Ronda Rousey is quickly finding her niche in pro wrestling.

Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey had quite the weekend in a WWE ring. The former fighter turned pro wrestler had her first singles match on Sunday at Money in The Bank, challenging Nia Jax. She didn’t come out on top there, through no fault of her own, but she got her revenge the next night.

At a point where it looked like she had an advantage, superstar Alexa Bliss entered the fray. Using the Money in the Bank briefcase she won just a couple of hours before that, Bliss clubbed Rousey to knock her out of the ring and finished off the champ, taking the belt home in the process.

Needless to say, Rousey was pissed.

Rousey came out, but was held back by Raw GM (and wrestling Olympic gold medalist) Kurt Angle. Until Bliss went too far, that is. Rousey attacked with the MITB briefcase, and Angle tried to hold her back. So she beat the holy hell out of Angle with it too. Four referees jumped in the ring...and they got dusted as well.

Due to her actions, Angle had no choice but to “suspend” her for 30 days. Which probably means she’s going to film a movie or something. But regardless, her match was high-quality, the Raw segment was one of the best of 2018 involving anyone, and there’s only one conclusion to draw - Ronda Rousey is really good at pro wrestling.
