WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey has issued an open challenge to the entire locker room ahead of this week’s episode of the Blue brand. Rousey will put her title on the line against any Superstar that shows up to answer her open challenge this Friday night.
The upcoming SmackDown episode will be live on FS1 in the USA. It promises to be a big episode because the Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns is also announced to appear.
Coming back to Ronda Rousey’s open challenge, here are five potential names who could challenge her for the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
1. Will Liv Morgan answer Ronda Rousey’s open challenge on SmackDown?

Liv Morgan lost her title to Ronda Rousey at Extreme Rules. She has teased a gimmick switch on the Blue brand recently. It is likely that she may go after Ronda on this week’s episode.
2. Will Sasha Banks return on SmackDown?
Sasha Banks is still a part of WWE. Although some rumors claimed that she has been released, Ronda Rousey herself confirmed on her YouTube stream that Sasha is one of the women who could challenge her. Thus, we should not rule out the possibility of another shocking return in WWE.
3. Charlotte Flair

Charlotte Flair is another woman who has a history with Ronda Rousey. Flair could return to this week’s episode and challenge Ronda for a match at WWE Crown Jewel 2022 instead.
4. Alexa Bliss
Ronda Rousey dissed the state of Ohio on last week’s episode. Alexa Bliss is from Ohio, and she could answer Ronda’s open challenge. Also, WWE can put Bliss smartly on the Blue brand in this manner, thereby slowly reigniting her past storyline with The Fiend Bray Wyatt.
5. Shayna Baszler
Shayna Baszler vs Ronda Rousey can be one of the best feuds in WWE if booked well. The two female stars have a lot of history together, and the first chapter of their WWE rivalry could begin on Friday night.
