What a way to end the show!
Only two years after appearing alongside The Rock and helping to dismantle The Authority at WrestleMania 31, Ronda Rousey found herself back inside a WWE ring Sunday Night and the moment was pretty special. She even walked down the entrance ramp, decked out in Rowdy Roddy Piper inspired gear, and a pretty sweet entrance theme, which only added to the shock of the former Bantamweight champion finally arriving back in a WWE ring. Then, when she pointed at the WrestleMania 34 sign in the rafters, The WWE Universe collectively lost it!
With that being said and a rumored WrestleMania 34 match for Rousey in the works, WWE did their weekly preview article for Monday Night Raw this week and while it doesn’t come right and say that the former UFC star will be their tonight, it does at least hint at it. In fact, the article, which is available at WWE.com, seems to hint at the handshake between Stephanie McMahon and Ronda Rousey meaning more then what fans originally thought it did, which they claim will be explained on Raw Monday Night.
Below is the official excerpt from the website
“Rousey made it clear that she was going to WrestleMania, but her sudden emergence in WWE has clouded the Team Red Women’s division WWE.com claimed in their Raw preview, ” What did her handshake with Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon mean? What exactly is Rousey planning for this year’s Show of Shows? And how will it be addressed tonight on Raw?”
Of course Asuka won the first ever Woman’s Royal Rumble, which guaranteed her a shot at a title of her choosing at WrestleMania 34, but Ronda’s appearance after the match has seemingly complicated that plan. in the end, there are rumors circulating around that Asuka will indeed keep her match at WrestleMania 34 and go on to face Alexa Bliss for the title. As for Rousey, who made her full time WWE debut minutes after the Woman’s Royal Rumble match, she is seemingly penciled in for the match of a lifetime against Charlotte Flair.
