Whatever they’re going to do, they need to do it carefully. Rousey isn’t something that comes along every day and there’s no reason to waste her by treating her like any given wrestler. She’s a proven star and someone who could be a special attraction. Don’t waste her in nothing matches on Raw but rather bring her along slowly to build herself up.

You can’t do the same thing she did in the UFC, at least not in her bigger matches, but doing something once in awhile would be fine. Let her look dominant at first to show that she can do it in WWE as well but then show that the top stars of the division are indeed a match for her.

Having Rousey wrestle like any other woman would completely miss the point, just like when HHH was having regular matches with Brock Lesnar and going toe to toe with him. Any villain could do that but Lesnar, just like Rousey here, isn’t like everyone else. The only thing that really matters with her is the presentation, as WWE could blow it in a heartbeat and that’s one of the worst things they could do.

There's an element of "be careful what you wish for..." in Ronda's finally being part of the WWE and on a "full time" basis.

While at the start, that probably means she is "full-time" on training, if they start using her like Brock, sparingly then that can cause friction with the other women, who are just as important to making it work.

It's interesting that there have been some, seemingly worked but you never quite know negative tweets from Nia and an interview from Sasha that if legit can only bring heat on her. Indeed, it could be seen that Nia's walkout was linked to this too - if she heard from Dwayne it was on, then she might have asked herself "why bother?".

It's smart in a way because Ronda IS going to cause problems with all the women who got WWE to this point and each of them is going to want to put "their case" to be the one to face her in that first match. Stephanie having it in any way, even to hide limitations is a mistake. That first match needs to be the biggest womens match in WWE history.

I would do it like the Jericho/Angle/Benoit match - where BOTH Women's titles are on the line in successive falls. Your participants would be Charlotte, Asuka, Alexa and Ronda.

Have Asuka win a fall and Ronda win one, setting the arc for the next year that is leading to them facing off title for title (in the Mania main event) harsh perhaps on Carmella but then she can cash in on Ronda, lose but she lost to Ronda... so it won't kill her.

If Ronda has the SD belt, then it sets up matches with Natalya, Becky, Carmella and Naomi over the next year... if they move some folks around then those can change, but a run with Becky and Natalya, both of who are VERY experienced and have some training knowledge will only help Ronda learn. Carmella is green herself, but she's there to be fed to Ronda in reality... it's clear Asuka and Ronda are the dream ticket.

Nearer Mania, have her go into a one-on-one with Charlotte to get her ready for Asuka.

It's perhaps harshest on Alexa, who hasn't done much wrong but is now "out of the picture" realistically... if Ronda doesn't take her title, Asuka will... and she won't get it back from either.

They MUST avoid the mixed tag... be it Rocky or Braun or whoever, Trips and Steph will damage her rather than build her up and it'll do no favors for Strowman. R

Remember Ronda came off TWO big UFC losses, so she has to be booked like a beast out the gate, beating credible opponents... not Steph...and before you say "what if she pins Hunter..." no, just no.

Rousey should be able to work whatever schedule she wants. If that means we see her at the big four pay-per-views then so be it. No matter how much her star has diminished over the last couple of years, she's a bigger commodity than anyone currently signed to a WWE contract. Given how much notoriety she brings in with her, the Women of the WWE should be begging to be squashed by Rousey. Once the Women superstars get on that level of popularity, then they can start walking around pointing at Wrestlemania signs without actually doing anything.

Rousey brings in eyes, not only for the Women but for the WWE as a brand. Hopefully they utilize her in a big match up. Given her little bit of training, she can likely be put in a singles match and do ok against someone like Asuka or Charlotte who are veterans at making their opponents look good. I'd much prefer they keep Asuka and Rousey away from one another for an entire year while building towards a mega showdown in the main event of Wrestlemania 35. If anything, let Rousey completely steamroll straight through Alexa Bliss at Wrestlemania to establish her dominance.

In all honesty, it really doesn't matter who she faces at Wrestlemania, her image belongs right next to Reigns and Lesnar on that ppv poster and any poster she wants until it's proven she isn't a draw. The WWE is rolling out the red carpet for Rousey and rightfully so. I just hope they don't screw this one up like they have so many in the past.
