Ronda Rousey wows in WWE WrestleMania debut

RAW General Manager Kurt Angle revealed to Rousey that Triple H and Stephanie McMahon wanted to manipulate Rousey, which led to the ex-UFC women's bantamweight champion challenging McMahon to a match at WrestleMania. Rousey was partnered with WWE legend and Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle.

"You saw it out there, that's her first match and look how she blew the roof off the joint". In the end, Rousey made McMahon tap out with an arm-bar as Steph screamed in agony. It's the second time in five years the WWE brings its biggest show of the year to the Big Easy.

But Rousey, who was watched by her former UFC boss Dana White, stepped in for the save to deny Triple H and his wife victory.

Rousey, 31, received a raucous reaction from the crowd as she walked down the aisle to the tune of Joan Jett's "Bad Reputation".

It's moments like these that show WWE is going to present Rousey as someone to whom the normal rules for women wrestlers don't fully apply. When she bumped off the ring post, fell on her face from attacks by Stephanie and Triple H, countered the Pedigree, and locked in submission holds, you knew that she belongs.

Braun Strowman was told he had to pick a partner for a tag-team match against The Bar - and for weeks that partner had been shrouded in mystery.

Seth Rollins also made history tonight, becoming a Grand Slam Champion after winning this triple threat match. The Undertaker squashed John Cena within minutes.

Raw womens champ Alexa Bliss took on Nia Jax, with Blisss long reign as the womens champ on the line. Shinsuke Nakamura has seen his odds increase from -415 to -620.

It wasn't all wins for the WWE though.

Brock Lesnar (c) (w/ Paul Heyman) def.

But fans would not be surprised if Lesnar left WWE after Sunday-which makes the UFC's presence on the main event of the show all too real.

Nicholas, ten, was randomly picked out of the 70,000-strong crowd at the Superdome in New Orleans to partner Braun Strowman against The Bar. It hosted the event in 2013, WrestleMania 29, featuring some of the WWE's biggest names.

It may have been impossible to find someone who thought this match would be won by Lesnar.

- The Bludgeon Brothers defeated the Usos and New Day to become the Smackdown tag team champions. Bryan nearly singlehandedly takes care of Owens and Zayn, finishing Zayn off with the Yes Lock and forcing him to tap.
