Shes immediately goign to be main eventing Wrestlemania if all of the latest reports are true - which is a sad state of affairs for the current roster and is also throwing her right in at the deepend - the only saving grace is that she is in there with some real experienced guys who can protect her and make her look fantastic all at once.

Im not sure what all the fuss is about her finisher neither - didnt look that dangerous to me

Quote Well, this keeps getting more and more interesting.

After initially being advertised for every episode of RAW leading up to WrestleMania 34, Ronda Rousey was not a part of Monday's RAW and the article on the official WWE website disappeared.

As of Wednesday morning, however, Rousey is again advertised to appear on every episode of RAW leading up to WrestleMania 34 on Sunday, April 8th. After the article disappeared from WWE.com, Rousey was only advertised for the "go-home" episode of RAW in Atlanta, Georgia on April 2nd. She is now once again advertised to appear at every show leading up to WrestleMania 34.

It was poor booking for E in the first place to remove her from Raw episodes when they had her to originally be on every one.
 
She's on a lot of money for a light schedule. The least they can have her do is turn up for one weekly segment.
 
I don't think her reactions are going to get better, because this won't have gone down well with fans, even though it's been changed back.

I don't think people care that she wasn't on one show. She was on Ellen promoting WrestleMania and Monday Night Raw both, so I think she was doing her job better than anyone even on Raw was doing. If you go to the youtube video Ellen posted there are tons of women talking about how they didn't even know WWE was still a thing but that since they're such huge fans of Rousey they "might" tune in and start watching again just to see her, and with a selling price of $10 for wrestlemania, I think it's pretty safe to say she just upped the viewership for mania as well. By far the best usage of her time than her being in a segment on Raw.

All the money she's paid and they waste her in a off air segment for the live crowd.

I could understand if attention wasn't drawn to it, but it has been through their official You Tube page.

Maybe next week Dana is going to call her out on what happened and Ronda is going to have a short warm up match before the big show.

I think whilst Ronda may get some form of retribution i believe her debut will be saved for Mania

It's 3 weeks away so why not wait and make it an even bigger moment than what it already is

Quote RAW GM Kurt Angle comes out to the ring and talks about his upcoming mixed tag match at WrestleMania 34. He then introduces his WrestleMania partner Ronda Rousey. He says he knows Ronda is ready for the big stage at WrestleMania, and to prepare because Triple H and Stephanie are going to do anything they can to stop you. Ronda says she doesn't think Stephanie is as tough as she acts, and she's going to rip her arm out of her socket. Absolution comes out to interrupt. Paige gets on the mic and introduces herself, and steps in the ring. She says Ronda is making the wrong decision by going after Stephanie. Ronda says she's not worried about anything, and she has an Olympic gold medalist watching her back. Paige tries to recruit Ronda to be the 4th member of Absolution, but Ronda declines. Paige says she just made enemies, and now Mandy and Sonya get in the ring. Kurt stops Mandy from attacking Ronda, but then Sonya attacks her from behind. Ronda drops Sonya, then drops Mandy. She goes to put Mandy in an arm bar, but Angle asks her not so Ronda lets her go. Ronda and Angle raise their arms in the ring as Absolution retreats backstage.
 
What was with the ridiculous red eye makeup. It was offputting for what was going off.
 
She's still struggling on the mic, but when she flipped and was going to break the arm of Mandy Rose, that was cool.
 
Having Kurt have to calm his partner down, made her look tougher.

Stephanie should not be on TV for the next several months, as she was when she took the table bump last year. Having Stephanie away will allow Ronda to start some other programs for the time being, with possible candidates being Alicia Fox (once she gets cleared), Natalya (who I assume will be moving to Raw as part of the Superstar Shakeup), Alexa Bliss (if she isn't moved back to SmackDown), and Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville. 

This way she gets ring time and experience and will be good to go once they're ready to start the rumored Ronda-Charlotte feud expected to main event next year's WrestleMania.

Quote Dave Meltzer talked about former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey’s attitude in the WWE on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio and how she has been received internally in the WWE. Here is what he had to say (quotes via ringside news):

“I know this from several different people there. Attitude wise, 100% tremendous. No negativity there. She’s happy she loves doing this. She’s a hard worker. She has absolutely no stuck up star issue in this whatsoever. There’s no ego thing there, in fact it’s the opposite everyone’s talked about how refreshing it is that she is so humble for as big a star that she is.”

“So she doesn’t come in with the attitude a lot of guys that came in from football and all this came in and walked around like they were real sh*t or what some people will do.”

Her attitude was never going to be a problem anyway. As a life long fan she was never going to be anything but respectful to those in the business she loves so much.
 
Even ring ability wasn't going to be that much of a issue. Yes it's taking her time to get her first big solo match, but she appears to understand that sports entertainment is different to MMA.
 
The only issue has been those fans who could turn against her. So far she's been popular with live crowds. But now she's in a title match of the 5th biggest PPV of the year, we shall see if that changes.

Well the fun part is that she'll make a tremendous heel. She hasn't been doing any of the smacktalking she normally did during her builds for her MMA matches. The reason she has been such a controversial person in UFC was because a lot of people didn't like her attitude because he liked to sell the match like she was a professional wrestler and would talk some serious trash.

It was fairly obvious she was going to come in babyface, but I'll bet you anything she is just itching to do a heel turn. It's very possible her group will turn heel and the NXT horsewomen will unify as a babyface group to take them on. It wouldn't be very hard that, despite reports like this to the contrary, that her character develops a bad attitude with a big ego and starts acting like she's too big for WWE and that WWE need her and things like that and people would buy into the storyline and go with it.

So if fans DO turn on her, then so much the better I would think.

Quote "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey will soon be making her WWE debut in Japan.

The WWE Superstar is scheduled to make her WWE debut in Japan on Friday, August 31st when WWE brings a big event to the Edison Arena in Osaka, Japan.

Japan have had Brock, now this and Saudi Arabia got Undertaker. UK get fuck all part timers sent here.
 
It would be good if she was put in the ring with Asuka and played the heel role just for the night.
 
It would be a fitting cross brand match for a match over there.
