"Wrap up the show by talking about a big name on the women's side all right. Let's talk kayla harrison. So as you guys know michaela fan right. I'm an olympic fan though. I feel as though she's a hero to the country for bringing home gold medal. So i'll e came out and said that kayla harrison is ronda. Rousey six point. Oh on the skills. I'm starting to see it and it was very hard to see how good kayla was early on. She just wasn't in there with opponents that could push her right. Every fighter will have planning every fire when they're forced to go to plan b. That's when you see who the grates are. And i can even remember it with george saint-pierre specifically take everybody down. Beat him up from there. And fight with matt hughes. Can't take him down kicks him in the head knocks him out leaves with his belt and all of a sudden you go wall. This guy's plan b might be better than his plan. He just doesn't know that but all of the grades have that in common kabibi big crowning moment in many ways in many ways could be crowning moment. Where we all saw is when he sends connor head over tea kettle in the boxing range. Right after conor just went thirty minutes with florida news. It was one of those things we go. This guy can do it. All i can remember randy could tour. When he got everybody's attention he was already the champion of the world but he took everybody down in pounded on them. He fights kevin randle men who took him down and randy didn't even finish the fight with us but he spun into an arm bar and he had randall men. He had the arm bar. He didn't finish the fight. But that was showing a nother element in another dimension in randy. Got a lot of credit and a lot of respect for it okay. Kayla harrison hasn't had to do that. She still has not had to do that. She is choosing to go out and some of these contests and show gains. It's just more difficult to do. She is over whelming at one hundred fifty five pounds. She's hard to get excited about only because where is she going to go. How is she going to prove this. Ufc by example doesn't have one hundred fifty five pound division at all pf l. Which does contest one hundred and fifty five pounds does not have a body enough bodies to have a we would consider an entire division one hundred fifty five pounds globally does not have a ranking because they ranked the top ten and they can't find ted contestants that can fog amir to write their names down on dot com that nobody reads anyway. None of that has kayla's fault and none of that was all these point. All these point is. This girl is better than any other girl to have done. It question is is he right. I'm starting to see it. I am starting to see it. And ronda rousey in many ways was a good arm bar a nasty competitor. Big dr but she was a media. Darling she had opportunities. That isn't something you can just go. Copy it's not something kayla can sit down study and then go emulate. It was right place right time. Once in a generation and the generation happened to be rhonda. So i say that because kayla can't punish herself she can't punish herself and be upset if she's not drawing and selling out sitting on ellen's couch moonlight in the evening over there with jimmy fallon. It's it's a different deal and it's not because she's less charismatic or did anything wrong or had different context or less opportunities. It's really not. She might have some of those things. But that's not. What this is. Rhonda right place right time so when all these talks about six point. Oh he's talking about the skills he's talking about the dominance and we are seeing improvements from kayla it kayla was never allowed to improve just hypothetical. Let's have some fun. She never was allowed to walk through the doors of att ever. She was never allowed to train. And the ever she had to go off residual effects of what she had already learned from her days as in amateur athlete through the olympics and going in competed in the may she still undefeated she still wanted to term it twice. There's nobody that could beat her and there's nobody that could win a roundabout against her and there's nobody that went the distance with her. I really believe that. I think she was just that good. I think she was that doorbell. I think she was adverse to anti contact. I think she prefers to be in a battle. She understands a point system. She understands when the lights are on gender stance competitions. She understands getting her handwriting. As some of these intangibles that you only get through a lifetime of competing. She has them. But i'm starting to see some pretty heavy hands even if she's doing them from the ground. I'm starting to hear the thud. I'm starting to see the power. I for sure him. Witnessing a confidence growth. There is stories that she used to train regularly with amanda nunez and that amanda has stopped those workouts. That amanda has stopped those workouts. Foreshadowing this being a potential future opponent. Now i'm not here to tell you what happened in the room. I wasn't there. I am here to tell you if those workouts happened. Kayla's should have one just on size size does matter and what both those girls walk around that and what they would have been at those workouts. I don't know. I am accurate when i tell you they would have been different. Amanda covers the spread all the way down to thirty five kayla harrison said in an interview that i caught at one point. I have not weighed one. Forty five since my junior year of high school. So she's a big strong gal for the division as my only point. Where does she go and wink. And she get the opportunity to prove that she is in fact six point. Oh we can't just make these things happen. We also need some information from her. Which is primarily. can you get to one. Hundred forty five pounds is that a lifestyle change physiology wise. Is this possible. Do you have a vision. And a plan or argue settling in at one fifty five and saying the whole is going to have to change for me. That's a tough plan but we have seen it before. And i'll these the one making the comparison to ronda. Rousey we sought for ronda rousey. We signed an entire division being allowed entrance and television. Time because of.

