Ronda Rousey Challenged By WWE Champion For Title Match

Ronda Rousey Challenged By WWE Champion For Title Match

Despite some indications that Ronda Rousey would feud with Mickie James, WWE made a decision to put the former UFC champion in a big match, perhaps more significant than her debut.

The news didn't come on the company's television programs, but by Jax challenging Rousey to her first title match during a WWE video at the NBCUniversal upfronts at Radio City.

Ronda had joined WWE earlier this year and had her first match against Stephanie McMahon and Triple H, with Olympic gold medalist and WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle by his side in a Mixed-Tag-Team match at Wrestlemania. Never one to back down from either a challenge or an opportunity, a bewildered Rousey agreed to the match.

"We can still get along for now, but once we get in the ring, it's over".

Also announced for MITB, Shinsuke "kick him in the" Nakamura will once again face AJ Styles for the WWE Championship. Later in the same event, Rousey accepted the invitation, promising to provide stern opposition to the so-called Irresistible Force. An excited Flair encouraged Rousey to accept and she did. We all have the same goals.

Although Jax doesn't necessarily need the title to succeed in WWE, having her successfully defend against Bliss only to drop the belt to Rousey would also diminish her status as one of the more popular wrestlers and take away from the anti-bullying platform both she and the WWE have been working hard to promote over the past several weeks. "All bets are off, right?"

Tune in to WWE Money in the Bank on Sunday, June 17, streaming live on WWE Network. "We're all trying to lift the women's division and to show people that we have more to offer than they've given us credit for in the past". News. "She's one of a kind, so there definitely has to be an alternation to my regimen and I'm looking forward to it". Glad to say I got to see this up close!
