WWE Announces Ronda Rousey's Opponent For Money In The Bank PPV

Ronda Rousey Nia Jax

The match was made after Jax challenged Rousey during a joint E! While you can question the timing and execution, the added eyeballs will get WWE the result it is looking for. WWE works best when the product in the ring is believable and, in Rousey's case, a victory over Jax is not out of the question.

What could go wrong with Rousey getting this shot so early?

While Rousey is new to the sport, her mixed martial arts background makes her fun to watch in the ring, potentially creating an exciting battle at the next big PPV.

Ronda Rousey accepted the challenge while sounding like someone invited to the wedding of the century.

Rousey had her first and only match at WrestleMania 34, teaming up with Kurt Angle to face Stephanie McMahon and Triple H in one of the high points of the evening.

He said fighters launched attacks form multiple directions, after which they overran several checkpoints in the city. Farah Province also borders Helmand Province, where the Taliban controls several districts.

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".

Just when Ronda's interview was going on at the event where she was talking about her WWE debut, her Wrestlemania moment, she was joined by Charlotte Flair.

There's also the question of how ready Rousey is both in and out of the ring.

It was at that event that Jax won the title, beating her former friend Alexa Bliss to raise the gold in New Orleans. It's worth asking if Rousey has the skills to perform across from Jax, whose style features powerful moves and throws, and - should she win - be comfortable in more speaking roles on television.

Since Jax is the RAW Women's Champion, it's hard not to believe that the title won't be on the line.
