• Real Reason Behind Ronda Rousey Being Booked At Money In The Bank 2018
WrestleVotes recently reported that WWE officials put Ronda Rousey in a Title match at Money In The Bank 2018 because there was nothing else for her to do and WWE didn’t want to ignore Rousey for another PPV (she didn’t work Backlash or Greatest Royal Rumble).
WWE officials didn’t want Rousey to be in a Ladder match at this point in her career and they certainly didn’t want her losing a Money in the Bank qualifying match. So they decided to put her in a Title match by doing a storyline where Nia Jax challenges her.
However, PWInsider is reporting that this isn’t the only reason WWE booked Rousey at Money In The Bank 2018. Rousey got booked for Money In The Bank 2018 PPV because Brock Lesnar is not working this PPV and Ronda is the next top draw after Lesnar that can draw mainstream attention to this upcoming PPV event.
WWE is teasing a segment between RAW Women’s Champion Nia Jax and Rousey on the next episode of RAW.
Below is what WWE posted:
Nia Jax prepares to face The Baddest Woman on the Planet
“Last Monday morning at the NBCUniversal Upfront in New York City, Nia Jax chose Ronda Rousey to be her next challenger for the Raw Women’s Championship, and Rousey agreed to do battle at WWE Money in the Bank on Sunday, June 17.
The encounter seemed amicable enough, but one has to wonder what’s going through the minds of The Irresistible Force and The Baddest Woman on the Planet as the bout approaches. Expect some fallout from last week’s challenge this Monday night.
