Ronda Rousey tapped out Stephanie McMahon in her first WWE match

Her first pro wrestling match did not disappoint.

After some stilted in-ring segments on WWE Raw – as well as awkward interviews on the press tour – both wrestling and MMA fans were worried that Ronda Rousey’s wrestling debut might be a bit of a clusterf*ck. But it turned out they had nothing to worry about.

Teaming with Kurt Angle to face Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in a mixed tag team match at Wrestlemania in New Orleans, Rousey wowed both the live crowd and fans at home. Coming out in tartan skirt in tribute to her mentor Rowdy Roddy Piper, she spent the beginning of the match on the apron, as the experienced stars slowly teased her being tagged in.

But as soon as she did, she looked completely on fire, and the crowd lapped it up. She got both Triple H and Stephanie in armbars, eventually submitting her to win the match.

And now WWE fans are excited about the bouts that lay ahead for Rousey.
