At last weekend's Money in the Bank pay-per-view, Ronda Rousey proved a lot of her doubters wrong. 

The former UFC champion turned WWE star wrestled her first ever singles match on Sunday night, against Nia Jax for the RAW Women's title. 

Many fans were questioning the decision to put Rousey in a championship match for her singles debut - and they believed that she wasn't ready, or good enough yet. 

ROUSEY VS JAX

However, she proved them all wrong, putting on a match that lasted over 10 minutes - and it actually looked like she was going to win before Alexa Bliss cashed in to steal the belt. 

Still, though, Rousey may have come out of the situation as the real winner, proving that she can hold her own in a WWE ring, as well as the UFC Octagon. 

Before Sunday, she'd only actually been in one WWE match before - and that was a tag team fight with Kurt Angle, against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. 

It's because of this match that HHH never doubted Rousey's in-ring ability - unlike so many others.

In fact, speaking recently, he explained the lengths she went to in order to get ready for their meeting ahead of WrestleMania 34. 

ROUSEY'S ROCKY WRESTLEMANIA PREP 

Earlier this week, before WWE's United Kingdom Championship Tournament in London, The Game revealed that Rousey had food poisoning in the build-up to the biggest event of the year. 

But instead of taking time off to recover, she apparently turned up to train with him in Orlando just hours after falling ill.

Despite being sick, Rousey was determined to keep going and eventually, HHH had to personally stop the session. 

Wow. It's that kind of determination and fight that proves exactly why Rousey belongs in the WWE. Where many would have given up and taken some time off, she continued to train for her big moment. 

To be fair, she's been rewarded for showing that attitude too - and it's likely in part down to her drive and commitment that she's been put straight into the main event picture.
