Las Vegas is a familiar place for a long time UFC star like Ronda Rousey. On Sunday she officially signed her WWE contract and will now enter the world of sports entertainment. She entered with the same name, same music, but the brand she is representing is different.
This wasn’t Ronda’s first appearance in the WWE. She made a surprise appearance at WrestleMania 31 with The Rock when she entered from the crowd during a segment to take on Stephanie McMahon and Triple H. She quickly strong-armed both of them and the Santa Clara crowd went nuts. After seeing this like many of you, I was wondering if we would see her in the WWE again.
I had heard rumors of Rousey entering into the WWE with a feud against Triple H and McMahon stemming from the WrestleMania encounter, but I wasn’t sure how they would sell it. Kurt Angle’s part in this segment was perfect with him confessing to Rousey the intentions of management to bury her for embarrassing them at WrestleMania 31. This then set up the perfect exchange between Triple H and Rousey, as he got in her face she hip tossed him through a table, what a classic way to start what is hopefully an iconic career! This for me brought back memories of the Stone Cold/ McMahon feud during the attitude era. I am excited to watch this play out on RAW tomorrow and leading up to WrestleMania.
ROWDY RONDA HAS ARRIVED!!
