WWE held the finals of the Mae Young Classic on Tuesday night in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Thomas and Mack Center on the WWE Network after SmackDown Live went off the air.
As seen on the finale special, Kairi Sane ended up defeating Shayna Baszler to win the tournament.
“We were all sitting on the couch and some fans were asking for the picture, to recreate the iconic Four Horsemen picture,” Rousey explained. “We were like, ‘What do we have around the house? We got two belts, we got a medal, we got a machete. We can do this!’ We didn’t know at that moment that it would turn into something. It wasn’t something we named ourselves, it was a name the fans gave to us and we’re very grateful for it.”
When asked what’s next for her, Rousey preferred to keep the spotlight on her friend by saying, “I don’t want to come to Shayna’s event on Shayna’s night and sit here talk about myself,” she said. “I want to keep tonight all about her. Go Shayna Baszler!”
