Since making an appearance at WrestleMania 31, fans speculated incessantly that Ronda Rousey would someday find her way to WWE. Finally, she appeared at the end of the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble match. On the following RAW, WWE continued promoting the “highlight” of the event, which in their mind, was Rousey’s debut. WWE posted images of Rousey and the Rumble on Twitter, referring to her as “the moment you’ve all been talking about.”
Nia Jax immediately responded with, “Cool she’s here... I guess 30 women making history can just be forgotten.”
On 30 January 2018, Sasha Banks joined Busted Open Radio for an interview centered around Rousey’s arrival, something which rattled ‘The Boss.’ When asked what she thought, she answered, "I have nothing nice to say, so I can't say anything at all.”
Heat appears to be already building for the former UFC star, and she hasn’t even had her first match in WWE. Of course, the jabs from other superstars might be all a work—it’s pro-wrestling, after all. But history shows ‘Rowdy’ Rousey does have a way of instigating, which if unchanged, could lead to backstage woes in the future.