"We all want to see that. Sure we do backup. There's a story here. How did we get here. I know you're thinking that remnants seems to be like the elephant in the room. How we got here is very simple. So let's enjoy the the drama along the way which is the back and forth going on right now between the manager of engano and dana so surreal fights over the weekend. Right quick timeline. No you know what let's back up. Even further and ghana wins the championship over steep. A and gano goes to the press conference and donald says. The only thing i want is to stay busy. Where does that statement come from. And ghana was named the number one contender after. He defeated rosen stroke. Dc and steep a are already signed. But they're in the future. Now we at this point in the sport have never had a number one. Contender identified that gives to sit out and wait win. The championship match is further out. This has never happened so that forced engano to wait until the championship match. Let these to get it settled. Then you've got the recovery period for in this case was steep bay and ghana's got away then you got to have a little negotiation period and god got away. Then you have the sign in the training camp. And ghana's got away so. I fully got one in ghana was talking about. He was rewarded for his good work with the number one contender ship inadvertently. He saw it as a punishment he didn't go to go to work. No problem learning lesson. But when donald says i want to stay busy i took him at his word. I took him in his word. Because of what i just stated so starts to be some quick dialogue about john jones versus in gano. John doesn't want to do it. Okay derek lewis. Who's the top contender. Had that win. Beat a come back from behind over curtis blades or not. Derek lewis had also defeated and ghana makes all the sense right. There was a major respect being shown to john jones. Even though we'd never fought in that vision look dude. You're really good at if you wanna come up here. We'll give you the opportunity but absent that falls to derrick. Oh makes perfect sense. I've stated for you. The obvious just reminding you how we got here. Something comes out from in ghana side. That he doesn't wanna fight derrick. He's not afraid he's not scared. It's not one of those little childhood playground moments. He what he wants to john. Jones fight can't get you john jones. Don't have john jones. Have derek lewis giving you derek lewis. We don't ever get a real clear answer from the champ. Timeout in ghana. But we do hear some rumblings that he's still going to do what he can do to try to hold on and get a different match that he doesn't want derek. We're hearing that. He was going to fight derek in july. And i know what you're thinking. July's upon us. Yeah right. i'm thinking that to which tells us that didn't get done and we know that derek was at the table. I spoke to derrick. I can tell you for sure. Derek was at the table. We heard dana. Who spoke publicly. Said that's the fight to make us fight. We're going to make so we know dana is at the table. But we don't have the fight so that tells us by default that it's on francis site. I have to lay out that order or on being wrong. It wouldn't be right for me to tell you. That francis didn't want fight derek. Because i don't have evidence of that and francis has never come out and say that. And that wasn't even speculated. We got to that interpretation by default of derek's at the table dana table. We don't have a fight okay. Dana comes out and announces. It's going to be surreal versus derek. Interim championship team. Engano throws her hands up. How did we get here. And now they've they're the offended party. By the way they are the aggrieved party which is a wildly interesting. Take wildly interesting francis. Stay with me guys. It seems like everybody got what they wanted. Except now everybody's pissed right. Welcome to the world of francis doesn't wanna fight on certain dates that's true. He's admitted to that. I don't wanna fight until september. Okay this fight is going to happen sooner than september so it sounds as though you can't be in the fight we're going to hold the fight. You don't wanna fight until september. You don't have to no problem. You can have what you want i now. This is dana. I want a heavyweight title fight prior to then i am going to go get it. I'm going to go do it with these guys. It seems as though everybody's getting what they want. And the one thing that francis i believe is missing is whatever. He does next against gong or derek. Lewis is going to be much bigger. It's much bigger now now. None of this was meant to be a reward to francis but none of it was meant to be a punishment either. Dana has a job to do which is to book fights on certain dates. It is his job. Had anybody else. Done what dana did. They would view themselves as organized and they do. Dana did but for some reason. Dana coke at the garden party. Put it in this perspective k. Fighter fighter doesn't have a boss fight runs his own schedule. A disciplined fighter will write that down and honor it whether he feels like it or not. That is how he will stay. Organized fighters going to work at at three o'clock on friday fighter calls his coach now fighter lined up fighter. Wrote this down fighter plan to do it but he went a little out of order. He hasn't yet told the coach so he calls the coach on a wednesday he says. Hey three o'clock on friday. Meet me at the gym. Do emit workout coaches can't do it. For whatever reason it does not matter. i'm hurt. i'm sick. I'm taking the wife out. It's my kid's graduation. Whatever the excuse like or not if he can't show up fighter still has to do the minute workout at three o'clock on friday so he does what he calls somebody else and maybe it wasn't his first pick but he calls somebody else and he will continue making calls all the way down to a teammate. Who isn't even very good at holding minutes but he will make it happen because at three o'clock on friday that's what he has to do. It's the exact scenario that dana had to go through.
Bring Your Blog to Life with Voice with Ron Jaworski, CEO of Trinity Audio
"My guest is Ronda. Rousey the CEO of Trinity Audio Welcome. Thanks for being here. Pleasure being here thank you you for having me the trinity audio something a little different with boys than others. We've talked to on this show. Can you tell us what Trinity Audio Does and how the company all came to be so I will start like start up very gary was basically and a half years ago it was going down the elevator reading an article and and then I went to my car and to myself why. I can't Jason to an article adjusted winning. And how trinity all you started in a in the last two and a half years Started from thinking about audio but of course voice in goes out the perfect pair and perfect if a couple and we want to give the users of consume content give content greater the option to as we call it off defied you're content and they have content available whether it's an unusual way of engagement like taking on their on a web page or using your voice to activate that will give you the relevant economy. John Looking for which in Smart Speaker is the obvious one but we think that the voice revolution does not succeeds. Only in smart spirit exist everywhere. And it's ready for old contin creator and relevant full devices mobile web. Desktop doesn't really matter voices. He's everywhere yeah I mean that's definitely something. We're learning a lot on this show as a whole why do you think having a blog have an audio option matter so much criminal because he just makes sense. I like log. I'm reading your dog every time that you know I'm I'm getting injured Going over my emails. Stop doing the blogs that I like. But in some cases you know I'm driving my car in St one radio but but again breathe while driving or at least hopefully. Nobody's winning while they're driving so I can listen so it's not about like it. Why should I? It's like why shouldn't you. Why don't give your Yuzu way to engage where Joe content in any manner? Yeah I agree. I think it's good because you don't necessarily have to create another set of separate audio content. You can just whole from what you have. which makes a lot of sense exactly the and you know in our time where creating new content is expensive? And we know that the general whether you have a blog or whether you're big media company publishers struggling so give them the ability to generate more content easily cheap even maybe generate revenue out them out of it. It's the way to go. It's a win win situation for everybody. Now how does your company actually use the blog content and turn it into audio. I know that you have three options that you provide. Can you describe. Describe what they are and how they work. Basically we use a text to speech solution which is dissimilar for old manners will works in which basically what we do. We analyzed used textual park of specific log article whatnot and analyze what which one is the Textual audit than a which one is irrelevant relevant. Dan Basically we use the next engine to turn the text into audio and basically User woop rouse the page because if the puncture is working talking with us. He has a simple Java scrip- small player. It says listen to the article or any kind of writer has said that the obvious decided any takes a nuisance. Zuhdi article each worksheet mobile web mobile APP or seen Endesa of course but it's also at by the way they content a can. NB forced into his cue so it can be also explore discover on Echo Alexa. And we also offer the publisher Disability Lisa beauty throughout different APPs whittard silence defied podcast APP or whatnot so we basically look at textual. Content is the basic building block for publishers create audio presence and on top of that we are adding layer of voice a wetter. It's pushing into smart speakers way. It's basically the naval but not only also having a voice conversation over a mobile web or desktop a website. Good if necessary so I hope this like said the general for what will we award

