Former SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey shocked the Madison Square Garden crowd with an offscreen surprise appearance!
The July 25th Raw from Madison Square Garden saw Doudrop face off against Alexa Bliss in singles action. Earlier in the night, Bliss cut a promo about Doudrop and Nikki ASH, saying that they shouldn’t be codependent. She said that while she loves her doll Lilly, Lilly doesn’t need her and she doesn’t need Lilly.
Despite her best efforts, Doudrop was unsuccessful in her match against Little Miss Bliss and Alexa picked up a victory.
During the commercial break following the match, Doudrop took to the microphone and said that she was tired of being disrespected. She declared that she wouldn’t leave the ring unless someone made her, and proceeded to sit down in a huff.
To the surprise of the New York crowd, the sounds of Joan Jett played throughout the arena and former SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey charged to the ring to do just that. After a kick to Doudrop, Ronda Rousey was attacked from behind by Nikki ASH, but dispatched the almost superhero with a series of throws.
Just when it looked like Rousey would put Doudrop in her signature armbar, she changed her mind and inflicted an ankle lock instead. Doudrop got to the ropes and was pulled out of the ring by her tag team partner, leaving Ronda to celebrate in the ring and wave to the fans in attendance.
