The moment 'The Queen' walked away from WWE, 'Rowdy' became the iconic face of the company and snatched the title from Liv Morgan's hands. Her reign ended quite sensationally in the last episode of SmackDown of 2022, when she was surprised by the sensational return of Charlotte.
She the latter asked for and obtained an immediate title shot by defeating Ronda in just 41 seconds. In the latest edition of the 'Drive Thru' podcast, former WWE manager Jim Cornette stated that Ronda Rousey is highly unlikely to be seen in AEW in the future.
Jim Cornette on Ronda Rousey
“I don't think Ronda Rousey will ever go to All Elite Wrestling and there are a number of reasons that support my thesis. Even if she were to leave WWE one day, I don't think she would land in AEW” – said Jim Cornette.
“Even if Tony Khan offers her $10 million a year, Ronda doesn't seem that attached to wrestling to me. I don't think her choice would be influenced by money. For her, wrestling is a part-time activity and she has no plans to stay away from the family” - he added.
Jim also spoke about CM Punk's breakup with AEW: “That fight after All Out confirmed CM Punk's rebellious nature, as well as put AEW in an awkward position. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that the programming would have been totally different if Punk hadn't acted that way.
His suspension has turned the tables and forced Tony Khan to revise his plans. All Elite Wrestling had to make a number of adjustments. In my view, they're not doing badly." Speaking on her YouTube stream, the former champion revealed her next major goal for the company: "I don't know guys, I'm tired of Charlotte [Flair].
I'm tired of that title. I already did it you know. I am thinking about taking over the [Women's] tag division." WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle sat down with Instinct Culture to discuss a wide variety of subjects. "She did an excellent job.
The one thing Ronda didn’t do that she could and will do eventually, she never mastered the business," Kurt Angle said. "Because she wasn’t in it long enough and we had to set things in stone for Ronda. We had to give her step-by-step instructions and go over it with her for multiple days, so she would be ready for the match, so she knew everything that was gonna go on."
