Rousey Set For Major Match!

Rousey Set For Major Match!

E! News is reporting that the MMA fighter-turned-WWE superstar has been challenged by Nia Jax to what promises to be an epic Money in the Bank match, and the two confirmed their participation in a very civil joint interview.

Many fans were surprised when the news of the title bout broke on Monday, given how it will be Rousey's second career professional wrestling match. Rousey will take on Mickie James in non-televised matches later this week as part of the European tour. Never one to back down from either a challenge or an opportunity, a bewildered Rousey agreed to the match.

As for Nia Jax, she won the RAW Women's Championship in a dominant performance at WrestleMania against Alexa Bliss. Stephanie McMahon appeared and touted the WWE women's evolution.

Besides Ronda Rousey vs. Nia Jax, other Money in the Bank matches that were announced today include Shinsuke Nakamura vs. AJ Styles for the men's title match and Braun Strowman vs. Finn Balor vs. "I happily oblige respectfully, so I can sit next to her".


We're professionals, so when we get in there, there's a job to be done.

This comes as a shock to many who thought WWE may hold off on a Rousey title run until WrestleMania 35 next year, after taking time to build "The Baddest Woman on the Planet". "Let's see how Rowdy @RondaRousey can get", Jax wrote. We all have the same goals.

What are your thoughts on WWE putting Rousey in a match against Jax at the MITB PPV?

Tune in to WWE Money in the Bank on Sunday, June 17, streaming live on WWE Network. "All bets are off, right?"
