Ronda Rousey Attacks WWE Champion, Suspended

Video: Ronda Rousey Suspended From WWE Following Vicious 'Attack'

Ronda Rousey suspended by WWE after 'attacking' Alexa Bliss and Kurt Angle

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.

"Rowdy" Ronda Rousey took a revenge against "The Goddess" Alexa Bliss for costing him a title opportunity on Sunday. Nia Jax overpowered Rousey and hit her with a few devastating moves, from a sit-out powerbomb to her signature Samoan slam. Once Bliss called her an "overhyped rookie", Rousey took great offense and ended up powerbombing the champion through a table.

Angle, the general manager of "Raw", chided Rousey for her actions after the episode and suspended her for 30 days. No one foresaw her attacking Kurt Angle and the WWE zookeepers that offered to help.

Ronda Rousey isn't ready to wrestle long one-on-one singles matches in WWE.

Right after all that chaos, the first match of the night saw Seth Rollins issue an open challenge for his WWE Intercontinental Title.

Rousey retaliated last night on RAW by interrupting Bliss' title celebration and assaulting both RAW General Manager Kurt Angle and the RAW Women's Champion. The suspension angle is a neat and clean way to get Rousey off TV with fans not thinking anything of it.

But, does having Rousey not win the championship hurt her drawing power moving forward?

Monday's announcement is basically a rehash of a similar story WWE told the night after WrestleMania 31 in March 2015.

Rousey's suspension means she will be unable to compete at the next WWE pay-per-view show on July 15, Extreme Rules, at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh.
