The Reviews Are In For Ronda Rousey's WrestleMania Debut

Share

Jax had been the brunt of bullying and body-shaming for weeks, so seeing her finally reach the mountaintop was an wonderful moment. Rousey flipped McMahon into the ring, clotheslined her and then added a suplex. This week's WWE Raw viewership was way up from last week's 3.357 million viewership average for the final Raw before WrestleMania.

So while the Raw after WrestleMania phenomenon has probably been played up too much in the past when it didn't deserve it, the New Orleans fans brought it and are worthy of any accolades thrown their way.

Former UFC Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey stepped up the task of taking on The Authority Stephanie McMahon and Triple H inside the squared ring at Wrestlemania 2018.

Comment below and tell us whether you think WWE will continue Rousey's beef with Stephanie McMahon going forward.

Rousey celebrated Sunday night the same way she used to celebrate wins as a UFC fighter - with a huge plate of hot wings. But that didn't matter, as the "Monster Among Men" singlehandedly defeated the defending champs, giving him and Nicholas the Raw Tag Team Championship belts.

Rousey started the match on the sidelines and had to watch McMahon and Triple H beat up on poor Kurt Angle for a while. In an incredible display of athleticism and aerial skills, Alexander scored the win, enjoying his first "WrestleMania moment". Good. That angle made no sense.

The Tag Team elimination tournament was announced. With the call ups from NXT, the tag team division is looking more interesting.

For the better part of three years, Asuka rolled through the competition in NXT and on Raw, beating every single competitor put before her. The Authors of Pain also came up and made quick work of Rhyno and poor Heath Slater and his kids.

While the wrestler's performances in the ring are the main attraction, a great deal of attention is given to how the performers enter the stadium. I worked my ass off to pay respect to what's so important to them, and hopefully they saw that tonight.

With Irishman Sheamus and Swiss superstar Cesaro suffering defeat at the hands of their prepubescent opponents and losing their titles there's no doubt they'll be annoyed to find out the ref in the fight might have been at best a little biased.
