According to Forbes, WWE is setting her up for failure by doing what they seemingly do best...
Highlighting a wrestlers weaknesses and making them more apparent to the audience.
During her UFC career, Rousey was labeled "The Baddest Woman On The Planet" because she let her nearly unparalleled fighting skills do the talking for her. Unlike a Conor McGregor or a Floyd Mayweather, Rousey was never known for being a master of the microphone, and yet, WWE has inexplicably started her WWE run with a few tough-to-watch segments that have highlighted her biggest weakness: Her promo ability.

Now to me, I think it is FAR too soon to be saying this considering she has not had much time at all on TV and she is just working with what they give her. Most wrestlers struggle with promos to some degree, even the best of the best can have a bad promo now and then. I think the only two in WWE to have been consistently good for over 5 years has been John Cena and Chris Jericho but both of those men have God given acting and charisma skills to get into character. Ronda is a former UFC fighter who has only ever talked from the heart about a fight. Not only does she have to act and be in character, but she also has to follow WWE's guidelines which are known to screw over many wrestler's abilities to actually be good on the mic. I think they need to get her with Paul Heyman ASAP to help with the adjustment, especially if Brock is taking a break after Wrestlemania.
What do you all think?
