At the end of the match, there was controversy because when Becky pinned Ronda, Ronda's shoulder wasn't fully down. Now, Ronda is discussing that moment with Kurt Angle. On the latest episode of his podcast, Ronda says she was actually trying hard to keep her shoulders down.

"I didn't think my shoulder was down," Ronda began. "I was trying to flatten out to put my shoulder more down. So like that's what was happening. I thought it was just the very top of my shoulder. So I was trying to shimmy down. So the actual backs of my shoulders were down and I didn't know that he had already started counting. So or that my shoulder came up during the shimmy. So I was trying to help, but it ended up being awesome because now I have a gripe to revisit."

Ronda Rousey wasn't the only one with a major WrestleMania 35. Kurt Angle also had a landmark event that night. He retired that night, at the hands of Baron Corbin. Learn more here.
