Breaking news: Rousey challenging for women's title at MITB Submitted by Aaron Rift on 05/14/2018 at 12:35 PM
At the 2018 NBCUniversal Upfront event, Nia Jax challenged Ronda Rousey to a match at the upcoming Money in the Bank PPV. Rousey commented on the challenge in an interview with eonline.com:
"We are very civil and professional ladies, so Nia did just challenge me for Money in the Bank to come after her title," Rousey told E! News on the red carpet. "I happily oblige respectfully, so I can sit next to her."
"We're professionals, so when we get in there, there's a job to be done," Rousey added. "When we're outside of the ring, then we can still be respectful to each other. We all have the same goals. 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."
Nia Jax also commented on the match:
"I've never been in a ring with somebody like Ronda," Jax told E! 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."
Jax added, "We can still get along for now, but once we get in the ring, it's over. All bets are off, right?"
