Ronda Rousey won the WWE Raw Women’s Championship on Sunday and thus became the first to have won the women’s title in WWE and the UFC. Rousey forced Alexa Bliss to tap out to her armbar at WWE SummerSlam held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York to take the championship in what was only her fourth WWE match.

Rousey achieved the feat in style after just four months into her WWE career. Former Raw Women’s Champion Bliss proved no match for the newly crowned champion Rousey.

In one of the most dominating victories in WWE history, The Baddest Woman on The Planet punched Bliss in the chest and sent her reeling outside in the very opening moments of the match.

An aggressive Rousey, sensing anger growing in Bliss, sat down and turned her back. Bliss locked on a sleeper hold but that seemed to have no affect on The Baddest Woman on the Planet, who stood up to toss Bliss around and dump her into the canvas.