"League. He leak replaced WB title rain. Bruno Bruno longest of the modern era, who I think that one got switched to who cares. Anyway. What was it was seeing punishment? They had replaced that, right? I believe. So most most ruled titles everyone. A flare I guess, tied with flair in John CENA. Georgia's time in the rumble. Santino Santino anyone anyone notice anything here, by the way, they like records and breaking them. It's always different people I because with, w we does is they brain things, and they went to merchandise things, and they went to sell things, and so a lot of what they do is built around. Well, how can we brand this person? How can we brand the new day? They were the longest reigning raw takes him champions, or whatever. And they're probably gonna win the smackdown take titles more times use os. I believe the record now not even sure. But the point is everybody's different because they want something for everybody, who's the person that beat Ronda Rousey, Becky Lynch, who's the first woman to me of it. Wrestlemainia. Becky run in Charlotte. Okay. So at the end of the day they want Charlotte to hold the women's title. Sixteen times. Okay. Why? Because they wanna brand her as a sixteen time, women's champion, just like they, Brandon Rick flair the same way, this is not about does she. Serve it. Okay. The story that they want to tell forget who deserves it. Who's a heart would have forget it the story, they want to tell is Rick flair and his daughter. Both were sixteen time champions in a made up sport. That's it. Yeah, you could say, well, my favorite is Oscar, I want her to be a sixteen time champion.

That is loyal to the company and has been there for a long time. They're gonna give everybody something special even if it's something ridiculous. Like I mean, for crying out loud. Some of the records that they had I mean for a while there before Charlotte had a bunch of numbers. It was like she's the only woman never defeated on pay per view. But she loses on TV all the time. It's like that was. A record day came up with for her at the time now they've got a better one. So it's just what they do. It's not the end of the world. It's, it's because you have courses because she's flares daughter stats the story. They wanna tell they don't want to tell the story that Rick flair is sixteen time champion and guess what someone who has no relation to of any sort. Becky lynch. Also, as a sixteen time champion, that's not the story. They wanted tell for branding purposes. That's it. That's the story. They like creating history. Who's like when reindeer and became the youngest heavyweight champ, there's another one. They want deal the rock being the youngest heavyweight champion. They wanted to make sure to wipe out, you know, AJ lease record, so have Nikki hold it the whole time. It's just that's they whereas other places, kind of like you create history.

"Morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Rachel Martin on Sunday. Pro wrestling, we'll see something they have never seen before WWE's main event for wrestlemainia will feature all female wrestlers, Ronda Rousey, Charlotte. Claire and Becky Lynn. The main Vanco wrestlemainia I'm going to. The other day to the mall. Women have never taken billing in the thirty four year history of wrestlemanias. So this is a big deal. Why did it take so long though, I asked David shoemaker author and host of the ringers wrestling podcast, the masked man show for on tencent purposes. This is pro wrestling Super Bowl released WWE the biggest company in America's appro wrestling Super Bowl. It's the it's the night win the biggest stars in the company and some of the biggest stars from years past come and do fake battle for everybody. Join. So this is this is the main event of the year and for the first time women who are these female wrestlers in the larger WWE fan base. I mean are they big stars in their own, right? Not just decide to. Oh. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, there's sort of two kinds of stars in this match and two kinds of of wrestling stars overall. There's like free agents, and there's homegrown talent. Right. And Ronda Rousey, who is a former UFC longtime champion superstar in the real sports. You know in the real sport of cage fighting was the biggest free agent they could have possibly signed. She has the biggest crossover appeal of anybody probably on the roster unless it's Brock listener, another UFC fighter. But then on the other side, you have Becky Lynch who is maybe something if there's anything more powerful more potent than character like Ronda Rousey, it's it's what Becky Lynch issues, an organic megastar and over the past nine months exploded into just literally the biggest star in WWE, which is maybe the first time ever that you could. Say that about a female wrestler. So why is this happening now? I mean, why has Vince McMahon? The owner legendary even perhaps to some notorious owner of WWE decided that this is the year to headline women because well, I mean, it's been going on for a few years. This this kind of idea called the divas revolution. It was. I think it started February twenty fifteen there was one very brief very inconsequential women's match on this entire three plus our show, and it or Ganic led to this. You know, a Twitter hashtag, which is give divas a chance divas with a used to call all the women wrestlers, and and WWE to their great credit and even despite kind of dragging their feet on women's wrestling for a long time. They heard that hashtag they heard the clarion call and they and they heard the market responding. Exactly. That's exactly right. But then over the past four years they've made the steady progression. They've they've headline pay per view. I think I believe one pay per view in the past. And there is no separately an all women's. Pay per view. But the headline wrestlemainia is it's really the biggest honor in the company can provide you even even if there's three equal matches that are all at the top of the car at everybody's faces are the same size on the poster whatever it it matters to go on last David shoemaker is the host of the ringers podcast. The masked man show wrestlemainia is the Sunday. Thanks so much, David. Appreciate it. Thank you so much for having me. I'm setting my DVR, Steve you're gonna watch wrestlemainia.

