WWE superstar and new SmackDown women’s champion Ronda Rousey spoke about her Extreme Rules victory over Liv Morgan on the latest edition of her Youtube video game stream, where the Baddest Woman On the Planet reveals that she pitched thumbtacks for the matchup, but WWE denied her due to the level of violence. Highlights are below.
What she pitched for the match ending:
“I pitched the finish to be thumbtacks. She put down thumbtacks, powerbombs me onto the thumbtacks and as a repeat to our finish from before, I would go for an armbar on the thumbtacks and they start counting the pin, but I would push up onto my one shoulder into the thumbtacks to keep the armbar on. Liv would be fighting and trying not to tap and then pass out face down into the thumbtacks, having her hand there to protect her face.”
Why WWE said no:
“They said we can’t do thumbtacks anymore. Legally, we can’t purposefully injure people and cut their skin. I was like, ‘How about tiny maple leaf pins?’ ‘No.’ ‘How about a punch of screws on their side?’ ‘No.'”
