Ronda Rousey's first match for WWE has been confirmed after it was announced she will partner with Kurt Angle to take on Stephanie McMahon and Triple H at WrestleMania 34.

The former UFC Women's Bantamweight champion signed a contract with WWE at the start of 2018 and made her first appearance at the Royal Rumble.

She subsequently clashed with McMahon, in her role as Raw Commissioner, and Triple H, McMahon's husband, at Elimination Chamber, with the incident ending with Rousey putting Triple H through a table.

On Monday's TV taping of Raw at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Rousey confirmed she wanted to face McMahon at WrestleMania 34 and was entitled to as her contract allows her to face any active opponent of her choosing.

Angle, the Raw General Manager, who had been assaulted by Triple H on last week's Raw, then requested to tag with her with Triple H being added to the match.

The match was set and a physical altercation ended with Angle and Rousey standing tall over Triple H and McMahon.

The tag match will be part of the card at WrestleMania 34, which takes place on April 8 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

The only other confirmed match at present is WWE Universal champion Brock Lesnar defending his title against Roman Reigns.
