Why WWE couldn't wait for Ronda Rousey's first title match

Rousey Set For Major Match!

Ronda Rousey mentioned in a recent interview that she was challenged by Nia Jax with the Raw Women's Title being on the line at the upcoming WWE Money in the Bank PPV event.

While Ronda Rousey has only had one match in WWE, she shocked the world in that match by putting in an incredible performance on her WrestleMania debut against Stephanie McMahon and Triple H alongside Kurt Angle.

This comes as a shock to many who thought WWE may hold off on a Rousey title run until WrestleMania 35 next year, after taking time to build "The Baddest Woman on the Planet".

Nia Jax won the RAW Women's Championship on the same show, defeating Alexa Bliss. While you can question the timing and execution, the added eyeballs will get WWE the result it is looking for.

Also announced for MITB, Shinsuke "kick him in the" Nakamura will once again face AJ Styles for the WWE Championship.

Locals: peace further away as U.S. embassy moves to Jerusalem
Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner , both advisers to the president, attended the opening ceremonies . Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Trump in his address that "by recognising history you have made history".

Powell's POV: I guess this also means that Rousey and Jax won't be appearing in person at today's Raw television taping in London.

Nia, however, isn't buying all the Lady of the Manor talk and made clear that while they will be nice to each other outside the ring, "all bets are off" once they get inside the ring.

I've never been in a ring with somebody like Ronda.

Rousey earned a large amount of praise for her performance at WrestleMania, in which she traded blows with both McMahon and her husband in a match many selected as the best of the night.

The Money In The Bank pay-per-view event takes place on Sunday, June 17, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois at the Allstate Arena and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets. Glad to say I got to see this up close!
