Ronda Rousey will "explain her actions" on Raw

What's the story?

Well, in what may be one of the most anticipated WWE segments of possibly the last decade, former UFC star Ronda Rousey officially signed her full time RAW contract last night - but it didn't go off without a hitch as she, well, got on the wrong side of The Authority and put Triple H through a table.

We now know that we won't need to wait too long to see where this goes, as Rousey has confirmed she'll be on Raw tonight to "explain" her actions.

In case you didn't know...

We found out last night that Ronda Rousey will compete at WrestleMania, but not in a Championship match, but with the much-rumored mixed tag team match against Triple H and Stephanie now looking all but confirmed.

Kurt Angle claimed that Stephanie called the former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion a has-been and said even she could take Rousey in a fight now.

Well, the ever chivalrous Game stepped in to play mediator, but found himself on the wrong side of Rousey yet again, this time going through a table.

The heart of the matter

Amid speculation over whether Rousey would appear tonight on WWE Raw for the first time ever, the former UFC star took to Twitter to confirm she will be on the red brand tonight to "explain herself" to The Authority.

What's next?

WWE Raw is only a matter of hours away.

Will Rousey show remorse for her actions? I wouldn't bet on it...

Author's take

I absolutely loved last night's segment. After a shaky start, it had a huge "wow" moment when Rousey put Triple H through a table. I really can't wait to see what happens on Raw tonight and you can bet we'll see more of a build towards Rousey's WrestleMania match.

Will the WrestleMania match be confirmed? Will we get a hint as to who Ronda will team with if so?

One thing is for certain, Ronda Rousey's arrival in WWE is huge news, and this segment tonight could very well help grab a huge rating for Raw this week too. The world will be watching.
