Ronda Rousey debuted as a full-time WWE roster member after last night's women's Royal Rumble, but while her appearance left a big impression, its ambiguity made it hard to get a read on her WrestleMania 34 plans.
The former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion offered handshakes to Asuka and Stephanie McMahon, pointed at the 'Mania sign, then left, leaving the audience confused. Fortunately, the Wrestling Observer/F4W Online's Dave Meltzer has already cleared it up by reporting that WWE plan on booking Rousey in a mixed tag against Stephanie and Triple H.
WWE had previously attempted to put the bout together for 'Mania 31, with The Rock as Ronda's partner. This fell through, and it's unlikely that the company would be able to deliver it in New Orleans either, as insurance issues relating to his acting career mean Rocky is unable to wrestle for any great length of time.
The report offers no hints as to whom may partner Ronda at WM34, so it'll be interesting to see where WWE head next. Regardless, Rousey's mainstream popularity guarantees a gigantic push, though it's hard to tell if her drawing power will endure beyond the curiosity of her first few matches.
