And it’s official. As we head towards “Wrestlemania XXXIV”, one of the big matches that was all but set in stone was Ronda Rousey/Kurt Angle vs. Triple H/Stephanie McMahon. Rousey had been guaranteed a match at the show and the question was who she would be facing. That was answered at the start of this week’s “Monday Night Raw”.

It all started here.

Angle opened this week’s show with a challenge to Triple H. This led to McMahon and Rousey coming out with Rousey selecting McMahon for her opponent. Angle wasn’t done and called out Triple H as well, setting up the match as a mixed tag. A brawl broke out with the villains being left laying.

Opinion: This was the obvious match and there’s nothing wrong with that. Go with what makes sense and in this case it’s the mixed tag. Rousey isn’t ready for a singles match on such a big stage and there’s no reason to have McMahon get beaten up in thirty seconds for Rouey’s debut. They’re going with the smart path here and that’s a good thing.

Here’s how Rousey got here.
