Ronda Rousey defeated and dominated over Charlotte Flair in a marvelous SmackDown Women’s Championship match with the ‘I Quit’ stipulation at WrestleMania Backlash. The Baddest Woman on the Planet showed a lot of deduction for the championship and did everything she had been claiming for her match against the Queen.

Rousey becoming the Smackdown Women’s Champion was a treat for the WWE Universe and the Dunkin Donuts Arena was full of happiness seeing a new SmackDown Women’s Champion. But the question knocking in is that what’s next for the new SmackDown Women’s Champion now that she is on the top of the women’s roster?

What’s next for Ronda Rousey?

Surprisingly, Rousey’s challenge was accepted buly Raquel Rodriguez who has been a part of only one match before her SmackDown Women’s Championship opportunity. Rodriguez and Rousey featured in a great match but in the end, it was the Baddest Woman on the Planet who defeated the young talent to retain her championship.

Rousey might be looking for a long term challenger after her successful title defense on SmackDown and an established star could be one of the best options to step up as the Challenger. Former SmackDown Women’s Champion, Bayley, who has not been seen in WWE for a long time now could return to action and challenge the new champion with an interesting rivalry headling over to Money in the Bank and SummerSlam 2022.
