Ronda Rousey will receive her first Raw Women's Championship match next month at Money in the Bank, it has been confirmed today.
As per WWE.com, Rousey is to face current title holder Nia Jax in Rosemont's Allstate Arena on June 17. It will be just the second official match of the former UFC star's burgeoning wrestling career, following her in-ring debut five weeks ago at WrestleMania 34.
The announcement comes after Jax issued a challenge to the newest member of the WWE female division while on the red carpet at NBCUniversal Upfront. Later in the same event, Rousey accepted the invitation, promising to provide stern opposition to the so-called Irresistible Force.
Following news earlier today that AJ Styles will once again defend the WWE Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura, four matches have now been formally announced for Money in the Bank.
The remaining two bouts - from which the show derives its name - will see stars from both Raw and SmackDown fight to win a guaranteed title shot at a time of their choosing. Ember Moon and Charlotte Flair have been confirmed for the women's edition, while Braun Strowman, Finn Balor, The Miz and Rusev will compete in the men's.
