There’s a new norm in the WWE locker room put by Ronda Rousey. She herself promised to defend WWE Raw women’s championship after each of the pay-per-view nights. Last night was no exception from the Cajundome. It was a rematch from Elimination Chamber against Ruby Riott who threw a tough challenge towards the champion. But in the end, she came up short.
WWE Raw women’s champion started the match with her usual judo punches. She locked in triangle chokehold while Ruby Riott countered it into a roll-up. Riott then hit a big cannonball off the middle rope for a near fall. She connected with the Riott Kick but Rousey kicked out of that. The champion hit her with a gut-wrench suplex.
Ruby Riott kicked out at two and hit a second Riott Kick to WWE Raw women’s champion. But Ronda Rousey kicked out again showing tremendous resiliency. Rousey delivered a big cross-body block to the floor to down all the Riotts. A reverse Alabama Slam into the turnbuckles followed alongside the armbar submission. Ruby Riott tapped out to it giving away the win to Ronda Rousey.
The Riott Squad tried to deliver an attack on Ronda Rousey in the final moments of WWE Raw. But Rousey delivered Piper’s Pit on Morgan and a judo throw to Logan to stand tall on the show.
Ronda Rousey successfully defended WWE Raw women’s championship at Elimination Chamber. She put it on the line against Ruby Riott whom we expected to throw a bigger challenge. The reality turned out to be pretty different as it was just a squash match in favor of the champion. Piper’s Pit alongside Arm-bar handed her an easy win.
The aftermath incident was the most significant though considering Wrestlemania is on the horizon. Becky Lynch appeared with crutches in the hand to assault Charlotte Flair who was sitting at ringside. A vicious beatdown followed thereafter that earned huge cheers from the crowd. The Rumble winner did not spare WWE Raw women’s champion, too.
Becky Lynch hammered away on Ronda Rousey for multiple times until the officials ran out to the ring. It was an action completely uncalled for to hint a fallout will be there on WWE Raw. Mr. McMahon has already suspended her for sixty days which means she does not have the rights to enter in any shows hosted by the WWE.
