The Bella Twins won two straight matches at Ronda Rousey’s side. And that, it appeared, was enough for them.
Moments after Ronda, Nikki & Brie repeated against The Riott Squad in a WWE Super Show-Down rematch — Rousey submitted Ruby Riott with the Armbar to flip the script after the Squad’s lengthy isolation of Brie Bella — The Bellas suddenly attacked the Raw Women’s Champion during their post-match celebration. Nikki threw the first punch, dropping Rousey with a forearm to the back of the head before joining in with her sister for a 2-on-1 beatdown that spilled out of and around the ring in short order. Rousey didn’t go down without a fight, brawling to her feet and forcing The Bellas to adjust, but a combination of the numbers game and the element of surprise left the titleholder relatively helpless against the two former Divas Champions.
The attack ended with Nikki and Brie standing over the downed and humiliated Rousey, completely unfazed by the torrent of boos around them. And why would they be? Their treachery paid off. Rousey was in ruins. And The Bellas looked, for all the world, like the baddest women on the planet.
