Ronda Rousey Wins Pro-Wrestling Debut, Via UFC-Style Armbar

Former UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey entered the ring for the first match of her career on Sunday night April 8 at WrestleMania 34 in New Orlean. ‘Rowdy’ team with Olympic gold medalist and WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle against Triple H and non-wrestler Stephanie McMahon.  Rousey appears on the scene in the style of her idol wearing Rowdy Roddy Piper’s leather jacket and his signature kilt.

Midway through, Rousey fired with series of strikes on Triple eventually putting him in an armbar. McMahon broke up the submission but would tap out from a Rousey armbar herself shortly afterward with that Rousey winning the match.
