Reigning UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey tweeted Sunday morning that she and her fellow “Four Horsewomen” were headed to Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California to attend “Wrestlemania 31.”
That wasn’t surprising since Rousey is an unabashed professional wrestling fan. Her nickname, “Rowdy,” was even inspired by the legendary Rowdy Roddy Piper.
Rousey and her friends looked like your average fanatics when the WWE cameras captured them sitting front row at the biggest pro wrestling event of the year.
What happened later in the evening was a shock to everyone.
During the segment, The Rock was ordered by WWE figurehead Stephanie McMahon to leave the ring as she was cutting a promo with her husband, Tipple H.
“The Rock would never hit a woman, but I have a very good friend who would be happy to,” The Rock stated.
Rousey then hops the barricade and joins The Rock in the squared-circle.
Despite calling Rousey “the most dangerous unarmed woman” in the world, McManhon also demanded Rousey to leave her ring.
And that’s when things got heated.
“You need to understand something, any ring I step into is mine,” Rousey proclaimed. “If you want me to leave, why don’t you make me?”
It was pure chaos after that.
Rousey judo tossed Tripple H and violently yanked McMahon’s arm before throwing her from the ring. The capacity crowd went bananas.
If you think UFC president Dana White was upset his golden girl was helping his biggest pay-per-view rival, think again. White was watching on his laptop from England with a big grin on his face.
“3am in London watching @rondarousey kill it with @therock at Wrestlemania,” White tweeted.
Obviously, White granted Rousey his permission to be a part of Wrestlemania.
After premiering “Furious 7” and “Entourage” in the coming months, then starring in “Mile 22,” Rousey will return to the octagon to defend her throne against Bethe Correia at UFC 190.
If ya smell what Rousey is cookin’.
