No kidding, this might be my favorite thing Ronda Rousey’s ever done. As someone who never followed UFC, I wasn’t a big fan of her role in the feud with Becky Lynch, particularly not when it involved her regressive views on gender. I’ve also had some concerns about how safe she is in the ring, and the jury’s still out on what effect she’ll have on Total Divas. Today though, I’m ready to give her props. She just released a parody horror movie trailer on her YouTube channel, written by Jason Nawara and Justin Golightly and guest starring D-Von Dudley, and as parody trailers go (something YouTube is full of), it’s really damn funny.
It starts with D-Von arriving for a visit for a visit at the farm Ronda shares with her husband Travis Browne, and at first everything seems fine. But while enjoying their scenic view, D-Von notices something ominous: A table in the woods. It’s the same kind of folding table D-Von and his brother Bubby Ray used in wrestling, so he knows exactly how dangerous they can be. From there things escalate, as the farm is invaded by normal-looking but clearly insidious tables. The imagery gets more and more ridiculous (the part where Travis and Ronda are running away with their farm animals is especially good), until it builds to a climax that I won’t spoil. There’s even a cameo from Paige, but whose side is she on???
