So remember when they had Rousey cut that promo about wanting to earn everything and not just be given handouts (in kayfabe of course) and now in just her second? match she's being given a title shot?

There's no way this "match" isn't absolutely horrible. They should have just given her and Mickie a match, a veteran who could have carried her to a good singles match and then put her over to lend some credibility to her wrestling resumé

I mean they kinda fixed that "jumping in line" thing by just having Nia challenge her and be so determined about it. She even brought up how other girls deserved it more and Nia was like idgaf

Don't you add fuel for those geeks who kayfabe when its convenient for them, you can't pretend to be smart if you use their character to fit a narrative.

No bitch on that roster or in any rasslin company has sold a million PPV buys and Ronda did it 3x....if those geeks who tried booing her want a women's main a legend at Mania. ...HELLOOOOO who the fuck you think is going to get the women there???

Fair enough, i've not watched RAW so haven't seen that part but I still feel as though they could have had Ronda decline it
I don’t even think it was on Raw. It was a press conference or some shit

Well it is too rushed, but is to get MITB's buyrate up from what it normally would be I guess. Not sure what their long term plan is.

I think this will go to a non-finish of some sort. I don't see WWE putting the belt on Ronda in her first singles match. At the same time they'll want to project her. Think she gets the title a bit later in a rematch. Possibly at Summerslam.

Depends on when this match happens opposed to the women's ladder match.

I could see a cash in during this to protect Rousey, or a Rousey win because, let's face it. Nia Jax isn't ready to be a champion nor has the star power and drawing ability that Ronda Rousey has.
