Ronda Rousey shines in her WWE house show debut

Last night at a WWE house show in Geneva, Switzerland, Ronda Rousey took part in her second ever match in the company, and once again, fans were very happy with her performance between the ropes.

Prior to last night, Rousey only had one previous match in the WWE when she competed alongside Kurt Angle at WrestleMania 34 last month against Stephanie McMahon and Triple H. Yesterday, however, she took part in her second.

The original plan was for the former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion to take on Mickie James in a singles match but just hours before the show, changes were made. She instead teamed up with Natalya and Ember Moon against James, Liv Morgan, and Ruby Riott.

As you can see in the footage below, Rousey wasn't in the ring for a considerable amount of time, but she was impressive when she got her opportunity to shine. She looked credible with all of her spots and looks well on her way to becoming one of the best female workers in the company.

As the video shows, Rowdy was on the receiving end of a hot tag before she issued hip tosses and strikes for everyone, before hitting James with her rolling judo throw and transitioning into her signature armbar for the tapout win.

This is a promising sign for Rousey's development as a superstar, and it goes to show WWE is right to have the faith in her to give her a Raw Women's Championship match against Nia Jax at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view on June 17 at the Allstate Arena in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont, Illinois.

The former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion wasn't part of this week's Monday Night Raw in London as she was attending NBC Upfronts. She is expected to be part of all upcoming episodes of Raw, as she will be required to promote her upcoming Raw Women's title match at Money in the Bank against Jax.

Rousey's display in Geneva last night will show fans that if WWE does pull the trigger and puts the Raw Women's Championship on her so early, she will be able to hold herself in the middle of the ring in each defense she has.
