Ronda Rousey Confirms WWE Banned Iconic Weapon WWE

Ronda Rousey has revealed that WWE turned down her pitch for the finish for her SmackDown Women’s Championship bout at Extreme Rules.

At the October 8 premium live event, Rousey defeated Liv Morgan via submission in their extreme rules bout to win the SmackDown Women’s Title.

Speaking on her YouTube channel, Rousey noted that she pitched a thumbtacks spot for the bout. Noting that she was told that WWE stars cannot use thumbtacks as weapons anymore, Rousey said:

“I pitched the finish to be on thumbtacks. She would put down the thumbtacks and powerbomb me on the thumbtacks and then as a repeat of our finish before, I would go for the armbar on the thumbtacks and they would start counting the pin.

“Then I would have to push up to my one shoulder. Like into the thumbtacks to keep the armbar… Liv would be like bite her hand, trying not to tap out and pass out face down into the thumbtacks and have her hand protect the face.

“They said we can’t use thumbtacks anymore. That legally we can’t like purposefully, like, injure people, like, cut through skin and stuff. I don’t know.”

Following Liv Morgan’s title loss, the star teased a dark character change. Morgan recently made her first public appearance following Extreme Rules, reuniting with a released WWE star at the movie premiere for Halloween Ends.
