This was a very well done debut for Rousey, who eventually forced McMahon to tap out to the armbar.

WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship — Charlotte Flair (champion) vs. Asuka
Asuka’s streak is over in a heck of a match between these two excellent women. First Undertaker’s streak ends in New Orleans, and now this!
Asuka had the upper hand early, countering a moonsault into a triangle choke, as well as suplexing Charlotte from the apron to the floor.
A spanish fly off the top rope was stunning, and Charlotte’s spear got her a two-count before she turned a figure four into a figure eight and got the shocking clean submission victory.
After the match, Asuka grabbed a microphone and said “Charlotte WAS ready for Asuka”. They then hugged.
WWE Intercontinental Championship — The Miz (champion) vs. Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor
Winner and NEW Intercontinental Champion: Seth Rollins
Really cool match between two great workers and a heck of a character in Miz.
Rollins landed an awesome frog splash on Miz mid-Figure Four leg lock on Balor, and then Balor broke up a pin after a Skull Crushing Finale off the top rope with the Coup de Grace.
Balor landed the Coup de Grace on Miz, but Rollins curb stomped both of them and claimed the title.
Pre-show — The WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal
Becky Lynch, Bayley and Sasha Banks of the women got entrances — others came out all as one. That’s more than the men got.
Miss Money in the Bank Carmella was the first one eliminated. A number of NXT women including Australia’s Peyton Royce and New Zealand’s Dakota Kai worked together.
The final six looked to be the Riot Squad against Sasha Banks, Natalya and Bayley.
Bayley and Banks appeared to be the final two but then Naomi came in because she hadn’t been thrown out and won.
And so the Bayley/Banks feud continues with the two betraying each other for no actual success.
Pre-show — Cedric Alexander v Mustafa Ali
Winner and NEW Cruiserweight Champion: Cedric Alexander
A nice little match between these two with some brilliant spots, including a Spanish Fly off the top rope and a reverse hurricanrana into a tornado DDT by Ali.
They went for a bit of the Flair v HBK emotional “I don’t want to hurt you but I have to” at the end, after Alexander got his foot on the ropes after Ali hit an inverted 450 splash. Alexander then got the win with the Lumbar Check.
Pre-show — The Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Winner: ‘Woken’ Matt Hardy
Everyone started in the ring with no entrances. Aiden English was the first eliminated. Goldust turned on R-Truth and then dabbed — what a heel.
Wrestlers were slowly thrown out, with Dolph Ziggler constantly almost getting eliminated. Your final five was Ziggler, Kane, Matt Hardy, Mojo Rawley and Baron Corbin.
Kane took out Dolph, then Corbin took out Kane. Bray Wyatt suddenly appeared in the ring and eliminated Rawley before Hardy eliminated Corbin to win it. Wyatt and Hardy then shook hands and posed together.
