This past Friday on October 17th 2014 UFC battemweight champion Ronda Rousey attended the PWG (pro wrestling Guerrilla) event in Reseda California with fellow training partners and UFC fighters Shayna Baszler and Jessamyn Duke. Rousey had to leave the event early since she had training in the morning the next day as she preps for her title defense in January. However the champ had some fun before jetting out. The “rowdy” one got involved in one of the matches directly from where she was sitting in the front row. She was prompted by one of the wrestlers to chop his opponents chest in Ric Flair fashion and Rousey did just that which led to cheers and woos from the crowd.

Man oh man what I would’ve given to see that happen. Kudos to the wrestlers of PWG for getting the crowd involved and putting on a show all on their own.
Things like this really really make me want a “4Horsewomen” invasion in the WWE: I know without a shadow of a doubt it would be “best for business” I guess only time will tell
It is being reported via Eonline that Total Divas is indeed getting picked up for a 4th season. The news doesn’t stop there though. The show will have two brand new cast members. Who are they you ask? Well…… The two new additions to the show will be none other then Alicia Fox & Paige. That would explain why WWE has paired them up in recent weeks.
Regarding this announcement I personally have mixed emotions. I’m happy because I adore both Alicia and Paige and I think their personalities and stories outside of the ring will definitely add to the show. Not to mention it’ll draw a bigger crowd. On the other hand I’m a bit hesitant to get excited since Vince McMahon has said he doesn’t want anyone on the show to hold the divas title because of TD being pre tapped and the confusion it may cause. Which means if this is true we know that AJ Lee won’t be loosing the title anytime soon and that truly takes away the importance of the title. I have heard they’re trying to come up with a solution to that problem though so let’s hope for the best.
As far as the new cast members go I always thought Fox would’ve been a logical choice. It’ll be exciting to see if her relationship with former IC champion Bad news Barrett will be revealed or if her sister who formally worked under the name Calee Turner in developmental before being let go by WWE will make appearances on the show.
As for Paige most of her fans are confused to why she’s joining the show since she was coined as “the anti diva” and just a little while ago Paige sent out this tweet & it’s clear she’s referring to the show https://twitter.com/realpaigewwe/status/524283366997106689
Like I mentioned above Paige’s life outside of WWE is enough to draw viewers and it’ll be interesting to see her interacting with her family in England (who if you didn’t know have their own wrestling company back home) it’ll be interesting to see if the viewership goes up with the UK audience.
All these questions and theories will soon have answers because season 4 kicks off on January 4th 2015
So how do you guys feel about the news? Are you excited? Are you mad. Let us know by sounding off in the comments.
