Money In The Bank

Many New WWE Money In The Bank Title Match Confirmed

The upcoming WWE Money in the Bank premium live event will feature SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey vs. Natalya. On this week’s SmackDown, Rousey discussed her upcoming match with Natalya, uncovering that her mother taught her the armbar and Natalya stole the sniper rifle from her uncle, WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart. Shotzi then interrupted Rousey, resulting in an impromptu fight between both the two women.

After a quick victory, Rousey was hit by Natalya, who put the winner in a sharpshooter. Despite her pained expression, Rousey rejected to tap out. Following the section, WWE announced that Rousey will protect her title against Natalya on July 2 in Las Vegas. Natalya won the six-pack challenge last week, defeating Aliyah, Raquel Rodriguez, Shotzi, Xia Li, and Shayna Baszler.

Rousey has held the SmackDown Women’s Championship since May, when she defeated Charlotte Flair in an I Quit Match at the WrestleMania Backlash live event. Her only broadcast live title defence since then came on May 13’s SmackDown, when she crushed Raquel Rodriguez after issuing an open challenge. Last Saturday, Rousey defended her title against Natalya at a WWE live event in Champaign, Illinois.
