Ronda Rousey made her presence felt at the end of a 10-Man Tag Team Match that pitted Natalya, Sasha Banks, Bayley (still not quite meshing), Ember Moon and Raw Women’s Champion Nia Jax against Alexa Bliss (who evoked her rematch against Jax for WWE Backlash in a faux-PSA about the dangers of “bullying”), Mickie James & The Riott Squad that Raw GM Kurt Angle had sanctioned in order to give the female Superstars the same spotlight the men had received the previous week.
Much like the men’s match, it was an epic free-for-all. Moon was a force of nature in particular, putting a particular hurting on Riott Squad member Liv Morgan that culminated in a massive suicide dive (Sarah Logan dragged Liv to safety before The War Goddess could follow up) and Natalya found herself taken out of the match after a chop block from Logan. Chaos broke out after Jax found herself attacked by the entire opposing team, but James managed to extract herself from the fray to attack the recovering Queen of Harts.
That attack was what finally drew Rousey to her mentor’s aid, and while Ronda didn’t seem interested in throwing down initially, another cheap shot landed Mickie square in the clutches of The Baddest Woman on the Planet. Rousey responded to Mickie’s attacks by wrenching James into an armbar that led to the disqualification ruling. A win will go in Mickie’s record book as a result of all this. But that armbar will be what she remembers.
