Much of the positive reaction has been directed at the women while some say it was too produced and came off like a copy of something they would do with Stone Cold Steve Austin during the Attitude Era. However you feel about it, the goal was to get some final buzz for their match and it seems to have worked because it was the main thing fans were talking about after Raw and on Tuesday.
It turns out that everything that took place backstage was pre-taped before Monday Night Raw went on the air so that would explain the constant camera cuts and explains how Rousey somehow ended up in the driver’s seat of a police car.
As noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, this was a collaborative effort with a lot of people pitching ideas including Vince McMahon, Paul Heyman, Kevin Dunn and Marty Miller. Rousey, Flair and Lynch also pitched their own ideas for the segment.
