So much for that. One of the biggest WWE stories of the year so far has been the signing of Ronda Rousey. She’s become one of the top celebrity signings in WWE in a very long time and she’s already scheduled to make her debut at “Wrestlemania XXXIV”. In theory that should mean several appearances on “Monday Night Raw”, but not so fast as it turns out.
Here’s what the fans got instead:
According to Wrestlinginc.com, Rousey has been pulled from the next two episodes of “Raw”, meaning she is only scheduled to appear on the go home show on April 2. This goes against WWE’s previous advertising. Rousey was scheduled to appear on last night’s show as well, but was only featured in a recap video and didn’t make a live appearance.
Opinion: I’m really not sure about this and it’s making me nervous about the match. With Brock Lesnar not showing up on “Monday Night Raw” either, some of the most important names aren’t appearing in the final few episodes as we move towards “Wrestlemania”. I really don’t get the thinking here and it’s not the best way to build up such an important show. If nothing else, don’t tell the fans who bought tickets that she’s going to be there and then screw them over.
Instead of what they should have gotten:
