WrestleMania 34: The Undertaker Returns to Challenge John Cena

  • Triple H revealed who he thinks is the greatest WWE superstar of all time

Paying homage to her nickname namesake, the late "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, Rousey rocked a kilt en route to the ring.

The former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion and Olympic Bronze medallist teamed up with wrestling great Kurt Angle in a tag-team bout against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon that had the crowd at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans in raptures.

John Cena spent the kickoff show watching WrestleMania with the fans at ringside, just as he promised he would if The Undertaker didn't show up.

White was actually invited to the event by Ronda Rousey.




The Champ had been calling Taker out for four weeks and cut some scathing promos against him calling him a coward.

After outside interference from Triple H, Rousey and the WWE's chief operating officer squared off in the ring - something that has rarely ever been allowed in a WWE ring - with Rousey landing more blows before McMahon re-entered. The heelish power duo took control of things a bit from there, as they eventually set up for a simultaneous Pedigree on Angle and Rousey.

A little more than a year after her disappointing return to the UFC, Rousey is making a new name for herself in the WWE ring.

But then the lights went out again, and The Undertaker's previously discarded garments appeared. However, one has to wonder what will be next for her pro wrestling career as she'll need to have a singles match at some point.
