With Super Tuesday only 48 hours removed, the four remaining Republican candidates took the stage for yet another debate. As expected, no one pulled any punches and what viewers witnessed resembled more of a WWE wrestling match rather than a discussion about the future of the United States.

Pre-game fight

Hours before the start of the debate Thursday night, former 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney addressed a crowd of conservatives in Utah.

While Romney has been critical of current leader of the pack Donald Trump in the past, his most recent comments took his opposition to a whole new level. Referring to Trump as a "phony" and a "fraud," Romney also attacked the billionaire real estate mogul for his controversial university in New York City. "His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University," Romney told those in attendance.

In response, Trump hit back at Romney, referring to him as a "failed candidate" who ran "one of the worst races in presidential history." The Trump-Romney spat set the stage for the event hosted by Fox News in Detroit, Michigan on March 3.

Debate disaster

Fox News hosts Megyn Kelly, Chris Wallace, and Bret Baier were chosen to moderate, which ended up being the most eventful so far during the primary season. The questions were quickly fired at Trump, who responded by disavowing the recent support of former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke, while doubling down his thoughts about Romney.

Moments later, Trump and Rubio got into an altercation, with the Florida senator's recent criticism being brought up. Rubio recently made a comment about Trump's small hands, hinting that his genitalia could also be little.

In response, the former host of "The Apprentice" reassured the audience about his private part size, stating, "I guarantee you there's no problem."

The gloves come off

Over the course of the next two hours, there were times when, with the exception of Ohio Gov. John Kasich, the candidates were ready to get psychical. Trump referred to Ted Cruz as "lyin' Ted," which resulted in a roar from the crowd.

The most interesting of the exchanges came when Trump referred to Rubio as "Little Marco." The young Florida senator had a nickname up his sleeve, calling the GOP front runner "Big Don."

When the topic of Trump University was highlighted, the fiery billionaire was under attack from his opponents as the moderators presented facts that contradict the campaign's previous position. When Cruz chimed in following Rubio's attack, Trump started to lose his cool, shouting, "It's a minor case!

It's a minor civil case!" Cruz attempted to calm his opponent down, suggesting he "count to 10."

Short on details

When each candidate was pressed on details and policy, they didn't appear interested, mostly telling viewers to go to their campaign website for more information. Vague answers were given on the economy, foreign policy, and healthcare, with the candidates turning the conversation back to personal attacks.
