WWE now faces the task of transforming the cordial first meeting between Nia Jax and Rousey into a compelling storyline over the next few weeks - and many fans on Twitter are questioning why Rousey is wrestling for a title so soon.

She is set to battle Nia Jax in her first championship match at the "Money in the Bank" Pay-Per-View on June 17 in Chicago, where the pair will compete for the Raw Women's Championship, a title Jax now holds.

Rousey's title shot against Nia Jax certainly comes in as a big surprise to me and I'm actually excited to see how all of this eventually plays out and if Rousey will indeed manage to get her hands on a championship belt in the WWE. This will be the first time when Rousey will be competing in a singles match.

The disclosures could help USA carriers make the case that the airline is potentially getting unfair government subsidies. Delta called off its Atlanta-Dubai flight in 2015, saying it was because of unfair competition from the Gulf carriers.

Rousey made a point in her response to Nia Jax when she said, "There are other women who deserve the opportunity". The news of Rousey's match against Jax was unexpected as Rousey appeared to be working alongside Natalya against antagonist Mickie James.

The match will be only Rousey's second for the company, following her debut appearance at WrestleMania, where she teamed with Kurt Angle to beat Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

Although the segment where Jax challenged Rousey was sloppy even already even though Charlotte Flair did her best to keep it going, it was still well-written to a certain extent. It seems that Nia Jax was nothing more than a transitional champion. She would retain it at WWE Backlash by defeating Bliss again.
