Adjust Comment Print

Ronda Rousey finally got her hands dirty in the WWE, setting up a feud with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon at Sunday's Elimination Chamber.

Triple H did his best to tamp down tensions and escort Kurt to the back, but not before Kurt let out one last quip about Stephanie believing "she could take" Rousey.

Will you be watching Ronda Rousey's WWE career unfold, or did your interest wane when she left the UFC?

"When I first met with Triple H, I told him, 'There are other things I can do with my time that'll make way more money, but I won't enjoy almost as much'".

Rousey has trained both at the WWE's Performance Center and, as early as August previous year, with veteran cruiserweight Brian Kendrick at the wrestling school where he trains in southern California.

She took the microphone, thanking WWE chiefs for letting her fulfil her dream of performing in the squared circle, before paying tribute to her hero Piper, who inspired her to take up the challenge.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said Peterson should have "addressed the killer - killed the killer". But he certainly did a poor job .

It was later revealed that she had signed a full-time contract with WWE.

A mixed-tag match has been there in the reckoning for quite a while now and she even spoke about her preference of partners. Her night's work wasn't over when the bell rang though. Rousey announced earlier this year at the Royal Rumble that she'd be joining RAW, and Monday night she made her first appearance - and wouldn't you know it, she's already got beef. It looks like the WWE is already setting her up to be an unstoppable force in the company thanks to a blossoming feud with the company's head honchos, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

Stream: As always, the show is only available through the WWE Network.

Ronda signed off by signing the contract and throwing it onto a downed Triple H to the cheers of the Las Vegas crowd.

Her opponent in New Orleans in April will be Asuka, who overcame the odds to secure a win over Nia Jax with a roll-up after taking some severe punishment. On top of that, Rousey showed respect and admiration for Kurt Angle in her brief appearance.
