Ronda Rousey comes to the ring

Ronda Rousey made her way to the ring and said she paid her fine and then some last week so she isn’t leaving this week until she is reinstated.

Adam Pearce came towards the ring with a couple of security guards. He makes it clear that he cannot reinstate her as the authority is above his pay grade. Rousey can’t come out and hijack the show. The former SmackDown Women’s Champion warned Pearce not to make her choose violence.

Pearce sent security to the ring. Rousey shrugs them off with a kick to one and a judo throw to the other. Two more guards come out but Rousey gets the armbar on one of them. Pearce tries to convince Rousey to let go but the former MMA Star just fell back on the armbar. Pearce calls police officers and Rousey is cuffed and taken out of the arena.

Both men began a slugfest. McIntyre got the better of the exchange. He went for the Claymore but Zayn pushed Reigns away and took the bullet for the Tribal Chief.
