Ronda Rousey dominates in electric debut match at Wrestlemania
It took a few years, but WWE finally managed to sign Ronda Rousey to a contract to become a pro wrestler.
After a month of sporadic appearances on Monday Night Raw, and a story about the McMahon family wanting payback for WrestleMania with The Rock a couple years ago, it all came to a head at WrestleMania 34 tonight(Sun., April 8, 2018) in New Orleans, Louisiana.

It was an Olympic “dream team”, Rousey and Kurt Angle, taking on Stephanie McMahon and HHH and the match was much better than anyone could have possibly imagined it would be. No really, it wasn’t terrible at all.
They built the match around Kurt Angle taking a beating and the heels doing their best to make sure he couldn’t tag in Rousey. It worked for a short while, and then “Rowdy” got in and ran wild on Stephanie, who was “begging for mercy”.
They set up for the armbar spot and the crowd was loving it. But Steph McMahon knew how to get out of it — raking the eyes. Stephanie was still completely outmatched, and Ronda did what she wanted with her.

Triple H had to make the save, pulling her out of the ring after doing the same to the referee on what would have been the winning pinfall. Stephanie was out of it, leaving Trips in by himself with Rousey, who wanted to square up with “The Game.” And he did. And she beat the heck out of him.

Before she could hit her finish, Stephanie recovered and they battled to the outside. That gave the guys time to do their thing and they built to an insane false finish with HHH kicking out of the Angle Slam.
“This is awesome” was heard around the arena.
Next time, they set up for a double Pedigree but the fan favourites countered and Stephanie was left alone in the ring to deal with yet another armbar from Ronda. This time, she finished the job.
Stephanie tapped out.