Maybe a special guest analyst, commentator, whatever or Brock lesser, who's more likely to be on the first FOX broadcast. I will say Brock only because.

And I'll ask you this. What is Ronda Rousey is legacy on the women's division? If the if wrestlemanias it like that's the end of her in in ring in you know, in three or four years in doctorinal hall of fame, and that's it. I mean, that's the extreme end of the spectrum of possibilities for her. But it is a possibility. Sure. Yeah. I think it's it should be what could have been because I think she's been fantastic. Just you. They always like to talk about how quickly crew angle adapter nobody's adapted to wrestling quicker. Well, Ronda Rousey is right there. I don't care for mattress or heavily core court choreographed. She's just done amazing work. And yeah, there's quirkiness with run the Mike and things of that nature. But she has been terrific. It's been I think a bit underwhelming in terms of the impact that she's had as for bringing in a new audience and things of that nature. But I I don't know that we'd be seeing the women headlining wrestlemainia this year. Ronda Rousey, wasn't in that match. And so I think that that is something that that that definitely counts for something. But yeah, I think she has been spectacular. I can't say enough good things about Rhonda's work in rang and just how quickly she's adapted. You said that you don't think the women would be made eventing. I think there's a chance they could be made inventing restaurant. I think Charlotte and Becky would have been enough given the lineup that we look at for competing matches. I mean, I'd love to see data bride and Kofi Kingston close out wrestlemanias Kofi winning. I think if you're right. And I at the end of the way Keller hotline last night for VIP members. I you know, I talked about what I would do with Kofi and how I feel about him right now as as. As a potential title holder. And and where they can go with him. I think symbolically having Kofi standing in the ring. Ted wrestlemanias fiberglass would be great. But it's not the year for that. Because of the story there toiling women, but that said if Rhonda weren't in this match Seth Leser Seth winning. Yeah. That could Kofi winning that could. But why not Charlotte versus Becky? I mean, Charlotte the OPEC is a face. I I would have to me that absolutely could have been not just in my mind. Ideally, how they promote them. But just realistically, Vincent, man. Could look at that lineup ago. Yeah. Let's which Becky on top. I actually think without Ronda Rousey because of how good Charlotte is and the year that Becky had which was not by the way dependent on Ronda Rousey being around. She could have had a breakout your without that, I think it could have realistically been the year the co because they'd want to do it. Anyway, you know with a women's room shin and all that and it was brought up by John Oliver. They have made progress in this regard. I I think it's. There's a decent chance shell it. Becky would have headlined me. I can't rule it out. I everything would have been different creatively. And so it's hard to say it may have been there in part because they like said they wanted it to be there. They want that milestone moment. But I I mean, I don't like right now to me even with the big angle on Monday Kofi, and Brian does feel hotter to me personally..
Women to close out WrestleMania for first time
"WWE is going to make a little history with wrestlemainia this go around at outta MetLife. Big. It's a big deal. It's a huge deal for the first time ever. It's an all woman main event, it's a three way match, you know, with Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey, whose champion were raw women's champions around the rousing shallow flair and Becky Lynch does the freeway match. It would be the main event. Some would call it the final match while from us. Call the main event Seles match. Yeah. So. You know, some folks thought maybe Brock listener. And Seth Rollins will be the main event, it's not universal title. This is for the raw women's championship. And you know. It says a huge deal. This is great not just for the business. It's just for the restaurant business, but it's great for women's wrestling because women's wrestling over the past several years has come such a long way, not just from WWE other companies to and the women aren't just looked at as as it used to be years ago. When it just I candy, he's a legitimate athletes. These are legitimate performance legitimate WB superstars, and these three ladies Shala flare rows and Becky alleged. They're gonna tear it down. It's going to be great. It's going to be great. And to do it at MetLife. Another just we're wrestlemanias. Always at these big big stadiums. Just like the SuperBowl, isn't pack them. Okay. You're gonna have close to eighty thousand people. Okay. At wrestlemainia people from all over WorldCom. And that just makes me so proud like as a former wrestler, a former wrestling broadcaster. You know, how many years it's taken? But it's finally like I was saying during the break to you and Andrew bogusch. Not really awesome. How so many worldwide mainstream sports verticals in sports, broadcasts companies, and and worldwide entertainment companies supporting with w w pro wrestling does on their websites on TV just a little while move says, you know, you're going to have Roman reigns. And all ladies the ladies in the main advantages named ought to be a sports center on ESPN on TV. I mean, so and and