Before Sunday night, Rousey avoided the ring after suffering a shocking 48-second loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 in December 2016.
Cena was informed Taker was here early on in the show, and rushed backstage to get ready. The leader of the C-Nation dealt with him easily but made his way to the back in disappointment.
Cena made quick work of Elias, and walked off disappointed before the Dead Man finally rose after some shenanigans with his ring gear disappearing in the ring. She looked right at home in the mayhem in the ring.
Rousey delivered an excellent performance on her first outing in WWE and drew strong reactions throughout.
Rousey had plenty of opportunities to strike with her trademark armbar, applying the move to both McMahon and Triple H. She also showed off her newfound pro-wrestling prowess, repeatedly slamming McMahon. Watching from the crowd was UFC president Dana White who was all smiles as he applauded his former fighter's professional wrestling debut.
The lights went out again afterwards, but this time, it's finally the Deadman who marched down the ring.
WWE fans certainly seemed entertained by Ronda Rousey's big debut on "the grandest stage of them all".
This was Rousey's first in-ring athletic display since competing in a losing effort to current UFC champion Amana Nunes at UFC 207 on December 30, 2016.
