Sunday night’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view featured the first ever women’s Royal Rumble match, and after it was all said and done, Ronda Rousey made her debut and pointed at the WrestleMania sign. It was later revealed that Rousey has signed a full time WWE contract, and WWE showed replays of her debut on Raw.

Nia Jax responded to all of the attention that Rousey is getting, and how she seems to have stolen some of the spotlight from the women in the Royal Rumble match.
Cool she’s here….I guess 30 women making history can just be forgotten https://t.co/fHqMezduEH

After Raw went off the air last night, John Cena sang “Fly Eagles Fly” in honor of the Philadelphia Eagles, and you can check out a clip below.

Well, they’re not wrong here. WWE took their moment away from them and turned into a PR stunt for press when they should have let not only Asuka, but all the women in that match enjoy it. But nope, let’s parade out f**kin Rousey at the end which made no sense and had no meaning. Could have saved that crap for Raw.
