Ronda Rousey
Ronda Rousey had a dream debut at WrestleMania 34

Well, we've finally seen what she's made of.

Months of speculation and build up finally culminated in Ronda Rousey making her WWE in-ring debut on the 'Grandest Stage of Them All', against Stephanie McMahon and Triple H, flanked by fellow Olympian Kurt Angle.

Months of pressure, a plethora of sceptics and in the end, she killed it.

Ronda Rousey exceeded all expectations and had, arguably, the match of the night at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans.

So, who will we see the UFC star face next?

The word "dream match" is thrown about frequently these days - but here are five ladies who could step in the ring with Rousey and that term would not be an overstatement in the slightest.

#5 Asuka

The Empress of Tomorrow would be more than a match for Rousey

There had been talk that, had she stayed undefeated, Asuka would have been the ultimate opponent for Ronda Rousey.

As expected, it looks like Ronda Rousey's finishing move in WWE will be the Armbar she used so effectively in UFC. With Asuka also being known to use the move to finish off her opponents, there could be some great storytelling in this match with both women struggling to lock in the move to try and finish off the other.


But off the mat, the thing that would make this bout a must-see, is that both women are incredibly hard hitters. If these two women went toe-to-toe, you can bet the world would watch anxiously as both women exchanged punches, chops and kicks.

While many thought Rousey may be the lady to end the streak, the pressure is off now that Asuka has an L to her name. But that doesn't mean the match would be any less of a spectacle, and you can bet this one will happen in the future with both women looking to have a huge future in WWE.
