Backstage Sheamus, interviewed by Megan Morant, says they have improved the quod and brought a new friend, much tougher than the clubs they are carrying. His name is Butch and he is ... PETE DUNNE! The now ex Dunne presents himself in the presence of what appears to be a new stable and is finally in the main roster, but ...
Butch? For real? - Kofi Kingston & Big E vs Sheamus & Ridge Holland. A tragic ending, with Big E being knocked out by a Ridge Holland Belly To Belly Suplex that will likely cost him Wrestlemania, given the nasty neck drop.
Ronda Rousey walked into WWE SmackDown to clarify that she wasn't a one-move wonder. The Baddest Woman on the Planet said that she had a few surprises up her sleeve for the championship match against Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 38.
Ronda Rousey walked into WWE SmackDown
Ronda Rousey was ready to let Flair take off her heels this time, but The Queen backed away. She ended the segment by taunting Flair - saying that she would be forced to tap out at WrestleMania.
At the end of the night, the two women got into a parking lot brawl. The Queen got the better of Rousey and locked in a new submission maneuver on top of a car. She then slammed her head into the hood of the car and stood tall to end the segment.
The match continues with Kofi climbing on the stake and getting rid of Holland, but is distracted by Butch and ... SHEAMUS'S ROUGH KICK! .. 1 ... 2 ... 3! At the end of the match, Butch begins to nudge Kingston until his new friends are the ones to stop him.
The women usually wear full-body in-ring gears whenever they travel to Saudi Arabia for PPVs. But, Ronda Rousey’s choice of gear symbolized a special moment from her past. Moreover, Rousey trained for Judo from a young age, hence, she is quite attached to it.
She locked Sonya Deville and she almost immediately tapped out. Now, Charlotte Flair could have helped Deville, but she didn’t look quite interested in doing so. Additionally, the referee kept a close eye on Charlotte Flair after she stepped inside the ring a few times without being tagged in.
It’s only a matter of time when Ronda Rousey takes on Charlotte Flair, and that time neither of her hands will be tied. If she can make her challenger tap out with one hand tied, imagine what she will do when she can use both her hands?
