Ronda Rousey will challenge for Nia Jax's Raw Women's Championship at Money In The Bank this Sunday, but could fall victim to a heel turn.
According to Dave Meltzer in this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the company may have Natalya turn on her supposed friend during or after the Jax match, kicking off a summer program between the two.
This has been hinted for weeks. Nattie and Rousey have spent the past few months buddying up, and Natalya turned face specifically to join forces with 'Rowdy' after WrestleMania 34. Ronda has since saved her new friend on several occasions, including a beatdown at Jax's hands a couple of weeks ago, which could be part of the turn.
Nattie sold a knee injury while working Nia on Raw, and WWE could go with her faking it to trick 'The Baddest Woman On The Planet.' Still, there's no word on how the turn might play out. It Natalya wins the women's MITB briefcase and Rousey defeats Jax, WWE could pull an immediate cash-in, or they may go for a straightforward interference in a title match that'll likely be rife with smoke and mirrors.
We'll see what happens on Sunday, but at this stage, it'd be a surprise if Natalya didn't turn on Rousey.
A caffeine-dependent life-form from the frozen wastes of north east Scotland. He once tried to start a revolution but didn't print enough pamphlets, so hardly anyone turned up. Give him a follow @andyhmurray. You'll have a great time. Maybe.
