WWE this week announced that Ronda Rousey next's match in the WWE will take place at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view next month, but ever since her arrival in the company back at the Royal Rumble in January, she is yet to have a match on Monday Night Raw.
Rousey has only ever had one WWE match since her debut at the Royal Rumble, which was her mixed tag match alongside Kurt Angle at WrestleMania 34 last month against Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.
Rowdy will be having her next match soon when she faces Nia Jax for the Raw Women's Championship at Money in the Bank in June, but she is yet to have a match on Raw despite being a superstar in the WWE now for three months. That, however, could soon all change.
According to WKBW in Buffalo, via Ringside News, Rousey will make her in-ring debut on Raw on July 16 at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo. This is noteworthy because there has been much speculation as to how WWE would be using Ronda after they announced she had signed a full-time contract with the company.
Many reports have suggested Rowdy would remain as a special attraction, similar to how the company books Brock Lesnar. It's too early to call if this is how WWE plans on using her, but we could get a clearer indication of this after Money in the Bank and as we approach SummerSlam.
Rousey wasn't part of this week's Raw in London as she was attending NBC Upfronts. She should be part of all of the upcoming episodes, however, as she will be needed in order to promote her upcoming Raw Women's title match at Money in the Bank against Jax.
It will be interesting to see as well if Rowdy wins at the Money in the Bank as well, as her corresponding match on Raw on July 16 could either be a qualifier for a match at SummerSlam, since it takes place a day after Extreme Rules, or it could be a title defense if she wins the Raw Women's Championship.
We'll have to wait and see how the situation pans out, but for now, we know we only have to wait two more months before we finally see Rousey compete inside the ring on WWE's red brand.
