Ronda Rousey slammed Triple H into a table during her contract signing at WWE Elimination Chamber. The promo set up a feud with Stephanie McMahon and Triple H possible for WrestleMania. Whether that means Ronda facing Stephanie or a proxy is left to be seen. In the meantime, the big takeaway is that Ronda needs to work on her promo skills as she is still green on the mic.
The set up had Kurt Angle letting Ronda know that Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are trying to set her up. That resulted in Ronda getting all serious towards Steph. Rousey’s appearance at Elimination Chamber rekindled her long-running beef with Stephanie McMahon and Triple H, which began way back at WrestleMania 31 in 2015 and certainly lends credence to reports that Rousey and McMahon would do battle in mixed tag team action at WrestleMania 34.

Uh, I don’t think they should have let her work the mic so early. Ronda’s pretty awful on the stick. #WWEChamber

The squared circle is about to get rowdy! WWE Elimination Chamber will not only feature the first-ever Women’s Elimination Chamber Match, but it will also mark the official entry of iconic mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey into WWE as a Raw Superstar.
The former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion instantly made headlines following the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match at last month’s groundbreaking pay-per-view, walking to the ring to confront winner Asuka, SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte and Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss. Without saying a word, she pointed directly to the WrestleMania sign looming in the rafters to signal that she intended to make a splash on The Grandest Stage of Then All.
According to a story published by ESPN.com following Rousey’s appearance, the former MMA star has reportedly come to terms with WWE to be a full-time Superstar.
“This is my life now. First priority on my timeline for the next several years. This is not a smash-and-grab; this is not a publicity stunt,” Rousey said. “When I first met with Triple H, I told him, ‘There are other things I can do with my time that’ll make way more money, but I won’t enjoy nearly as much.’”
Rousey’s new life kicks off at WWE Elimination Chamber, but when you consider the chaotic nature of contract-signings in WWE, as well as all the attention that Rousey’s arrival has been garnishing in the WWE Universe and in the locker room, one has to wonder whether the special moment will indeed end in bedlam.
