'18-'19 POTY, 1st Ballot HOFer
Too soon to turn Rousey heel? Cuz the only way this makes sense to me is a DQ win by Jax, when Rousey loses it and refuses to release a hold or something along those lines.
Maybe even the involvement of Paul Heyman as well as her advocate. It'd be a natural fit if not a bit obvious but again this is all too soon.
The problem I see with your scenario is, unless I’m totally out of touch (which is possible), is that the fans seem to love Rousey and really don’t give a shit about Jax. Rousey getting DQed for breaking Jax’s arm might just get her over even more. And then you add to it Heyman, who is the most adept person at getting somebody over as a heel...but the adult fanbase loves the guy. The only thing I can see happening if they try this is that Ronda would lose the “little girl” fan base while hooking in the adults even more. Because the only way to truly heel Rousey is to bring in a very strong female face that the people love and have Ronda totally go all bitchfit on her. Remember how Ronda came to UFC and was loved and adored until she did Ultimate Fighter? Well, her natural heel tendencies came out because Miesha Tate was so good at being the sympathetic babyface and the fans just loved her. I know Jax can’t pull that out of Ronda in WWE, and I highly doubt Charlotte can either. But at some point she has to turn heel because she is great at it and idolized Piper so much that it’s just a natural thing to do.
