There is no possible way anyone thought they would get that much from this match. What a fantastic professional wrestling match. That is everything wrestling is meant to be. Fun crowd, good action, excellent drama. Ronda Rousey showed up in a big way. #WrestleMania

Absolutely blown away by Ronda Rousey. Triple H and Kurt Angle did a great job, but by no means did they just carry the match while Rousey did minimal things. Rousey got scratched and beat up in this. Great stuff. #WrestleMania
