Ronda Rousey has been slapped with a 30-day suspension from WWE. Rousey, the WWE superstar dubbed “The baddest woman on the planet,” launched an extraordinary “Attack” during Monday’s episode of “WWE Raw.”.
An industry term meaning “Scripted,” the segment made for compelling viewing as Rousey judo-threw her former mentor Kurt Angle to the floor and beat him with a briefcase by the turnbuckle.
She later power-slammed the WWE women’s champion Alexa Bliss through a table.
The motive for Rousey’s attack is clear: Bliss interrupted her Money in the Bank match against Nia Jax on Sunday.
Bliss smacked Rousey in the back with a briefcase, beat Jax, and lifted the women’s championship title, one she wanted to celebrate during a promo on “Raw” the next day.
Angle, the general manager of “Raw,” chided Rousey for her actions after the episode and suspended her for 30 days.
He then tweeted that a career in sports entertainment may not be suitable for Rousey after all.
Rousey’s suspension means she will be unable to compete at the next WWE pay-per-view show on July 15, Extreme Rules, at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh.
