The big segment featuring Ronda Rousey took place just prior to the main event of the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view on Sunday night. Kurt Angle went out to the ring with a contract in hand. Then, Triple H’s theme played and he went out to the ring with Stephanie McMahon. Triple H put over Rousey as an athlete on the same level as Kurt Angle. He said that they created an entire division just for her and she paved the way for young women athletes all around the globe and she has earned the right to be called the baddest woman on the planet.

Rousey got emotional as she talked about her signing. She also mentioned her hero “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. Cain Velasquez and Daniel Cormier were among the fighters sitting in the first row. Triple H said that Rousey didn’t want anything special including no perks and no special travel. She said that she doesn’t want to be treated any differently than anyone else. Triple H said that Rousey will be competing at WrestleMania. It won’t be a championship match. Rousey said that she doesn’t want a title match right away because she wants to earn it.
Triple H and Angle were arguing as Rousey was signing her contract. Angle said that McMahon and Triple H wanted to sign Rousey because they wanted to put their thumb on her and keep her down as revenge for what happened at WrestleMania 31. Triple H got Angle out of the ring so he could stop talking. McMahon said that she was embarrassed at Mania 31 but she was also impressed and they have wanted her to be a part of the company ever since Mania 31. Angle said that McMahon privately called Rousey a has been. Rousey was not happy about that. Triple H got back in the ring and stepped in as Rousey got into McMahon’s face. Rousey nailed a belly to belly on Triple H through a table. McMahon then slapped Rousey as fans chanted “you fucked up” but McMahon left the ring before Rousey attacked her. Rousey then signed her contract.
