Following the inaugural Women’s Royal Rumble match that Asuka won by throwing Nikki Bella over the top rope, former UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey appeared at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The WWE continued to downplay it, yet there was a photo that was leaked of her arriving at the Philadelphia Airport on Sunday.

Rousey, who we reported had signed with the company after leaving the UFC following two straight losses, walked to the ring to confront Asuka. Smackdown Live Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair and Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss was also in the ring at this time.

Rousey was on WWE TV programming recently. However, this time, she came out wearing a jacket and shirt, as a tribute to the late great WWE Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. Once she got into the ring, she did not initially say anything, except for pointing at the WrestleMania sign in the rafters of the Wells Fargo Center.

Rousey then offered to shake hands with Asuka, who is undefeated since joining the WWE. Her hand was then slapped away. The two then exchanged words with each other, before the former MMA fighter pointed to the WrestleMania sign once again.

After doing that, she then waved bye to the three WWE Superstars, before leaving the ring. She then shook hands with RAW Commissioner Stephanie McMahon, before leaving.

The 30-year-old was 12-2 in her MMA career. She first lost to Holly Holm on November 14th, 2015 in Australia with a second-round knockout — then she went into a depression, where she said she thought about suicide.

One year later, she was defeated by Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 when she was knocked out 48 seconds into the first-round. She joins Sonya Deville (Daria Berenato) as former MMA competitors.

Deville went 2-1 in her MMA career. She lost to Jasmine Pouncy in her final MMA bout by unanimous decision at the University of MMA: Fight Night 9 on March 8th, 2015.
