At Money in the Bank, Alexa Bliss recaptured the Raw Women’s Championship after winning the Money in the Bank Ladder match and later cashing it in during the Raw Women’s title match between Nia Jax and Ronda Rousey.

The WWE have announced Jax is invoking her rematch clause against Bliss and Jax will get her rematch at next month’s Extreme Rules.

Read WWE.com‘s briefing of the match below:

At WWE Extreme Rules, Nia Jax will get her Raw Women’s Championship rematch against the very Superstar who stole the coveted title away from her at WWE Money in the Bank, her one-time “best friend” Alexa Bliss.

The extremely volatile history between the friends turned bitter foes reached its apex when Jax defeated Five Feet of Fury at WrestleMania to claim her first Raw Women’s Championship.

However, Alexa brought Nia’s title reign to a screeching halt at WWE Money in the Bank; after overcoming seven elite Raw and SmackDown LIVE competitors to become Ms. Money in the Bank, Little Miss Bliss stunned the WWE Universe by interrupting the Raw Women’s Championship Match between the reigning titleholder and Ronda Rousey on the same night. After ending their title bout with a briefcase attack on The Baddest Women on the Planet and The Irresistible Force, Alexa cashed in her newly-captured contract on the war-torn Nia to become a five-time Women’s Champion. 

The following night on Raw, an irate Rousey was suspended for putting her hands on Raw General Manager Kurt Angle and WWE officials as she brutalized the braggadocios new champion, but not before Angle had made the rematch between Jax and Bliss for WWE Extreme Rules.  

Bliss reinforced that she is a cunning and ruthless competitor, one who will stop at nothing to take her place at the head of the pack, but will she be ready for Nia, a truly imposing Superstar who possesses the talent and the attitude (not to mention the DNA) to reclaim her title in short order?

WWE’s Extreme Rules airs live Sunday, July 15, at 7 ET/4 PT on the WWE Network.
