There's probably no superstar in WWE right now that's more hot-and-cold than Ronda Rousey, as opinions on her seem to change on a weekly basis.

It can be stretched right back to her appearance at the Royal Rumble. Some fans loved how she arrived; others felt she stole the historic limelight from Asuka. There was the doubt surrounding her debut match at WrestleMania 34 and people questioning whether she deserved a moment of that magnitude alongside legends and whether or not she would impress - and we all know how that went down in New Orleans.


Most recently, though, she's been in for criticism for receiving an immediate RAW Women's Championship match against Nia Jax. There's the fact the supposedly skipped the queue; there were questions on whether she was ready for a singles match of that magnitude, there's the inexperience of Jax compared to somebody like Natalya - a lot of factors came into play with questions being raised on whether or not she was ready.

At Money in the Bank, The Baddest Women on the Planet proved that she was. The doubters have officially been silenced, and for the first time since she arrived, it seems like the former UFC bantamweight champion is drawing universal praise with most fans now completely sold on just how impressive she is, even though she didn't leave as champion.

This week on Monday Night RAW, Rousey turned it up a notch in a segment which the fans absolutely loved. In fact, they're not only calling it reminiscent of the Attitude Era, but Rousey's actions have seen fans refer to her as the modern day Stone Cold Steve Austin, and it's easy to see why.

Alexa's championship celebration was full of gloating - as expected - before a furious Rousey stormed down to the ring. Rousey ended up laying a vicious beatdown on Bliss with the Money in the Bank briefcase, before hitting general manager Kurt Angle with a judo throw and some more hits with the briefcase.


Rousey also attacked the officials, before putting Bliss through a table and then receiving a 30-day suspension for her troubles.

Going against management's orders, attacking an authority figure, targeting the referees and going berserk at an opponent - that just screams vintage Stone Cold, and it's something that has been welcomed by the fans as it's a refreshing change to what we usually see on RAW.

Rousey has already made a significant impact on the red brand so early on in her career, and more moments like these will only cement her status as a top star in WWE.
