With Ronda Rousey showing up and wrecking shop on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, resulting in a 30 day suspension, it was somewhat lost that WWE announced Nia Jax would be getting her rematch against Alexa Bliss for the Raw women’s championship next month.
Indeed, Jax is owed as much after Bliss cashed in her Money in the Bank contract on the very same show she won it, forcing a disqualification in Rousey’s title shot and then taking the title for herself just after. The match will take place at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view scheduled for Sun., July 15, 2018, at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
With Rousey out of the picture for the next month, it will give these two time to build to their next match — which feels like it will be their last one for a while — over the next few weeks.
Here’s the updated Extreme Rules match card:
- Roman Reigns vs. Bobby Lashley vs. TBA vs. TBA vs. TBA vs. TBA
- Alexa Bliss vs. Nia Jax (Raw women’s championship)
