As if WrestleMania 34 needed any more drumming up, WWE added more spice to the promotion of its centerpiece event by having Ronda Rousey and Stephanie McMahon figure in a staredown that ended with Rousey being slammed through a table. In the final Monday Night Raw before this Sunday's wrestling spectacle, the camps of Rousey and Kurt Angle, and McMahon and Triple H did a press conference that got a bit personal when McMahon brought up Rousey's notorious way of handling defeat. When the two duos stood up from their seats for a photo-op, that's when McMahon started to mouth off at Rousey.
