At the end of her first year as a professional wrestler, Ronda Rousey main evented the Show of Shows - WrestleMania.

Rousey walked into New Jersey as the Raw Women's Champion, a belt she has held since August 2018, but she would leave without the hardware around her waist and would take home a broken hand to boot.

Many expected Rousey to drop the title to Becky Lynch, as rumours had been swirling for months that she was to take an extended break from the company - no events listing her as advertised backed this up.

The nature of the end of the match though was very strange, as Lynch reversed Rousey's Pipers Pit finisher into a crucifix pinfall for victory, although Ronda had her shoulders up when the referee counted at one.

Backstage reports suggested Rousey wasn't happy following the match, which indicated that something may have gone amiss, but the finish apparently went down as planned, sans the mess up with Ronda's shoulders.

Her latest vlog episode documented her whole 'Mania weekend, from the Hall of Fame ceremony to her big night headlining at MetLife Stadium.

Footage shows her undergoing an x-ray for the hand injury she suffered and she clearly looks emotional.

She is then shown hugging Triple H, who she shared a ring with for her first WWE match, and then Paul Heyman, who has been a close advisor in her sports entertainment career.

The embraces looked like they were ones where she would not see them for a while, and a comment she made earlier in the vlog made it pretty clear where her future lies.

Ronda told the camera she was happy because 'today [April 7, the day of WrestleMania] is the beginning of the rest of my life' - which hints at the fact the rumours of Ronda going off to start a family with her husband Travis Browne may indeed be true.

If we don't see Rousey for a while, then she's arguably had one of the greatest first years in all of wrestling and that needs to be celebrated.

And considering she's got unfinished business, there's no doubting she will be back somewhere down the line.
