Ronda Rousey officially becomes a WWE superstar

Ronda Rousey officially becomes a WWE superstar

Rousey, meanwhile, looks to have left UFC behind completely, having signed a supposed full-time contract with WWE and saying it's now her priority - making an immediate impact by putting Triple H through a table seconds before officially signing to become a RAW Superstar.

Following the fallout of the events that unfolded at Elimination Chamber the previous night, WWE's latest signing Ronda Rousey was asked to "explain" her actions by the WWE COO Triple H and Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon.

Ronda Rousey has had a very controversial start to life in the WWE.

The Raw General Manager then said that Stephanie had called Rousey a "has-been" before he was escorted out of the ring by Triple H.

Berkshire more inclined to repurchase stock than pay dividends: Buffett
The last big deal Berkshire made was the $37 billion purchase of aircraft components manufacturer Precision Castparts in 2015. Buffett is sitting on $116 billion of cash and bonds because he's struggled to find acquisitions at sensible prices.

Well, not for Triple H and Stephanie McMahon anyway. That doesn't seem to be the case; Rousey, to WWE's credit, will take baby steps towards the female titles and work a mixed tag at WrestleMania 34 instead.

A number of names have been rumoured to be Rousey's partner over the last few months - but after last night, it appears that it will be Angle standing with her in the ring on April 8. The increased ratings will also help WWE's television contract negotiations, which are set to expire next year.

Rousey, who was one of UFC's biggest stars, will now compete in the WWE as "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey, using the nickname of the famous "Rowdy" Roddy Piper.
