The finish to that first ever women's main event at WrestleMania 35 will forever be regrettable.

Feeling sorry for the pain Ronda Rousey was in after suffering a broken hand, referee Rod Zapata ended the match prematurely and was fined by WWE for doing so.

Rousey also revealed exactly when she shattered her hand in the match.
