The Raw Women’s Championship match between Ronda Rousey and Sasha Banks kicked off the second hour of this year’s Royal Rumble broadcast.
Early in the match, Rousey shouted out to the crowd. Apparently, she was not happy at fans saying she can’t wrestle.
Late in the match, Banks tapped to the armbar but the tap didn’t count because they were outside of the ring. Rousey hit several punch combinations but she was favoring her shoulder due to the damage done earlier by Banks. Banks was able to lock in the Banks statement while using part of her attire to wrap around Rousey’s face. Banks then locked in the Fujiwara armbar but Rousey broke out and she countered into a gutwrench suplex. Rousey rolled through to get Banks on her shoulder. She hit Piper’s Pit and pinned Banks to win the match.
Rousey helped Banks up to her feet. Rousey went to kiss her husband Travis Browne at ringside. Banks walked back to the ringside area and shook Rousey’s hand. Banks threw up the Four Horsewomen hand symbol in Rousey’s face.
