Ronda Rousey judo tosses Triple H, beats up Stephanie McMahon at Wrestlemania 31

Things got pretty "Rowdy" at Wrestlemania.

UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey got in on the action Sunday night at Wrestlemania 31 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. Rousey was sitting in the front row with her friends for the event before climbing over the barricade to even the odds for The Rock.

In the segment, The Rock was told to get out of the ring by Stephanie McMahon, who was cutting a promo with her husband and fellow authority figure Triple H.

"The Rock would never hit a woman," The Rock said. "But I have a very good friend who would be happy to."

McMahon called Rousey "the most dangerous unarmed woman" in the world. But then she told Rousey to get "the hell out" of her ring. Rousey would have none of it.

"You need to understand something," Rousey said. "Any ring I step into is mine. If you want me to leave, why don't you make me?"

The Rock then got into a scrap with Triple H. Rousey was the one to clear the ring, though. She judo threw Triple H beautifully and wrenched McMahon's arm before shoving her from the ring to a huge reaction from the more than 76,000 in attendance. Rousey and The Rock left together.

Rousey is a huge pro-wrestling fan and attended Wrestlemania with fellow fighters Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir. The quartet has been dubbed "The Four Horsewomen" after the famous pro-wrestling stable The Four Horsemen.

Rousey and The Rock are indeed friends, too. They share the same agent, Brad Slater of William Morris Endeavor.

According to Slater, Rousey's Wrestlemania appearance had been in the works for months, however, he said it was unclear whether she will actually compete in a future match.

"I've told you many times how I work with Dana [White]," Slater told's Ariel Helwani in regards to whether the UFC knew about Rousey's involvement in the show. "I always, always call him and make sure he is OK with anything we ever do in movies, television and otherwise."

Rousey, the undefeated UFC superstar, will meet Bethe Correia with the title on the line at UFC 190 on Aug. 1 in Rio de Janeiro.
