Last year at the Royal Rumble, the WWE Universe watched in awe as the former UFC champion and The Baddest Women on the Planet, Ronda Rousey, made her long-anticipated WWE debut. Pointing to the WrestleMania sign, she immediately made her intentions clear.

Rinda went on to have a thunderous debut in arguably the best match on the WrestleMania 34 card when she teamed up with Kurt Angle and took on Stephanie and Triple H in a mixed tag match.


It didn't take long for Ronda to win the Women's title, and the rest, as they say, is history. Let's take a look at three reasons why in only a span of one year, Ronda Rousey has become the greatest Women's champion in WWE history.


#3. Can actually wrestle better than most of the women on the roster

When Ronda debuted on the roster, the general consensus was that she would have a hard time adjusting to the WWE's style of in-ring work, which was way different than what she had done inside the octagon in UFC.


She proved the detractors wrong in her very first match at WrestleMania when she put on an exciting and intriguing performance against the power couple of The Game and Stephanie. What followed was a string of excellent matches on the Raw roster including the PPVs.

She quickly captured the Women's championship and helped women's wrestling reach levels that were unheard of before her title reign. This also led to the first ever Women's exclusive PPV called WWE Evolution, where she battled against Nikki Bella and successfully defended the gold.



#2. Can get a good match out of almost anyone

Ronda Rousey has wrestled a string of women ever since she debuted in WWE. No matter who she has faced, the match always delivered.


Ronda has had outings with the likes of Nia Jax and Nikki Bella, who aren't exactly known for their in-ring skills. It didn't matter though, as Rousey was able to get good matches out of both the women.

On the other hand, Ronda has managed to garner praise from the WWE Universe for her in-ring prowess that she has shown in matches against the likes of Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair.
