Ronda Rousey continues to be a part of WWE's European tour this week, and last night in Vienna, Austria, she wrestled in only her third match since becoming a WWE superstar when she made her debut with the company back at the Royal Rumble in January.
Prior to last night, Rousey had only wrestled in two previous matches in the WWE. Her first was when she competed alongside Kurt Angle at WrestleMania 34 last month against Stephanie McMahon and Triple H. Her second came on Wednesday night in Geneva, Switzerland when she teamed up with Natalya and Ember Moon against Mickie James, Liv Morgan, and Ruby Riott.
Her third match came last night in Vienna where she once again teamed up with Natalya and Moon against James, Morgan, and Riott. However, while she was backstage during that show, she was seen locking up and training with a WWE legend.
WWE originally tweeted the video out of Rowdy locking up with Goldust backstage on their Twitter account. However, for some reason, hours later, they deleted the video from their account.
Luckily, one WWE fan was able to save the video and post it on their own YouTube channel with some graphics around it for fellow members of the WWE Universe to enjoy. You can see the video for yourself further down in this article.
Just like the night before Rousey, Natalya and Moon managed to defeat James, Morgan, and Riott with the match finishing the same way which their match the night before did with Rowdy forcing James to tap out to her armbar.
Originally, all of Rousey's house show matches during this European Tour were singles matches against James. According to Rajah, the reason why WWE has changed all these matches to six-woman tag bouts instead is because they don't want to rush her into singles matches.
However, this is quite an odd decision by WWE considering that it's only about a month until Rousey faces off against Nia Jax at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view on June 17 for the Raw Women's Championship. You would have thought they would give her a few practice runs in singles matches before throwing her into one of the biggest matches in her WWE career to date.
