Nia Jax vs. Ronda Rousey set for WWE Money in the Bank

In her second televised match, Ronda Rousey will be challenging for Nia Jax's Raw Women's Championship.

The match was announced for Money in the Bank after being set up as Rousey, Jax, and other WWE representatives appeared at this morning's NBC Universal upfronts in New York City. The storyline is that Jax issued the challenge at the upfronts and Rousey accepted it.
