Would love to see it happen. As a babyface I think she’s too bland and smiley and her promos come across as very scripted, she only comes across as natural when she’s doing her killer stare and snapping peoples arms.

I think she’d be money as a heel she’d basically be a female Lesnar.

Rousey was easily the best part of Raw this week. She cut a promo the way a good 'tweener' ought to cut a promo. She claimed she was better than everyone, she challenged anyone to prove her wrong, she backed it up. Her promo had heat behind it, and looked all the better because you could see the bruises all over her body, and TBH it looks like she had someone give her a few chops on the chest before she came out too. Never seen it done before and it helped her (even more to) look like she had been through hell.

I think she's going to embrace that some people cheer me some people boo me role even more and better than either Cena or Reigns did. I'm sure she'll get boos every now and again but I think far more often than not she's gonna get cheered for going this route. She may get booked babyface throughout, but she can elicit boos quite easily by playing the dominant heel that can back up their words, but then temper it by singling out certain types of heelish behaviors in others swaying her back to the babyface side.

Gotta admit at this point I'm truly becoming a mark. I've liked her well enough while she was in MMA, and I loved that she was coming to WWE because I knew she'd make a serious impact all across the board, and she has done just that, but I wasn't sure I was going to like her character, or her booking, and so far she is proving to be better at adapting to and excelling at wrestling than even Angle.

I just hope she doesn't self-destruct now.

She lives the Cena/Reigns gimmick where she gets people pissed at her at the same time she makes people cheer her, and unlike Cena and Reigns where it was mostly the sheep who cheered and the hardcore fans that booed, she's more of an ideology kind of chick, where she legitimately pisses off hardcore and casual fans alike and endears herself to other fans who also fall into the hardcore and casual fan categories.

After the beatdown she took at survivor series followed by her promo and booking last night, I'm fully on board with her, and I think she not only CAN be the face of the company I think she SHOULD be the face of the company. 

Hogan, Savage, Hitman, Austin, Rock, Triple H, Cena, Reigns, Rousey.

She should turn it around, given that she's against Nia Jax, and get cheered again. She just needs to stop taking cheap shots at Becky. Nobody will get cheered when they line up against Becky.

Quote It was speculated on Wrestling Observer Radio that based on current happenings on TV, Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair will likely be doing something at Royal Rumble with Becky Lynch vs. Rousey being saved for WrestleMania. Meltzer added that Rousey's opponent in order are supposed to be Nia Jax, then Flair and finally Lynch.
 
Dunno why people expected her to turn on Raw when it would have been wasted. Her next opponent is Nia Jax who's sloppy and fans resent for injurying half a dozen of the roster, so Ronda wouldn't get booed against her.
 
She's going to have to beat Charlotte at Royal Rumble to look strong going in to Wrestlemania.
 
Then I would expect Becky to give Ronda her first ever loss at Wrestlemania.

So we're expecting Lynch to forfeit the title and Charlotte to win it then, right?

Otherwise I think Charlotte would much prefer to be in the Rumble.
