WWE Raw: Ronda Rousey teams up with Ember Moon

Wade Sheridan

Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Ronda Rousey joined forces with Ember Moon to take on the formidable team of Nia Jax and Tamina in the main event of Raw.

Rousey, the undefeated Raw Women's Champion, chose Moon as her partner after her friend Natalya was put through a table by The Riott Squad earlier in the night. Natalya was originally set to team up with Rousey against Jax and Tamina before she was suddenly ambushed.


Moon held her own in the main event, surviving an assault by Jax and Tamina to finally tag Rousey into the match. The Baddest Woman on the Planet made short work of Tamina and demanded that Jax be tagged in.

Jax wanted nothing to do with Rousey, however, and quickly switched places with an exhausted Tamina. Rousey and Moon would then have to work together to take out an interfering Jax who was sent out of the ring. Moon then delivered The Eclipse to Tamina followed by Rousey locking in her Armbar submission hold for the victory.

Rousey will be defending her Raw Women's Championship against Jax at TLC on Dec. 16.

Also on Raw, Dean Ambrose -- who has become a germophobe -- appeared wearing a gas mask and surrounded himself with a personal SWAT team. The Lunatic Fringe continued to bad mouth his former Shield brother Seth Rollins and promised to defeat him at TLC for the Intercontinental Championship.

Rollins eventually arrived onto the scene and dispatched of the SWAT team by entering from behind the ring. The Kingslayer then chased Ambrose through the audience before he was finally able to attack his rival.

Ambrose would eventually regain control with some help from his SWAT team and delivered a pair of Dirty Deeds to Rollins in the middle of the ring.
