Ronda Rousey Set to Wrestle Nia Jax for the Raw Women’s Championship

nia jax ronda rousey money in the bank title match

Nia Jax‘s challenger for the Raw Women’s Championship at Money in the Bank was locked in at the NBC Universal Upfront today in New York … and it’s none other than Ronda Rousey!

Jax made the challenge to Rousey on Monday during a red carpet interview at Radio City Music Hall and the former UFC champ was hesitant to accept after noting that many other women in WWE deserve a title shot first. However, Charlotte ultimately pushed her to say yes.

This will be Ronda Rousey’s first singles match in WWE. Her debut took place at WrestleMania 34 last month in a tag team effort that many considered to be the match of the night.

Think she’ll get the same kind of reaction with Nia Jax? Sound off below.

    I am not against this match up. But I would have saved it for Summerslam instead.

      Same. Let Rousey get a few TV matches under he belt first.
      Wouldn’t be surprised if they have Ronda lose thanks to a Nattie heel turn.

  • Red

    I think that it’s way too soon to try and put the belt on Rousey but now I also think she won’t keep it if she does win because Natalya will win the briefcase and cash in.