they're going to be doing suffered ESPN they did stuff last year too. So I'm just saying I just so it's just so refreshing that it's the the entertainment value is respected by the sports world. And the athleticism is is respected by the bulk of the sports world. So, but this is a huge thing. I mean, this is huge. And it's it's happy for I don't be rude. I'm happy for Charlotte flair and Becky Lynch of these ladies they paid their dues a lot of years. Lot of skin in the game. A lot of. A years. Lots of years, okay before WWE, Rhonda Rousey, she's new to the game. She'd been paid dues and the wrestling business. Great great MMA. She's a UFC hall of Famer. She's a amazing grand champion judoka. Which is a a junior champion. So amazing athlete and she brings massive stop power. But I'm old school wrestling traditionalists, and those two other ladies paid a lot of dues flair and Lynch, but Ronda Rousey is helping draw draw the helps draw the main event, obviously because I'm a stop out. Yes, she does. But not as popular as the other two amongst wrestling fans. No rescue domino. You said and you're right. And the reason is because bring name power put the wrestling fan or fans of Becky Lynn me the reason is because of respect. Yeah. Because they know like I just said the wrestling fan knows that those ladies paid a lot of deuce and Rhonda hasn't. But that's not the main reason she she's her character, which is good. They have for doing this more out of health the fans and a bunch of nerds in their basement. She's going that route which is called cheap. It's easy to do that works. It's fine. So that's helping hurt that helps her as a heel as a bad guy dead girl, get that heat. But the fans also know when she talks on a Mike is just terrible is no juicy. There's no other way to put. She's yes. I'm sorry. She's great, and my disrespecting handing she's done athletically, or what she means in for the WWE attached. But I mean, I just look at I look at the other two is just better overall. When you put everything in place. I, you know, I look at them as better overall women rested. And I just want to say this to like anybody who thinks wrassling. I listen, you watch any stuff leading up to the smack just for example, what Shala flare Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey, go on YouTube goal. WBZ's website watch the physicality that's happening with these ladies. Yeah. Okay. Watchhouse fifties kicks and punches are that will watch. And so anybody who thinks any different is a dumb ass. It just doesn't stand and they have this archaic thinking, and it's it's sad because that's kind of like uncalled Alec. It's like wrestling's embraced now. It's it's sitting here on a national sports radio show. And we're talking about this. You'll have you'll have broadcasters here on CBS sports radio. Talk about wrestlemanias that leads to on WFAN here. Locally to know wherever you might anywhere anywhere. You live right, right. Talking about this. Because it like I said they're fixing to be on ESPN. Right. It's it's clearly it's clearly more mainstream and has got more mainstream as we've gone along here. And I, you know, put all that, you know, everything you said is true TASR. I just think you look at the growth of the women are the women's wrestler. The woman wrestler in professional wrestling is just remarkable. Because you mentioned in terms of now, I remember the days of sable, right? And not even not even go back where you know, you mentioned candy and everything was calling that stuff. You know that birthday. We'll see. So. So it's so significantly different the way that they're treated and appreciated now much significant. Yeah. And they've earned it. I mean, and they do a great job. I mean, we've interviewed you know, we interviewed Charlotte all week. That's right special winter, she was doing stuff a special, which is which the WWE designate job their outreach into the communities, and helping those that need it, and she talked about that. And and we know how big of a star Becky Lynch's and Ronda Rousey, she's got some work to do in terms of. I don't know if it's ever gonna get there with her on the Mike, but we know how great of a of a physical specimen. Well, then the thing is I do think like just a my opinion that I think they if if if if something McConnell McGregor happens would w w at wrestlemania guy the table set here, you get this main event here like we said earlier, I talked about this earlier. And I'll talk about more on my podcasts on the tashaun get deeper in the woods on the wrestling. But the thing is like you got you got one of the girls listing Becky Lynch and who's probably gonna win the championship. At wrestlemainia, and for those that don't know harmonica. Her name is she's the man so speculates as you know, Muslim. She's the man that's like the gimmick. And 'cause she's the man, but she's a woman. But it's it's just a gimmick. Right. But anyway, she's from Ireland. Okay. We know Conor McGregor is from Ireland. We know Rhonda rows economy McGregor offer ends. I could see something happened where I would strongly predict if f Conor McGregor gets involved. You know, and everybody's gonna hack this for me on this radio station. Just throw some credit over here to task. I would think that Conor McGregor helps Becky somehow some way maybe if he's involved win the match that'd be cool and win the championship. Because then they could go down the road where Rhonda's pissed at McGregor, and they could do something potentially further down the

