– Before her WWE RAW Women’s Championship match against Ronda Rousey at this Sunday’s Elimination Chamber PPV, Riott had some words for the champ.
“Everyone thinks they know how this will go, everyone thinks they know what the first-ever WrestleMania headlined by women is going to be, “Riott said.” They think it has to involve Ronda Rousey, whether it be against Charlotte Flair or Becky Lynch. It has to be headlined by Ronda Rousey because she’s carried the women’s evolution on her back, as far as she’s concerned. But I have news for ya. We’re not just involved in the women’s evolution, the Riott Squad is the women’s evolution. We are the change this division needs, so in the very building that the Riott Squad was formed, a year and some change later, we’re all gonna leave as champions and walk out those doors on the road the WrestleMania and start a riot.”
