WWE Debut

Ronda’s WWE debut was as dramatic as it gets. It was WrestleMania 31, in March 2015. And a classic in-ring argument was in progress between The Rock and the Authority, which at that moment comprised just of Stephanie McMahon and Triple H. It was then that McMahon lost her temper and slapped the Rock ordering him to leave "her ring". This was enough in itself to get The Rock all riled up, but Stephenie didn’t stop at that she instead went on to taunt the People’s Champion, that he wouldn’t dare to hit a woman.The Rock left the ring momentarily, paused and walked over to Rousey who was seated in the front row. And before we knew it we saw The Rock helping Ronda into the ring, Ronda obliging to The Rock’s request and BAM!! Ronda Rousey had tossed a stumbling Triple H out of the ring after which she even threw McMahon out of the ring.

Major Feuds

Rousey made a surprise comeback to the WWE stage at Royal Rumble on January 28, 2018. She confronted the then Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss, SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair, and Asuka, who had just won the inaugural women's Royal Rumble match.

Her altercations with Stephanie MacMahon and Triple H continued as one might have expected. She even faced Stephanie and Triple H in a mixed tag team match where she had teamed up with Kurt angle on WrestleMania 34. Rousey won the match by making McMahon submit with her trademark armbar submission hold.

She then had a Championship match against the then champion Nia Jax, which she won by disqualification after an interference by Alexa Bliss. Rousey then had her first feud as part of WWE with Alexa Bliss over the title. She ultimately came out on the top. Her subsequent feuds with Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch ended her 232 days Championship reign as Becky Lynch was able to grab both SmackDown as well as Raw Women's Championship.