I'm going to say one two three play. And there will be a two minutes. Two hours woman at five seconds one two three play as Tommy dreamer goes into the corner. And s g g we were watching the rumble in we're talking about Sasha banks and Ronda Rousey, so I am going. To go with not surprisingly, Ronda Rousey, this just does not end here. This is one year since Rhonda Rowzee, Cantu, the WWE. And I think they will put on a great match as I spoke about earlier. But I just don't see this being the match that Rhonda Rowzee loses. I wouldn't understand it. And I imagine that Ronda Rousey headlines this year's wrestlemainia in some sort of title defense as she g what say you. I a half the disagree. And I want to go at my heart on this one. I'm going to say Sasha. Windsor v we miss championship. She defeats. Rhonda, see, I like that you're at least acknowledging that you're going with your heart because that is the only reasonable. I cannot see a world as she g.

Jim is not going to win this rubble. Ronda, listen, she's put on some incredible matches since she's been here. But if you if you seen the the few times that she's been made up motorable, it's been at the hand of a select few group of women there was Charlotte.

"I had this. I have this is my hopeful pick as the best match of the weekend. And that's not to say, I don't want all these others. We talked about to contend. But this I hope reaches its potential, and if it does it's a chance for Oscar to really show what she can do and Becky really show what she can do. I think this does have a chance a good chance to be the best match of a really good weekend of top matches yen that Askin needs to have that moment. Asking to find people. How good she is. And why we were also excited about her being an annex t and coming to the main roster, and and all that. And I think Becky is in the exact right position to allow that opportunity to Oscar and then Ronda Rousey, Sasha banks. The last couple of weeks, especially the last segment on raw, it's too bad. So so few people side, there's a drop off of seven hundred thousand viewers from the first of the third hour they missed out at the end. Maybe there was a surge at the end because I only saw the hour the average but mad. They get me excited about Raanan Sasha Rana's Sasha's pushing buttons getting under Rhonda's skin rod is being held back. I sort of believe there's Rhonda's kind of like not losing track of whether it's a worker not like a little bit which makes which adds a little edge to things because she's so believably agitated I really liked the build up to this. And I'm really looking forward to how they I don't want to just go in and beat Sasha with an arm bar in two minutes because they're short on time stops, it was just a placeholder. I once I should have one way or the other come out of the stronger, even if she doesn't win and I don't expect her to. Yeah. I don't expect you're either. But I think the real value is that we're starting. It said not that dissimilar from Oscars that we're seeing elements of the original legit boss character, the he'll sash. His because that he'll Sasha banks in tea is really what made Sasha banks that version of Sasha banks the one that we saw at the first takeover Brooklyn show and have that amazing match with Bailey that for the first time since she's been on the main roster. That's the character that I feel like we've been seeing over the past couple of weeks. And I think that she's she's coming across. Fearlessly young. And you know, sometimes Sasha banks hasn't sometime Sasha banks has come across as I dunno. Does. She really know what she's doing. And I feel like now she's just found this confidence. And maybe it seeing Becky prosper. She's going like, oh, wait. There is possibility for us here. Like, we can if we can perform at that level, we can perform at that level. And and I think that that she is. And I hope that this is the introduction of of that version of Sasha banks, and this is Rhonda's best chance to have purpose match. Yeah. Casaus that good. Yeah. I agree. The bar MS and Shane what do you expect on this one? Well, like, I said, I mean, I'm not so averse to them is jumping in and winning the Royal rumble. You know, I kind of am thinking that with all the bad guys..

"It's like it's a team that normally doesn't make it like the pears haven't been in that spot in a while had they made us the chip she's sort of that. I mean, the the fresh face in a prominent spot with a lot on the line. And then you've got to see does. She look like she belongs. Right. Exactly bazars been great. I mean, I six months ago. Talking about well, promo wise, you know, she's gonna come along. And all that does she seem like she's pretending to be mean and bad ass, and in stern or does it feel authentic, and I don't ask those questions anymore. She's found her footing as a character and its money. It's it's they're going to they're going to make things work on the main roster with her. I think in a big wet. Yeah. I think she's awesome. And I, and I I think that a lot of that is because she this is what she wants to be doing. There's no she strikes me as a person who is just happy with her life in wrestling. And and that comes across in the level of commitment that she has the level of understanding that she has for who. What where when and why her character is? The report even the New York Post picked up on this wrestling of sort of reporting, Ronda Rousey might might be considering leaving after wrestlemainia this year kind of anxious to start a family and the schedule loving what she's doing it. Just sounds like she's kind of torn it would it. If that is the case, and w w was concerned about that. Could we see a fast forwarding of some storylines in order to fit in something with Rhonda and shayna? I mean, there's so many unanswered questions. You know, if Ron goes away forever, or does she just become a special attraction which case you can come back in a year year and a half at Shane is established. And they can have a big money match with her, and it might mean more. But even that's an x factor in the mix. It's hardly a for sure thing, but it's always been there even a week or two ago. I talked about Ron and the pacing of how long as you're going to be around and do want to get as many matches out of her. Now in case, she doesn't stick around for the long run because she has made it very clear from the beginning that she wants to have this other chapter in her life, and there's. Anxiousness if not a biological reason to try to get to it soon. Yeah. I don't think that there's any reason to rush this stuff even run is not going to be around because it wouldn't have the significance that it could've. Anyway, I doing something with her in shayna even anytime within the next year would kind of be laced like there'd be no way, you wouldn't have any significance. It wouldn't be the same at all. And realistically if we can get Rhonda if Rhonda word Aleve wrestlemainia, right? And she Benxi were to come back in two years and do some kind of special attraction match realistically, Shane obeys. Lawyer is the one person that she would have no problem doing a special attraction match with. So I think I think there's no rushing shayna. She doesn't have the box office appeal that Ronda does. So you can't just bring her to the main roster and have her do the, hey, I'm dominant just like Ronda Rousey, because you know, she didn't have that em backwards shouldn't have the background that Ronda does. Meaning she wasn't the biggest female star in the history of MMA. So you know, I. I think that the for that to really pan out you need to spend a lot of time establishing Shane obeys ler as the most dominant annex t female of all time. And then over on the main roster maker just as on beatable as she was on. And I think that's doable. It's just a matter of, you know. If you wanna do something with Rhonda, it's probably even if she doesn't leave this year to make it work. It probably should be a special attraction thing that happens down the line..

"And he was the first universal champion. And as soon as he got to the main roster. He was a main event guy and he went out with an injury. And when he is not Ben cemented as. A main event guy sense. He came back with the injury all those months ago. Now, he's got the opportunity to do just that if if if he is successful in pulling off a great match with Brock listener. Then he has the opportunity to be to be elevated. So I don't even think I don't even think the question is when will Finn Ballard win or lose. I think the question is what will thin valor? Look like coming off of this. Now, I read an interview I don't remember who did it. I wish I could give credit because you know, I've no problem giving people credit, but Finn valor. I think said that we will not see him as the demon at the Royal rumble that this is something Finn valley needs to do. And actually think that that's a smart thing. You know, I think that. The demon needs to come out when all other options are exhausted. And we've never seen like the demon would come out for the second or third fin valor vs Brock Leser match. But we need to see what fin Ballard without the demon is really capable of. And that's what this is going to be a test of at the Royal rumble. The other big match that I think the build up has been tremendous for is Sasha banks versus Ronda Rousey now. This the reason I'm so excited about the build up for this match is because this is the Sasha banks that I have been waiting for since she came over from annex t. Embrace embrace the internet. Rumors embrace the fact that she thinks that she's better than everybody else. Let her think she's better than everybody else. Let her go out and prove that she's better than everybody else, and let her not be shy about that. Let the legit boss be the legit, boss. Being the boss means that you're in charge. The boss doesn't look at everybody under him. His peers the boss considers him or herself the number one. And that's who saw shebang should be. Now. The question is what does that mean for her in Bailey, and what the tag team division in the in in the women's division looks like going forward? And I think it's actually makes him Bailey can still be tag team. You know, I think that we can be in this for the long haul. But I think Bailey needs to start getting more and more reluctant over the course of the next few months and Sasha banks needs to start being more and more unapologetic and egotistical over the course of the next few months if we've learned anything. During the Sasha banks, Ronda Rousey, build up. It's that Sasha banks works in this space that Sasha banks works in the egotistical unapologetic space. Sasha banks with no respect for Ronda Rousey is the Sasha banks that I wanna see fight Ronda Rousey, and quite frankly, fight anybody else on the WWE roster. It's good to see the boss back. That's the headline this week between Sasha banks and Ronda Rousey, and that's the state of wrestling this week on not Sam wrestling. Don't forget Phoenix Friday night show up seven thirty pm.

