Ronda Rousey Makes Her Televised WWE Debut In Destructive Win
Ronda Rousey earned a reputation in UFC for beating her opponents within an inch of their life with brutal efficiency. On her RAW debut on Monday night she hinted that it'll be the case in WWE too.
When she ruled UFC there wasn't anyone who could get close to Ronda Rousey. During her 12 fight unbeaten streak at the beginning of her MMA career she was taken past the first round just once, by Meisha Tate, and still won that fight inside the distance.
When Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes both stopped the American, the latter inside a minute, her ultimate fighting career seemed over but a move to WWE always seemed like an inevitability.
Earlier this year, at the end of January's Royal Rumble, she made her entrance into the world of professional wrestling. So far her appearances have been pretty limited, outside of live shows, but now she's wrestled on television for the first time.
The former UFC Women's Bantamweight champion has fought on pay-per-views and at house shows but Monday night was her first television appearance on Monday Night RAW when she faced Ailica Fox, winning in brutal fashion:
Poor Alicia Fox was like a lamb to the slaughter and it wasn't really her fault, after all it's Alexa Bliss who really got Rousey all pissed off anyway.
To be honest it's just good to see Fox back on our screens so we can recall the time Noam Dar said he name in such a brilliant way that a hero made a 10 minute video of nothing but the Scottish Supernova saying it repeatedly:
In all Rowdy Ronda has made 13 appearances inside a WWE ring but only three of them could have been viewed by anyone other than the people who were there.
She's had 10 fights at 'house shows,' a mixed tag team match with Kurt Angle vs Triple H and Stephanie McMahon at Wrestlemania and a match at Money in the Bank for the RAW Women's Title before Monday's match.
In less than two weeks she has another chance to become only the second person ever to win the world titles in UFC and WWE when she faces Bliss at SummerSlam, where she could follow Brock Lesnar into the record books.
