Ronda Rousey suspended for 30 days

This won't have too much of an impact on Monday Night RAW as, though she's had a few tussles, Rousey has yet to appear in a regularly scheduled match.

Before Rousey could lock in the armbar for the finish, however, MITB briefcase holder Alexa Bliss cashed in her contract and beat both Rousey and Jax down before winning the title herself.

The incident occurred one night after WWE Money in the Bank, where Bliss caused Rousey's Raw Women's Championship Match against Nia Jax to end in disqualification. In the very opening segment of the night, Raw general manager Kurt Angle ended up suspending Ronda Rousey for 30 days due to her over-the-top actions. No one foresaw her attacking Kurt Angle and the WWE zookeepers that offered to help. With him down, she powerbombed Bliss through a table. As confirmed by the official website of WWE, that led to Rousey being "suspended" from Raw for 30 days.

Rousey was attempting to become the first wrestler in four years to win the Women's Championship in her singles match debut, but it wasn't to be.

Angle, the general manager of the WWE show "Raw", later slapped Rousey with a 30-day suspension. Surprisingly, it was answered by Dolph Ziggler who was accompanied by Drew McIntyre and the result of the match may have been even more shocking to fans.

If WWE had the aim of bringing in the big audience right as tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw kicked off, they certainly accomplished that feat. The reigning champion going into Sunday night's encounter, she has become one of the best performers on the roster over the past year. Essentially, that keeps her off TV until after next month's Extreme Rules pay-per-view.
