Ronda Rousey's first opponent for singles match revealed

WWE announced Monday at the NBCUniversal Upfront that Rousey will face WWE Raw Women's Champion Nia Jax at the Money In The Bank pay-per-view on June 17th in Chicago.

During last night's NBC Universal Upfronts event in New York City, current Raw Women's Champion Nia Jax chose to pick the next challenger for her championship belt by issuing a challenge to former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey, noting that the two ladies should finally get the chance to square off against each other at this year's Money in the Bank pay-per-view.

Nia Jax defended the title with a win at Backlash.

Simultaneously, the country would make preparations to restart its programme of nuclear enrichment, he added, as per CNN. Changing the regime in Iran is "not the policy of the administration", Bolton said on ABC.


Rousey was stunned by Jax herself walking to her to challenge the professional wrestler and she was happy to have a shot at the WWE women's title. This will be the first time when Rousey will be competing in a singles match. The champion informed Rousey that she has an obligatory title defense at Money In The Bank and wants to face Rousey, but Rousey initially deferred the opportunity to the other women on the roster. She got her hands on the title after defeating Alex Bliss at Wrestlemania 34. There have been four Raw shows since WrestleMania and there hasn't been any sign that the WWE was going in that direction. But there is also the issue that anyone in a match against Nia Jax has a stronger likelihood of being injured just because she is so powerful and her move set is extremely intense.

Therefore although you can never really predict what will happen when it comes to WWE's booking decisions, with such a valuable asset like Ronda Rousey in the situation things need to be placed in a very careful order because any number of things could go wrong. "Again, Nia Jax is a babyface even though she didn't get cheered in her last match at all".
