During a Gauntlet Match on SmackDown this week for deciding the number one contender for Smackdown Women’s Championship, Raquel Rodriguez prevailed over five other female competitors.
When it appeared that she had earned her title shot, Ronda Rousey suddenly appeared and declared that she needed to overcome Shayna Baszler before Rodriguez could receive her championship shot.
Baszler wasted no time and targeted Raquel’s already injured arm. However, she was defeated by a badly injured Rodriguez after a swift rollup.
The events that took place that evening left Rousey and Baszler in a state of total anguish. Ronda Rousey cited the referee’s rapid count as the reason Raquel Rodriguez won the Gauntlet Match.
“My response? Can I just say that was utter Bullshit? The ref counted faster than I can really imagine,” explained Rousey.
She was cut off by Baszler, who said that Raquel had just one strong arm and had no chances against the present SmackDown Women’s Champion.
“She only has one arm. With only one arm, how are you going to fight Ronda Rousey? With that one good arm shoved all the way up her … she’ll look really stupid.”

Next week on WWE SmackDown, Ronda Rousey will square off against Raquel Rodriguez.
The Baddest Woman on the Planet and The Queen of Spades have been violently attacking the former NXT superstar Rodriguez for weeks.
But Rodriguez would finally get her chance to make amends with her torturer in a major title fight on WWE SmackDown the coming week.
Raquel Rodriguez, particularly her arm, has been the focus of Ronda Rousey and Baszler attacks over the past few weeks, causing extreme pain for her.
It will be intriguing to see if Ronda and her evil sidekick can be defeated by the incredibly tough Rodriguez.
