  • Ronda Rousey simply wants to move on from the Liv Morgan storyline
  • The outcome of WWE Extreme Rules was the ideal one despite some fans not liking it
  • Rousey turning heel is exactly what SmackDown needs for the women's roster

New SmackDown Women's Champion Ronda Rousey is back to being a heel on WWE programming after defeating Liv Morgan at Extreme Rules and she is certainly enjoying it.

During one of her recent YouTube gaming streams, Rousey read out a comment about Morgan's fans still reeling from her loss at Extreme Rules, though she quickly gave them some form of consolation.

"Well, she got to win a lot, okay? Jesus, guys," Rousey said.

"It was kind of handy that there was a broken table right there that I could grab and grind into her neck. But yeah, apparently, she's into that kind of thing," she jokingly added about the finish to their match at the pay-per-view.

Many have been airing out their grievances about Morgan getting a short reign with the title since the fans have been wanting her to have a lengthy hold atop the SmackDown women's roster.

However, an almost equal number of fans believed it was time for Morgan to drop the title at Extreme Rules since having Rousey being a full-fledged heel once again made all the sense in the world for her character.

In the ending sequence of the match, Rousey had locked Morgan into a variation of a triangle choke with the assist of a broken table and the referee manning the match called for the bell as the latter was not willing to tap out at all despite her losing consciousness while smiling.

It was a win-win situation for both performers as it reestablished Rousey as a no-nonsense performer inside the ring while Morgan refusing to tap out made her look really strong in storyline.

Following the match, Morgan hinted at a character change after losing the title that she so desperately craved, which could have her turn heel as well.

Rousey as a heel just fits her character and when asked on last week's episode of SmackDown about issuing an open challenge for her title similar to her previous run, the former UFC women's bantamweight declared that the fans do not deserve such an honor.

"I issue open challenges to prove I'm the best, not to entertain the WWE Universe, I owe them nothing. I gave them everything I had and I got nothing, but hate for it... They don't want the best to win. They want their favorites to win," she mentioned.

Rousey fully embracing the heel persona is exactly what the women's division needs right now to help re-establish the division that is still reeling from the effects of having Sasha Banks and Naomi on the sidelines.

A rematch with Morgan could still be possible down the line, but WWE fans are always looking for the next performer to shine.

With Rousey atop the division, it could set up for the return of Charlotte Flair sometime soon.
