For five years, Ronda Rousey was regarded as the most risky woman on the planet. But the former UFC Champion looks to have melted the animosity and now is on the fast track to being one of the more popular Superstars in the company.
Admitting it was her "favourite" fight of all time, she said afterwards: "I feel absolutely ecstatic". Initially, the match was met with mixed reviews.
Though Rousey is a decorated women's UFC star and an Olympic medalist in judo, she had never wrestled professionally until April 8. She tried to pick her up for a GTS, but Triple H was saved by his wife.
WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar shocked a packed Superdome when he soundly beat Roman Reigns, following SIX F5's and several vicious elbows leaving The Big Dog bloodied, beaten and walking to the back empty handed. Ronda threw a coupla punches and liftedTriple H. Rowan hit Kofi Kingston with a powerbomb, then lifted him up to Harper on the turnbuckle for a high-flying sit-out power bomb to end the match. That's a good thing when you are trying to take the women's revolution to the next level. She is a badass willing and capable of fighting men and women - and rather well at that. You could see those extensive training sessions paid off. She looked like she belonged. Jax had been the brunt of bullying and body-shaming for weeks, so seeing her finally reach the mountaintop was an incredible moment. Cena later got a go-signal for a match, but Elias was the one who emerged to mock Cena's WrestleMania quest.
Rousey sported a red plaid kilt and a jacket that once belonged to the late professional wrestler Roddy Piper, who she also shares the "Rowdy" nickname with.
John Cena. Cena spent weeks taunting The Undertaker. Angle even told WWE backstage that Rousey "blew the roof off the joint" because of the way she handled McMahon.
In an excellent match that had fans louder than they'd been to that point, Rousey scored the submission victory with an arm bar on Stephanie, delighting the crowd. It was clear the WWE wasn't going to give this match much of a chance, but it was pretty good before The Bludgeon Brothers took control of the blue brand's tag team division and captured the titles. While we're still hopeful that an arena based on a WWE ring is in the cards for a future update, the first prong of that partnership is taking the form of cosmetic items.
