Ronda Rousey Makes WWE In-Ring Debut at WrestleMania 34

Ronda Rousey Makes WWE In-Ring Debut at WrestleMania 34

All competitors put their all into this opening match-up. Matt Hardy, one half of the iconic Hardy Boyz tag team, scored the victory thanks to an assist from Bray Wyatt.

In the process, Charlotte ended Asuka's long undefeated streak.

"Finn Balor and Sonya Deville really represented the gays at WrestleMania... happy 20gayteen everyone".

The main card kicked off with the Triple Threat Match for the Intercontinental Championship between The Miz, Seth Rollins, and Finn Balor and quite frankly, this might have been the match of the night. McMahon tried to continue on in the match by himself and performed admirably, but his own injuries prior to WrestleMania had clearly taken a toll.

Also on the SmackDown side, Women's Champion Charlotte Flair defeated 2018 Women's Royal Rumble victor Asuka via the Figure 8 submission to keep the title on her waist.

The United States Championship was at stake next with Randy Orton defending against Bobby Roode, Jinder Mahal, and Rusev. Both of these attendance numbers are in the top-ten of WrestleMania attendances of all time, with WrestleMania 34 coming in at 6th place (just 250 fans below WrestleMania 28) and WrestleMania 30 coming in 9th.

Ronda Rousey made a stunning debut at WrestleMania 34, her first-ever appearance with the WWE. The match went on for 20 minutes and 40 seconds as she locked Stephanie McMahon in an arm breaker forcing McMahon to tap out and Rousey got her first win in WWE.

All in all, a good start for Ronda.

The segment up next was one of legendary proportions all things considered.

A rumored match between John Cena and The Undertaker also came true at WrestleMania. "He was very much the person who takes care of everyone". It was an outstanding sequence of events and the match did everything it needed to do in a wonderful piece of storytelling.

And although the event featured the return of Daniel Bryan and The Undertaker, it was Rousey who stole the show. This was backed up by a photo Shepard posted on his Twitter account, where Nicholas, Cone, and Strowman posed together with the Raw Tag Team titles.

The Undertaker, who appeared to retire at the conclusion of WrestleMania a year ago, had been challenged to a match by John Cena and remained unresponsive.

There was still the-girl-living-her-dream moments early. The storytelling in this match was on another level. It appeared that Nakamura was going to ceremonially hand over the championship, he unbelievably hit a low blow on Styles then dropped him with a Kinshasa on the outside.

Kim Jong-un comments on United States dialogue
He also mentioned his meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on April 27, the state-run KCNA news agency reported. Kim's remarks on Monday break that public silence, although he did not specifically refer to a summit with Trump.


Charlotte. The ending could've been better, but the match pitting Charlotte against Asuka was a good one. Meanwhile, Braun Strowman and Nicholas are new tag champs with Nia Jax being the new Women's Champion. Instead, Roman took incredible punishment, absorbing damage from half-a-dozen German suplexes and almost as many F-5s, but he kept getting up every time.

With Rousey only being eight years-old when her father passed, she says that she would tell herself that he was away on a business trip and that he would return at some point.

Roman Reigns. WrestleMania 34 was a lot like WrestleMania 31 for Reigns.

Canada's first win of the night came via Calgary native Jinder Mahal, who defeated Randy Orton, Peterborough's Bobby Roode and Rusev in a Fatal Fourway match for Orton's USA title. Thus, the main event will kickoff at 7 pm ET / 4 pm PT.

These questions will be answered soon enough. Afterward, Nakamura turned heel and viciously attacked Styles, stunning the crowd. But to the appeasement of the WWE Universe, Asuka showed up on Smackdown to challenge Charlotte, who is definitely the more skilled champion.

LGBT fans had another reason to cheer: Sonya Deville, 24, became the first lesbian to participate in Wrestlemania.
