WWE reveals Ronda Rousey's opponent for 'Money In the Bank' PPV event

Rousey had a tremendous showing at Wrestlemania, which was almost assuredly going to lead to an eventual WWE women's championship match with champion Nia Jax.

The WWE is forgoing any usual or believable trek into a Women's Championship shot for Ronda Rousey.


She'll challenge Nia Jax for the title at Money In the Bank this summer.


During the NBCUniversal production upfronts, they used Charlotte Flair in a promo that brought together Rousey and champion Nia Jax in an incredibly awkward, kayfabe-toeing challenge and acceptance for a match at the June event.

This challenge came earlier than expected... but I was born ready...Ill see you at #MITB

It adds visibility for the three biggest women superstars to make the announcement, as such a mainstream event; however, it was exactly a good look for them to be seen walking away giggling with each other on-air.


It will be intriguing to see how the WWE writing staff create heat between women that evidently like each other in real life. Will it even matter, in light of Rousey's popularity?
