Ronda Rousey vs. Alexa Bliss set for WWE SummerSlam


Ronda Rousey’s next match has been set, and it’s for SummerSlam.

She’s set to face off against Raw women’s champion Alexa Bliss based off of what happened tonight during Raw. Despite being suspended from the program, Rousey came out and jumped Bliss and Mickie James who were cutting a promo based on Bliss’ win last night at Extreme Rules. 

After a pull apart brawl, Kurt Angle came out and confronted Rousey, saying she needed to go home and cool off until Wednesday, when her suspension would be over. Constable Baron Corbin came out and said Angle needed to be more strict. Angle reluctantly agreed, suspending Rousey for another week. Despite this, Angle went ahead and gave her the title match for SummerSlam.

In storyline, Rousey’s been looking to get her hands on Alexa Bliss since Money in the Bank, when Bliss attacked her with the Money in the Bank briefcase right before pinning Nia Jax to regain the Raw women’s title. The following night on Raw, Rousey retaliated by putting Bliss through a table, which started the initial suspension.
