Rousey Set For Major Match!

Rousey Set For Major Match!

Jax and Rousey are now in New York City for the NBCUniversal Upfronts, where they're promoting the Women's Revolution.

The Twitter account WrestleVotes, which has broken the news on a number of backstage stories in the past, wrote on Monday "Asked about the Ronda Rousey v Nia Jax rumors happening at MITB & not SummerSlam".

Ronda Rousey replied confirming this match and accepting the challenge for Money In The Bank. There was some speculation that WWE would announce their new television deal as part of the festivities today, but that has not happened.

The upcoming pay-per-view is set for Sunday, June 17, in Chicago.

Ronda Rousey has been a hot topic of conversation in the WWE ever since she defected from MMA.

We're professionals, so when we get in there, there's a job to be done.

According to the WWE, they've had faith in the fighter since she teamed with Raw General Manager Kurt Angle to defeat Stephanie McMahon and Triple H in a Mixed Tag Team Match at WrestleMania. "I happily oblige respectfully, so I can sit next to her". We all have the same goals. While you can question the timing and execution, the added eyeballs will get WWE the result it is looking for. "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". "All bets are off, right?" Glad to say I got to see this up close!

At first, I assumed this was just talking up to the media, but it is official! Why would WWE not favor a slower build of Rousey's career that would have given her time to grow as a performer and a character?
