Former UFC star Ronda Rousey was called up by Irish WWE champion Becky Lynch as her challenger for WrestleMania 35.
Lynch stepped into the ring after Rousey's appearance on WWE Raw on Monday (New Zealand time Tuesday) and set her challenge by setting the stage for Rousey's biggest fight since she made the transition to WWE.
Rousey finished her UFC career in 2016 after being dismantled by Brazilian Amanda Nunes in a one-sided fight.
Rousey started crying last year when he spoke for the first time about the painful consequences of the two impressive defeats that led to the end of his UFC career.

Rousey had already been silent about the shock to Holly Holm in 2015, which broke her invincibility in mixed martial arts, and the crushing strike she suffered against Nunes a year later.
But during a public Q & A session last April, Rousey revealed how deeply the loss of his reputation as the UFC's biggest star had hurt.
"I cried a lot, isolating myself, [husband Travis Browne] held me and let me cry and lasted two years, "said Rousey. I could not have done it alone.
"There are many things you need to remember. Every missed opportunity is a blessing in disguise.
"I had to learn from the experience.
"Of the worst things, the best things came as a result. Time is a great teacher. It is the belief that time passes, even the bad times."
If it was not for these two defeats, Rousey may not have signed his current contract with WWE.
She made a big comeback at Wrestlemania last year and has no plans to return to the octagon.
There was widespread criticism of Rousey, who, after seeking global media attention in her rise to prominence, isolated herself as she was no longer a rooster champion, provoking charges of being a bad loser.
However, Rousey is now laughing last while his WWE career goes from strength to strength.
