Backstage News on Ronda Rousey's Commentary From Last Week's RAW
Tuesday, June 12, 2018
According to Dave Meltzer on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program, some of Ronda Rousey's awkward lines during her commentary from last week's RAW for the non-title match between Natalya and RAW Women's Champion Nia Jax were scripted.
One of the lines in question was when Michael Cole told Ronda Rousey that Nia Jax was saying that she was "ripe for the picking." Rousey responded with, "Ripe for the picking is something only my husband calls me." The line came off strange the first time she said it but then the line was repeated after a commercial break.
Meltzer noted that some people within WWE believe that it was a bad call to put Rousey in a place like that with such a scripted line. Rousey clearly did not feel comfortable with the line as she came off standoffish.
