Over the past few months, Raquel Rodriguez has struggled in the WWE. She witnessed her other tag team partner, Shotzi, take brutal beatings at the hands of WWE’s two remaining Four Horsewomen of MMA, Shayna Baszler and Ronda Rousey, and she herself was injured at the hands of the current SmackDown Women Champion’s posse, with a brace now currently attached to her left arm to help protect a “broken” elbow.

She also lost her tag team partner, Aliyah, to an injury at the hands of Rodriquez and is open to the opportunity, regardless of how hurt she may be, to compete for the SmackDown Women’s Championship versus Rousey after a contenders tournament on SmackDown.

Rodriguez gave a bold New Year’s resolution for the beginning of 2023 when questioned about what it’s like to have her first-ever championship shot on the final SmackDown of 2022 when the former NXT Champion faces Ronda Rousey for the Women’s Championship.

Rodriguez remarked, “There are so many feelings, Megan. “I’m upset with the way Ronda and Shayna have handled things over the past two weeks, but I’m also nervous, thrilled, and upset.

I won the gauntlet match even with one arm, so if that proves anything, it’s that 50 percent, 80 percent, or 100 percent, it doesn’t matter tonight, I’m going to shock the world and become your new SmackDown Women’s Champion, going home as Raquel Rodriguez, SmackDown Women’s Champion, and entering the new year, 2023. That has a pleasing sound to it.

Will Rodriguez genuinely go against all logic and bring the belt this weekend to her New Year’s Eve party? She definitely has the cards stacked against her, which would make the victory all the more spectacular. Only time will tell, though.
