Over the summer, Ronda Rousey had her first WWE title opportunity at the Money In The Bank pay-per-view. Rousey challenged then-Raw Women’s Champion Nia Jax in a surprisingly good title bout. However, MITB briefcase winner Alexa Bliss attacked both women, before cashing in her briefcase to pin Jax and win the title herself.
Of course, Rousey would eventually defeat Bliss for the title at SummerSlam, getting a bit of revenge for the incident. However, at WWE Evolution last month, Jax won a Battle Royal to solidify herself as the next challenger for the Raw Women’s Title. This sets up a rematch between her and Rousey down the road.
While speaking to SportsBible recently, Jax talked about working with Rousey at MITB, and their upcoming rematch:
“It was pretty incredible,” Jax said. “I was in there with one of the greatest athletes in the world and she is, being in the ring with her, you can tell.
“And she has a great work ethic, she’s incredibly strong and I feel like we have some serious unfinished business that I really want to get back to where we started. I feel like we started something really special and it can only get better so I can’t wait to see where it goes.”
