontinently took WWE suckers down memory lane to a analogous moment involving Becky Lynch from a many times agone
. In the lead- up to her match against Shayna Baszler at WrestleMania 36, Lynch would respond to a vicious confidentially attack from the MMA fighter- turned- wrestler by evacuating a bag full of cash in the ring, saying that she was paying a preemptive forfeiture for what she had planned to do to Baszler.
pWhile the two gestures of plutocrat- hurling are not exactly the same, Lynch putatively took Rousey’s act last Friday as an ode to what she did on the February 16, 2020 edition of” WWE Raw.” In response to a addict on Twitter who drew parallels between the two parts, Lynch wrote on Twitter” Ronnie( heart emoji) s The Man.”
It’s extensively believed that Rouseyvs. Lynch will be one of the marquee matches at coming time’s WrestleMania 39. before this time, Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer reported that WWE had decided against the match for WrestleMania 38, concluding rather to make up expectation for their long- awaited clash a time latterly.
In the meantime, while Lynch is presently sidelined with a shoulder injury, Rousey remains bogged in an intriguing three- way dynamic with” SmackDown” Women’s Champion Liv Morgan and Rousey’s real- life friend, Baszler. This history Friday, despite being suspended in plot, Rousey showed up on” SmackDown” during the time distributed for the contract signing member between Morgan and Baszler, and after paying her fine, Rousey would hang to injure another functionary at ringside. When brazened by Baszler after the member, Rousey could be heard telling Baszler” You used to be a killer.” Baszler would go on to virulently target Morgan’s arm( injured in plot by Rousey at WWE SummerSlam) during the contract signing before Morgan managed to put her through a table.
Despite the awkward run- in between Baszler and Rousey, they actually teamed up at brace of WWE live events over the weekend in Salisbury, MD, and Atlantic City, NJ. According to PWInsider, Baszler and Rousey embraced for a big clinch after defeating Aliyah and Raquel Rodriguez both Saturday and Sunday. It would appear that WWE plans to keep Rousey involved in the plot ahead of the Baszlervs. Morgan match at Clash at the Castle on September 3.
If Rouseyvs. Lynch does go down coming April, one might anticipate further kayfabe forfeitures being assessed on the two women. In the lead- up to their three- way match at WrestleMania 35, which also involved Charlotte Flair, both Rousey and Lynch were chastened at colorful points on WWE TV. Lynch indeed offered to pay Rousey’s fine when the ultimate was punished for attacking a bunch of officers.
