Ronda Rousey Killed It At WrestleMania In A Dragon Ball Z Shirt

That is the best headline I have been able to write in a long while.

As you're probably no doubt aware, Wrestlemania happened last night. The WWE's annual wrestling masturbatory event went down without a hitch in the new 49er's stadium with all the relegated fanfare.  While we won't get into the deep details here, suffice it to say that it was simultaneously dumb, hilarious, ridiculous, and kind of awesome in all the right ways.  Only in the squared circle of the WWE can a balding 50 year old man who has dressed like The Crow fake fight another 45 year old man who is known as the "Cerebral Assassin" and have 70,000 fans scream their heads off about it.

 At the end of the show it was a consensus that this one, the 31st iteration, was a success for most, but what was a unanimous decision is what the best moment of the night was.  Or who it was.  It was current UFC bantamweight woman's champion and quite possibly one of the most dominant fighters of all time, Ronda Rousey. Ronda Rousey made an appearance on Wrestlemania with The Rock and basically cleaned shop whilst wearing a Dragon Ball Z t-shirt. How can you beat that?

You cannot, you just absolutely cannot.

As if Ronda couldn't endear herself more? We're talking about a woman who used to moderate a Pokemon forum, who now spends her training downtime playing World of Warcraft. She's also a massive Dragon Ball Z fan?

I don't like to throw around the term "perfect woman" very often, lest it lose some of it's gravitas.  But I don't know if I can actually imagine a woman who is better than Ms. Rousey.

Also pictured, another perfect woman candidate, Stephanie McMahon.

It's been amazing to watch Ronda Rousey evolve into a genuine mainstream superstar. This is so, so cool.
