Ruby Riott, long considered a contender-in-waiting, was more or less routed by Ronda Rousey at Elimination Chamber, and even though she fell short of The
Rowdy Oneís title once again on Raw, Riott managed to salvage no small amount of pride by at least making it a fight.

She may owe a little bit to Becky Lynch. The Manís attack left Rousey as bruised as it did irritated, and Ruby was able to capitalize accordingly. (Related note: Lynch will be arrested and charged with criminal trespassing, disorderly conduct, and menacing if violates her suspension again, though Triple H admitted he thought it was cool.) The rest of The Riott Squad also paid dividends, handing Rousey a 3-on-1 disadvantage where needed. But she couldnít close out; Rousey kicked out of not one but two Riott Kicks, took out the Squad with a crossbody to the outside, and sealed the deal with an Alabama Slam into the turnbuckles and the piece de resistance, the Armbar.

The Baddest Woman on the Planet wasnít quite done there, either; she quickly dispatched the rest of The Riott Squad when they rushed the ring to send her challenger and her cronies scurrying in a display of dominance that surely caught the eye of Charlotte Flair, to say nothing of you-know-who as well.
