During Raw this week in Greensboro, North Carolina, “The Baddest Woman on the Planet” Ronda Rousey got weirded out by a bat flying around the Greensboro Coliseum.
As Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss faced Ember Moon in the show’s opening contest, the bat landed just outside the ring, just a few feet away from Rousey. The bat spooked Rousey, as she exclaimed, “There is a bat, there’s a bat!”
Here is footage of this bizarre incident.
