WWE have had a long-standing ban on weapon shots to the head after several concussion-related injuries to its stars but the Lass Kicker ignored the rule last night.
The pay-per-view had already witnessed a number of controversial incidents including Carmella being taunted over her affair allegations with Corey Graves.
Later in the event, Vince McMahon's son Shane lost his tag-team title to Jimmy Uso, days after the star had been arrested for "squaring up to cops in a drunken dispute."
Rousey had just finished a routine title defence against Ruby Riott on her way to main-eventing WrestleMania 35 before an 'injured' and 'suspended Lynch returned.
The Lass Kicker, who revealed her disgust at being replaced in WWE's extravaganza in April by Charlotte Flair, first went to work on The Queen with vicious crutch shots.
Lynch then turned her attention to the Raw Women's Champion and left her lying with several savage blows to the head before she was escorted out by security.
Shocking pictures then surfaced online that showed Rousey bleeding from a nasty wound in her head, suggesting Lynch may be faced with some punishment backstage.
Back in November, Lynch herself was left bloodied with a broken nose and a concussion after a reckless strike from Nia Jax that saw her ruled out of Survivor Series.
Speaking to Bleacher Report, Jax recalled how she feared of losing her job due to the accidental injury that Lynch sustained.
Jax said: “Everything’s an opportunity in our business, whether you think it is or not.
“When the incident with Becky happened, it probably was one of those moments that I really was like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is a huge turning point in my career. This could go extremely horribly for me and might be the end of my career.'
"Or we can turn this into something pretty cool for not just me, but for others that are involved.'”
While Becky Lynch is likely to escape punishment, WWE has notably had a long-standing ban on weapon shots to the head after several concussion-related injuries.
Fans online were shocked at seeing the former UFC champion bleeding so heavily with one writing: "Christ on a bike Rousey's head is mangled from the crutch shots."
Another tweeted: "Whoa, Ronda Rousey looks like she took quite a shot – she was bleeding pretty good from her head."
One more added: "Ronda Rousey has some new colour in her hair."
