WrestleMania 34 Will The Undertaker face John Cena at the WWE event this Sunday

Just as the match looked to be ending with both Triple H and McMahon in submissions, Angle was thrown into Rousey, and then tossed out the ring. However, Steph was back in the ring again and helped pull him down.

What should not be overlooked, though, is the fact that Rousey was impressive in all aspects of her performance.

The lights went off, but as the stadium prepared for The Undertaker....
