Ronda Rousey showed up at WrestleMania 31. The UFC women's bantamweight champion was sitting in the front row when The Rock came out, and was confront by Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, who are the big bad bosses in WWE storylines. After some hinting that led 77,000 people to chant Ronda's name, The Rock called Ms. Rousey into the ring, and she proceeded to verbally tear Stephanie apart, and gave Hunter a good old judo throw. Seriously.

UFC president Dana White was quick to react on Twitter:

You might not be a fan of WWE, but this came off really well. Ronda was a huge star in the eyes of the fans and it could lead to some great business, as it was a clear setup for a match with Stephanie. It has been expected for a while that The Rock (real name Dwayne Johnson) is set to take on Triple H at WrestleMania 32. Could Ronda be in on that? We'll find out.
