Ronda Rousey wrestled for the first time since WrestleMania 34 at a live event in Geneva, Switzerland, Pro Wrestling Sheet's Austin Kellerman reported Wednesday. 

According to Kellerman, Rousey teamed with Natalya and Ember Moon in a six-woman tag team match against Mickie James, Ruby Riott and Liv Morgan. Rousey forced James to tap out in an armbar to win the bout.

Twitter user @Na_nou83 shared a video of the finish:

WWE announced during the NBCUniversal Upfront earlier this week Rousey will challenge Nia Jax for the Raw Women's Championship at Money in the Bank on June 17. As a result, it makes sense for Rousey to get a few more matches under her belt before then.

Having her wrestle at house shows rather than Raw allows Rousey to build experience under less scrutiny from WWE fans while preserving her general mystique to ensure her appearances on WWE programming feel more important.
