Ronda Rousey thrown through a table on Raw

Still learning hard and fast and on the fly, the former UFC women's bantamweight champion took her first bump like a seasoned veteran.

The Authority (Triple H and Stephanie McMahon) got the jump on both Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey on Monday night during the Raw leading up to the highly-anticipated WrestleMania 34, per Bleacher Report.

As the quartet posed for photos after a quick exchange of insults - specifically McMahon drilled Rousey about her losses to Holly Holm, and Amanda Nunes - Triple H attacked Angle with a microphone from behind. Rousey then choked Triple H - but Stephanie McMahon lifted her up and dumped her through one of the tables.

It was a clear message sent by the Raw commissioner, and it gives the power couple the upper hand heading into Sunday's event. However, now you have to imagine that McMahon has a lot more hurt coming her way at WrestleMania when Rousey gets her hands on her than already planned.

The upcoming tag-team match between Angle and Rousey and archvillain duo of The Authority is building as one of the more anticipated bouts on the WrestleMania 34 bill. 

Seeing McMahon get the jump on Rousey embeds a little more intrigue into the match, considering the former UFC champion was starting to be built up as a squasher - dominating any woman she came across. 

Improving with each week, Rousey taking her first bump - through a table no less - was highly impressive.
