Ronda Rousey has gone full heel in WWE and has turned on the fans and on the other wrestlers heading into WrestleMania 35. This week, her husband Travis Browne was in the front row for her match.
Ronda Rousey vs. Dana Brooke
The match saw Rousey put her Raw women’s title on the line against Dana Brooke, someone who has never had a chance at a title before.
It was no contest.
Rousey destroyed Brooke, locked in the arm breaker and Brooke tapped out. However, Rousey wouldn’t let go of the hold and tried to break Brooke’s arm.
A second referee ran down and pulled Rousey off of Brooke. Then, when the referee manhandled Rousey, she slapped the crap out of him.
Last week, Rousey attacked an official as well and was fined for her actions. Security was called in this week to protect the officials.
Ronda Rousey left the ring and gave her husband Travis Browne a kiss at ringside. Even though Rousey had already left the ring, security ran down and confronted her.
One of the security guys grabbed Rousey and she slapped him and then mounted and beat the hell out of him. Another security guy grabbed her and tossed her aside.
That is when he got too close to Travis Browne. Because the security guy laid his hands on his wife, Browne knocked him out with one solid forearm shot.
Security surrounded Rousey so Travis Browne lifted her over the barrier and the two left through the crowd.
