Alexa Bliss vs. Nia Jax set for WWE Extreme Rules

The first match has been confirmed for next month's Extreme Rules pay-per-view.

After interrupting Nia Jax vs. Ronda Rousey on Sunday and cashing in her Money in the Bank briefcase to win the Raw Women's Championship, Alexa Bliss will be defending the title against Jax at Extreme Rules. That was announced by Kurt Angle at the start of tonight's Raw, with him saying Jax is getting her automatic rematch.

Rousey came out during the segment with Bliss and Angle and went on a rampage after Bliss told her to get to the back of the line and called her an overhyped rookie. Rousey attacked Bliss, then did the same to Angle when he tried to stop her. She laid out referees, put Bliss through a table, and was given a 30-day suspension in storyline.

This will be the third time Bliss and Jax have faced each other on PPV this year. There wasn't a stipulation announced for the match.

Extreme Rules is taking place at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on July 15. It's WWE's final PPV before SummerSlam.