"You know, something about something, you know, whatever they used to think about and let's face it sable pretty much got naked and sunny came as close as you were going to do. But I'm and people were watching for that, you know, when I say people, I mean guys on the certain age and a certain in certain thought process, and so, you know, if if if the women's evolution is is kind of stale and doing numbers that aren't growing very much. And then all of a sudden you put on Mandy rose. And there's spike that's where if you're women's evolution fan. You should be concerned. Because and also you shouldn't be fooled. If you're a W reprogram or because one game is a long-term gang the other as short as a short-term shocking, spike and that runs out pretty quickly. There's only so naked that that can get in w. Is has there been a misstep or in retrospect, a critique, you would offer to how Ronda Rousey has been positioned and how Charlotte and Becky in the women's division in general over the last year has been presented since Rhonda came aboard. And there was this elevated commitment to turn this into a serious money, making substantial part weekly television and pay per view. Is there a significant misstep or anything you would look back on and say, yeah, this is something I could have done better to get more out of this sooner? Well, the first thing I'd say to that is when you're doing this, you know, when you're looking back and trying to figure these things out. I think it's I think it's also important to look at what worked where you were before where you are. Now, what did work what what what has really benefited? And what benefits did you get out of those things? But as far as like. What you're asking. To me, and there's a lot and and Becky Lynch, you know, that a woman is the breakout star of the year for WWE. I think is a big deal. But but but we're not going through the positives to go through the negatives. I think that. Managing a special star like Ronda Rousey, and when he realized that she's got a knack for it. When you realized that she's got then pull back on make it a special of that make it special that she's just there. And and I think having your cut promos, that's fine. And I like her promise for the rough quality and some of them. I don't like. But I overall I liked them for you feel like this is an authentic person. Because Lord, no, she is. And but as far as like having her Russell on television, even in main events regularly. I think that that's I think that that's not what it seems like Monday night to me, even though they built it up. It seemed like this is another match and anytime Ronda Rousey is in a match anytime of the special attraction female, or male isn't a match at should be. Go call grandma and from the kitchen, this is a big deal as on blackjack mulligan, Ernie Ladd would've said I'm sort of. And so. This. This is something special. And I think they've lost a little bit of that with Rhonda. And I and that's something of a problem. I think that they wasted a lot of time. And and a lot of engine power trying to make Becky Lynch into into a heel. And they finally stopped doing that. You know, without any kind of turn I think that was something of a waste, but I still think they've got the car to pull of Charlotte being being a brutal he'll against Baqi being strong, strong character baby facing and Charlotte being a brutal he'll against Ronda Rousey dean, Ronda Rousey. So that's there. But yet to me the managing of Ronda Rousey, in some ways has been just phenomenal someone a mainstream celebrity athlete at that level of Feng coming in and. Picking up wrestling and picking up what to do and being protected and being put in the right places. Has been you know, for the most part, a real triumph. But the one thing that I would point to is making making sing making it seem to ordinary her being on the show and be and particularly wrestling. I think that's a valid. Critique for sure are I pers- we've gone really long. It's been a fun conversation. But we haven't gotten to the mail yet, the male baguette, and we've got a lot of good emails from our listeners. I want to just do a separate show on that..
"ronda rousey" Discussed on Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast
"It comes across as cocky, and it comes across as not only does she think she's the best. But she clearly thinks she's better than you. And not in a way of like. Yep. I just work really hard. And I'm at my best. It's no I'm a ten in Europe seven, I'm better than you. This doesn't just mean. I'm good. It means your bad. You know? That's the way Sasha comes across. And I think that's the way she should come across. I think that's the way she comes across naturally when she does that. It's believable. It's interesting. And I think going forward that we should have Sasha banks and Bailey, if we've left them together this long, they should be going towards those women's taking championships. But I think what we should end up with is this relationship where Sasha is clearly in charge and is treating Bailey like crap I think Sasha needs to take this all the way this needs to go well beyond the Rhonda match because you know, Sasha banks wins loses wins loses wins loses. And all of a sudden when she gets rude when she gets rude to Ronda Rousey, she gets really interesting. And I loved that. That's what I'm looking for all of a sudden I cared deeply about the Sasha banks, Ronda Rousey match, the idea that Rhonda's like, yeah. I think this'll be good. And and would just be good sports about it. And blah, blah, blah, and Sasha turns around and goes, no, I'm not here to be a good sport. I'm here to tap. You out you're gonna lose. It's great. It's awesome. I think that attitude needs to continue the whole time the whole time this is going on. I think that that that Sasha. And when I say this is going on. I mean going forward I think that that that Sasha needs to be this person Sasha needs to have Bailey needs to be the reluctant partner to Sasha banks. Bailing, you sit there and go like, I don't know Sasha. This doesn't seem right. Shut up Bailey. Let's go. And put the tag titles on them and have Sasha hold up both tag titles. You know and have Bailey. No, no, it's okay. It's okay. Sasha's? Right. This is what Sasha likes this is. You know, she's really she's brought us here in baba. Eventually you can finally have that build up and blow off between Bailey and Sasha. But I think if we've learned anything from what Sasha has done on raw this week. And in all the lead up with the Ronda Rousey stuff, it's that Sasha belongs being a bad guy. So I should best work was still probably as that at the very end of her next career when she Delage it boss Sasha's ratchet. No, she's not I've talked about it all the time. You know, I used to come on here every week and talk about Sasha banks to my favorite wrestler, because I believed the character Sasha banks can pull off that character better than most people can pull off most characters. And I think now is the time. Time to dip back into that world. You know? I I I'm I'm I'm very high on it. And I think that not only does it make the Rondo match interesting, but it will make the tag team title situation the women's tag team title situation. Very interesting. And it'll it'll create that tension between her and Bailey. I I just think it'll be great moving onto story. Number two. I don't even know where this is coming from. I've been trying to look like why this was written this way. But there was an article in Forbes, and I read the snippet of it, and it's.

