Ronda Rousey successfully defended her Smackdown Championship against Shotzi at Survivor Series, despite some spirited ringside antics from Shotzi. Greetings, comrades! It is I, your El Presidente, bringing you live coverage of the most important form of entertainment in the world: pro wrestling.
WWE Smackdown Women's Championship: Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Shotzi
Here is what I had to say about this match in the liveblog, comrades:
WWE Hall-of-Famer Ozzy Osborne promoted his new album, Patient #9. Then Shotzi came out. I'm glad they gave her back her tank, comrades. I drive one myself. Couldn't Triple H have gotten her last name back too? Ronda Rousey came out with Shayna Baszler, but Shotzi was alone. Two women vs. one. A woman with two name vs. a woman with one. That is not equitable, comrades! I demand that one of Ronda Rousey's names be taken from her and redistributed to Shotzi.
Ronda didn't really take Shotzi Rousey seriously at the beginning of the match, putting her in ankle lock and mocking her. Shotzi made her pay for it for a bit, but ended up back in the ankle lock again, and then an arm bar, all the while with Ronda making fun of her. Shotzi paid her back with a very ugly DDT on the apron, taking the fight outside, where she hit a crossbody onto Ronda and Shayna into a row of indie wrestlers pretending to be fans in the front row at ringside.
Back inside, Ronda hit Piper's Pit and then ther armbar to make Shotzi tap out. The match wasn't long and it wasn't pretty, and Ronda got no comeuppance for her attitude, but it was nice to see Shotzi get a high-profile title match. Until next match, comrades… socialism or death!
This match only got one tweet, but it was the best spot:

How to Watch Survivor Series
WWE Survivor Series: War Games takes place tonight, Saturday, November 26th starting at 8E/5P, comrades. You can stream it on Peacock in the United States or on the WWE Network internationally. In my country, I make sure that Survivor Series airs on every channel, and citizens may be stopped in the street at any time by my secret police and asked questions about it. If they don't know the answer, it's straight into the dungeons! So if you're planning on any world travel, comrades, make sure you at least check back later to see the results, even if you don't watch the show. We wouldn't want there to be any… misunderstandings. Haw haw haw!
