Ronda Rousey debuts at WWE Royal Rumble 2018


She tried to throw us off the scent with some social media work today but in the end, she was at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania tonight (Sun., Jan. 28, 2018) after all.

That’s right, folks, Ronda Rousey has made her WWE debut.

She didn’t do so in the Royal Rumble match, instead making her way out after Asuka emerged victorious. They were in the middle of a ceremony that would see Asuka decide if she was going to challenge Charlotte for the SmackDown women’s title or Alexa Bliss for the Raw women’s championship.

She attempted to shake hands with Asuka, who pushed her away.

Then she went and shook hands with Stephanie McMahon ringside.

They quickly noted that news was breaking on social media and that news was a report from ESPN that she has signed on to be a full time Superstar for WWE.

Are you ready to get Rowdy?
