WWE made it clear during Elimination Chamber 2018 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday night that Ronda Rousey will be facing Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in a tag team match at WrestleMania 34.
Rousey appeared in the ring at Elimination Chamber to sign her contract with WWE. Before doing so, she slammed Triple H through a table and got slapped in the face by McMahon.
Rousey is expected to team up with Kurt Angle in the WrestleMania match, but The Rock was previously reported as a potential partner for her.
Oh, and to all those saying wrestling is fake? That slap Rousey received was legit.
Another interesting note is that the site of Elimination Chamber — T-Mobile Arena — is where Rousey lost at UFC 207. She has not fought in the UFC since then.
Kevin Durant took home the NBA Finals MVP trophy after Monday night’s win over the Cavaliers, but he has even more hardware coming their way in the near future. And we’re not talking about a championship ring.
On Tuesday, WWE superstar and executive Triple H shared a photo on Twitter of the custom championship belt the organization will be sending to Durant and the Warriors.
This has become a tradition over the past several years. The WWE sent a championship belt to the Cavs last year, and they have done it for champions in other sports as well.
Now if Triple H could only get Durant to perfect his Stone Cold Steve Austin beer drinking celebration:
Durant better work on some of his signature moves if he wants to do that belt justice.
The Royals capped off their season by winning the World Series for the first time in 30 years by defeating the Mets in five games.
Along with the Commissioner’s Trophy comes the spoils that go with capturing a title, like a victory parade, which will take place in Kansas City on Tuesday. The team will also receive a gift from wrestler Triple H.
The WWE star is sending the Royals the above pictured championship belt. He posted the photo to his Twitter account and said, “Congrats to the 2015 @MLB World Series Champions the Kansas City @Royals! #HeadedYourWay #DontGetChampagneOnTheTitle”
Kansas City is a well deserving champion and gained many fans throughout the playoffs thanks to a resilient and relentless style of play. It led to FOX’s Joe Buck saying the Royals may be the “best team he’s covered” since he started calling World Series games.
That is, of course, up for debate. However, one thing can’t be disputed. The Royals are the champs, and have a belt to prove it.
