Ronda Rousey wasn't wrestling for a title at Sunday's WrestleMania 34, but the former UFC champion was the biggest winner of the night.

Ronda teamed up with Kurt Angle, an Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler, to take on and defeat Stephanie McMahon and Triple H, arguably the two biggest antagonists in wrestling today.

It was the most promoted match on the show: The bout WWE was hoping would attract the most fans to its WWE Network, on which WrestleMania exclusively streamed.

Wrestling fans are notoriously harsh on real-world celebrities, and one in-ring slip up could have been catastrophic for her superstar aura

Thankfully for her, that didn't happen, which is great news for WWE, a company that in the last few years has started pushing its women as serious athletes rather than pin-up models.

The expectations of many fans going into WrestleMania was that Rousey's time in the ring would be limited.
