Ronda Rousey Was Spectacular In Her Debut Match At WrestleMania

It’s hard to live up to the hype, but on the rare occasion where the initial hype is surpassed, that’s where magic happens. That is exactly what happened in Ronda Rousey’s debut on the Grandest Stage of Them All, WrestleMania. Once Ronda made her WWE debut at the Royal Rumble, a target was immediately put on her back. Could her historic success in UFC translate to the WWE? Ronda had to go from real fighter to sports entertainer, which is no easy task. Fighting is not the only thing she has to worry about. Selling moves, engaging with the crowd, mic skills, and ring presence are now a priority. I’ll be honest, when I first heard Ronda’s debut would be a mixed tag team match with her and Kurt Angle taking on Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, I was nervous. Triple H and Kurt would have to carry the match because Stephanie rarely wrestles and this was Ronda’s first match. Could Ronda find a way to shine in the match? I wasn’t sure at first. Then, the match happened…

And it completely stole the show. Wow. That match was very entertaining and well executed. I had little hopes going in and I am so glad I was wrong. That match exceeded expectations completely. Ronda’s training paid off because she looked like a real WWE superstar in the ring. She sold all of her bumps. She had the crowd in the palm of her hand when she kept teasing the arm bar on Stephanie. SHE FOUGHT TRIPLE H! TRIPLE H SOLD HER SHOTS! Credit to Triple H and Stephanie. They put on a clinic on how to put talent over. This is why NXT is on fire because Triple H is calling the shots. It’s a preview of what WWE will look like one day when Hunter is in charge. Back to Rousey. You could not ask for a better debut. It’s clear that she can hold her own in the ring. Now, she has to prove it on the mic. Mic skills will improve with more reps, but Ronda would benefit greatly from a manager. If Ronda has a mouthpiece doing most of her promos, she will come off as a prizefighter and an unstoppable force. With a manager, Ronda Rousey could main event next year’s WrestleMania with Charlotte Flair. That is the best case scenario if this experiment works. Hmm I wonder who could be her mouthpiece…
