Why WWE couldn't wait for Ronda Rousey's first title match

Ronda Rousey will take on Raw women's champion Nia Jax for her title at the Money In the Bank event on June 17, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

The Irresistible Force revealed she wants to put her title on the line against Rousey at WWE Money in the Bank, much to the surprise of The Baddest Woman on the Planet.

While both women being faces isn't necessarily a deal-breaker, it's hard to imagine WWE would book Rousey to lose her first singles match. The WWE likely doesn't want Rousey in match as risky as the Money in the Bank ladder match yet they still want her on the pay-per-view in some capacity. Never one to back down from either a challenge or an opportunity, a bewildered Rousey agreed to the match.

Jax is the current Raw women's champion, beating Alexa Bliss for the belt at WrestleMania.

WWE had a presence at Monday's NBC Uprfront presentation in Manhattan, New York. Rousey brings an intimidating aura to the ring and using her patented armbar to submit Jax in a championship setting would be convincing. Keep in mind that WWE has yet to officially announce the match for this show but will likely be doing so here shortly.

Powell's POV: I guess this also means that Rousey and Jax won't be appearing in person at today's Raw television taping in London.
