Ronda Rousey will soon mark the one-year anniversary of her first WWE match when she defends her Raw Women's Championship at WrestleMania 35.
After arguably stealing the show in her debut bout last year in New Orleans, Rousey will face Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair in a Triple Threat match, one that is likely to close the show.
In recent weeks Rousey has turned into a fully-fledged heel character, turning on the fans and becoming more ruthless and aggressive in the ring.
She even had her husband, UFC fighter Travis Browne, involved this week on Raw as he gave a stiff forearm to a security guard that manhandled his wife.
What has really angered some sections of the WWE Universe though are sections of Rousey's vlogs and her in-ring promos where she has called wrestling 'fake', breaking kayfabe in the process.

Whilst some fans were really angry that Rousey would choose to do such a thing, others were full of praise for her attempts to blur the lines between fiction and reality.
One fellow superstar who is seemingly a fan of her work is SmackDown star The Miz, who was asked by TMZ about the nature of her vlog promos.
“I think Ronda Rousey marches by the beat of her own drum," stated the former world champion.
"She always has and she’s a person that likes to stir it up, make people talk, make people listen, and she’s doing just that.
"It seems to me like she’s headed to the main event of WrestleMania, and we’ll see if Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair can do some damage there as well.
"So, we’ll see what happens, I honestly don’t know. But right now she’s making noise, she’s making headlines and you’re talking about her, so everything’s working about it. Everything’s working, right?
"It’s WrestleMania season, you do whatever you have to do to get people watching, and right now she’s doing exactly that.
"You’re paying attention, everyone’s paying attention and that’s what it’s all about.”
With Rousey seemingly taking some time off after 'Mania, we may be losing the tirades about the business for the foreseeable future but it will give other superstars in the women's division a platform to stardom, a division that Rousey has helped elevate to the main event of the Show Of Shows.News Now - Sport News
