Ronda Rousey might have her next challenger laid out before her, Raw Women’s Champion Nia Jax.
At the 2018 NBC Upfronts, per E! News, Nia Jax is said to have issued a challenge to the “Baddest Woman On The Planet (Jury is out on whether or not Nunez and Holm agree with that moniker)” at this June’s Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View.
When asked, Ronda said “We are very civil and professional ladies, so Nia did just challenge me for Money in the Bank to come after her title, I happily oblige respectfully, so I can sit next to her.”
“I’ve never been in a ring with somebody like Ronda,” Jax told E! News. “She’s one of a kind, so there definitely has to be an alternation to my regimen and I’m looking forward to it.”
WWE has yet to make it official, but it looks like the gauntlet has been thrown.
WWE has now made it official, posting ‘”The Irresistible Force revealed she wants to put her title on the line against Rousey at WWE Money in the Bank, much to the surprise of The Baddest Woman on the Planet. Never one to back down from either a challenge or an opportunity, a bewildered Rousey agreed to the match.
This will be Rousey’s first title opportunity since joining WWE earlier this year. When we last saw her compete on WWE TV, she teamed with Raw General Manager Kurt Angle to defeat Stephanie McMahon and Triple H in a Mixed Tag Team Match at WrestleMania.”