"Spiderman you about to join the twenty seven club. All right. I was has the key to the city by, Freddie. Mercury cut cut to Kingston that was easy. Drone. Okay. They keep. So I gotta say when this movie gets into fucking fuck. You're just going gonna do some fights like this hospital fight, I was paying attention. This is an epic battle in this. Eko is was also the stunt choreographer. So the he's he choreographed these stunts these two assassins come after him in hospital room.

Maybe the robots from Halloween three silver shamrock branched into right? Like he failed at the whole killing kids thing. Maybe we don't know. Yeah. So then now it's like thirty years on he's making robots for the military. I think they into car city mill better movie man, if they actually brought that into play of they're is robots. Yeah. They actually acknowledged it was a silver sand. Bro, silver, shamrock, my Celtics hat. I think he made Ronda Rousey to she gets exploded like six times sheet.

Well, right. Yeah. We're on the mile where we're on the road going mile twenty two two cars. Everything's going. Well until the second car like explodes.

"ronda rousey" Discussed on KDWN 720AM
"Juilliard? Of course with a great personality. She would go onto movies. Here's Ronda Rousey. She made the cut. Yes, she's a fascinating woman who overcame poverty and some health issues as well. But I wanted to read a quote from her which I thought my sons, and I really thought was really telling about how she the lessons that she was sharing follows she hit rock bottom at one point. And was thinking about suicide really can go on anymore, and for a lot of the players like Ron at some reason that was a turning point, and she actually quotes from the author of the Harry Potter series. J K Rowling who writes as follows I was set free because my my greatest fear had already been realized, and I was still alive until rock. Bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life. So Rhonda like a lot of the players we write about and rising above and our other book as well there earlier rising above they hit rock bottom all these people, and they literally thought about suicide and couldn't go on. And for some reason some some of them when they. Hit rock bottom is set them free. What I'm wondering is now how does she get a bounce back? She loses the last two fights. She doesn't seem to be able to digest this losing in the vulnerability in the fight game. We saw it with Tyson. We see a lot when you lose once. And you are invincible clearly how do you respond? Yeah. You may have to find something else to do. So she's wrestling. Exactly. So. Yeah. You need a certain age they allow these people they realize there's a ticking clock there, and when you're young and you're a star. And you're an athlete it doesn't last forever. So coming to grips with that. A lot of the players we talked to Jim Abbott and baseball Kerri Strug. We talked about we spoke to for for our book, they really had to realize had to come to grips with the fact that their time in the limelight was ending, and it's a transition to a new life, and how do you do that? So they talk about that a little bit. Remember Tyson said his kids have asked to be no dad, should I fight. And they said, no I bought so you don't have to findings have mechanism to get out of your current state. My singles parents family bomb, pretty tough woman, kind of pushed her into this. So in the end that she's like, okay, I use his to jump up. I don't necessarily image myself for it. Go beat investor be a role model. Somebody else said made their fame by showing a elite toughness gymnasts named Kerri Strug the year, nineteen Ninety-six the place Atlanta..

Shark Week features celebs Shaq, Ronda Rousey conquering their fears
"Hey, I'm his Brown. And here are two stories you need to know about today. During his campaign President, Donald Trump repeatedly promised to nominate supreme court justices who would overturn Roe v Wade. Now that he's nominated judge Brett Kavanagh for retiring Justice, Anthony Kennedy seat, abortion rights, advocates, worried that the conservative dream will come true. Row for those of you who might need a refresher is the nineteen Seventy-three court decision that legalized abortion nationwide. But what needs to happen in order for row to be overturned is more complex than it might seem. First of all, Senate needs to actually confirm cavenaugh. This seems very likely but Republican senators, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins might be hold outs, but they both voted to confirm drums last, pick Justice, Neal, Gorsuch. Then it's a waiting game for the first lawsuit over abortion rights to reach the supreme court. If cavenaugh is confirmed, there are number of cases making their way through the lower courts right now that could end up before the supreme court. Then this prim court has to agree to hear them which doesn't always do even then rose fate may not rely on Cavanaugh alone, but if it is overturned, it would not make abortion illegal. It would just end that decision down to the state level current laws in states with liberal pro abortion rights. Legislators probably wouldn't be affected, but they might see an increase in people traveling for abortions from out of state. Abortion rights advocates are also concerned that the lack of supreme court protection for abortion. Laws could also increase restrictions, including bans on insurance that covers abortion the morning after pill or long acting contraceptive methods, whatever happens. It's extremely unlikely that the US will wake up one morning with its abortion laws entirely reversed, which is what happened.
