Why Ronda Rousey vs. Nia Jax at Money in the Bank was a huge success

If there was anyone that stole the show last week following the Money in the Bank event, it was Ronda Rousey.

There were plenty of questions being raised when The Baddest Woman on the Planet was awarded a RAW Women's Championship match from nowhere, especially since the contest in Chicago was her first-ever singles match.


The questions of whether Rousey deserved the opportunity or not also seemed to be futile, as the WWE possibly backed themselves into a corner heading into the event.

If Rousey didn't get the title match, then she would have been forced to miss another significant event which might have turned the fans against her after it was claimed she would be a full-time superstar.

At the same time, there was no way WWE was going to be throwing her into a Money in the Bank ladder match either.

Although there was the whole inexperience factor with Nia Jax, the two knocked it out of the park before Alexa Bliss decided to steal the show by cashing in her Money in the Bank contract to leave as the new champion.

However, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has revealed by Rousey's match did end up going down so well, and the same formula was used for her WrestleMania 34 match where she teamed up with Kurt Angle to defeat Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.


According to Rajah, Finlay and Tyson Kidd were the agents/producers that were given the task of putting together the Money in the Bank women's ladder match, as well as Rousey vs. Jax. 

The source is reporting that Kidd was said to be the one responsible for most of the spots, and WWE decided to remove all women from the house shows so that they could squeeze in enough practice.

Rousey was in brilliant hands, though, as the match was laid out by Finlay step-by-step and was also practiced extensively over the weekend to make sure Rousey impressed.

With Carmella and Asuka, however, the match wasn't practiced.

What this shows is that the WWE didn't really place any value on the SmackDown Women's Championship match.


Instead, the aim was to ensure all of the praise was going to Rousey as mainstream media was going to be tuning in, so WWE needed to make sure that she impressed.

It's safe to say that they succeeded in their mission as Rousey ended all doubts towards her in-ring abilities.

What do you make of the WWE practicing Rousey vs. Jax and having Finlay lay out the match? Have YOUR say in the comments section below.
