Ronda Rousey stuns with debut performance at Wrestlemania 34

Rousey's performance had pundits and fans alike singing her praises as she lit up the ring with a barrage of acrobatic manoeuvres that exhibited high levels of timing and coordination, an integral component of professional wrestling.

With the circumstances surrounding Ronda Rousey's first WWE match & quite possibly Brock Lesnar's last, UFC President Dana White will be in attendance for WrestleMania in New Orleans tonight.

"[I feel] absolutely ecstatic", Rousey said after the match.

Rousey's entrance gear was heavily inspired by the late Roddy Piper - who she shares the "Rowdy" nickname with - coming out in a red plaid kilt and Piper's jacket, which she also wore during her debut at the Royal Rumble event in January. Ronda Rousey killed it. 'This is not a smash and grab, this is not a publicity stunt'.

Rousey signed with WWE in February after a decorated career in mixed martial arts that saw her become perhaps the most famous UFC star in history.

And the crowd was loving every second of it, chanting Rousey's name as well as "We want Ronda", which they later rhymed with "This is awesome", during the match.

Rousey soon rallied, but Triple H yanked both the referee and Rousey out of the ring, which led to Angle getting involved once more.

The match had always been hailed as Rousey's comeback after she lost her title to Holly Holm in 2015.
