WWE News: Ronda Rousey reacts to the actions of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in the past 24 hours
What's the story?
It has been a whirlwind 24 hours for Ronda Rousey after signing her Monday Night Raw contract at the Elimination Chamber pay per view and confronting Triple H and Stephanie McMahon on this week's edition of Raw. After the smoke settled, Rousey would post on Twitter and Instagram her reaction to what happened.
In case you didn't know...
Before her widely popular MMA career, Ronda Rousey was an Olympic athlete in Judo. She competed in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece at the age of 17, but lost her first match. At the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China, Rousey would win the bronze medal becoming the first American to win a medal in Judo at the Olympics.
The heart of the matter
At Elimination Chamber, Rousey noticed Kurt Angle and Triple H having a discussion just as she was about to sign her contract. That was when Angle made it public that Triple H and Stephanie were going to do everything in their power to hold her down in the WWE.
In the end, Triple H was put through a table after a nice belly-to-belly suplex by Rousey, and then Stephanie inducted Ronda into her infamous "slap club."
On this week's edition of Raw, Rousey interrupted Triple H and Stephanie and clearly didn't look pleased. Angle tried to calm things down by saying he was sick and not thinking clearly, and none of the things he said at Elimination Chamber were true.
Ronda demanded that Stephanie apologize for the slap, and she did (but nobody truly bought it as sincere), and as The Authority was leaving the ring, Triple H sucker punched Angle.
It's pretty clear now that we're heading to a mixed tag team match between Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon at WrestleMania 34. Expect this story to progress on the next edition of Monday Night Raw from the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
This match was rumored for a couple of months, with Ronda's partner being the only unknown. On paper, I wasn't excited that this was the first match in Ronda's career, but the end of Raw was tremendous this week, and now I'm truly excited that I am going to be able to witness this match in person when I head to New Orleans in a little over a month.
