Tonight's WWE Raw Preview: Elimination Chamber Fallout, Rousey's Raw Debut, Lesnar Appears

The Raw contract signing of Ronda Rousey ended in chaos when Kurt Angle let slip that Triple H and Stephanie McMahon had planned to bring her in to avenge the WrestleMania 31 incident when Rousey put an armbar on McMahon. But, after seeing her ram Asuka through that barricade after "losing", how could you not want Jax to be the one to end the streak? They didn't have Rousey get her hands on McMahon and that can set up something much bigger at "Wrestlemania XXXIV". As he tried to keep the peace, Ronda suddenly grabbed him and drove Triple H through a table with a belly to belly suplex.

During the Ronda Rousey contract signing on the show, apparently, there was a drunken fight that broke out. That resulted in Rousey throwing Triple H through a table, then getting slapped by McMahon.

Rousey has about six weeks to begin building her storyline as she officially transitions from the Octagon to the ring and her WWE career gets underway.

She then signed her "contract"-amazingly just a piece of paper with her name on it".

In the run up to Wrestlemania 34, which is scheduled to be held on April 8 in New Orleans, we have had the Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber in 2018, marking a significant moment in "the evolution of WWE". On top of that, WWE showed a willingness to bring back the match type a year ago when we saw The Miz & Maryse take on John Cena & Nikki Bella at WrestleMania. There is also a lot of time to develop a Sasha Banks Heel turn and give Seth Rollins a more prominent role on this road to WrestleMania. Or Rousey and Angle vs. Stephanie and Triple H?

"An athlete of this calibre, I can not recall walking through these doors since an Olympic gold medallist named Kurt Angle". It seemed like everything was going fine (well, with the exception of Rousey's mic work), and they even announced that Ronda would be competing at WrestleMania.
