Monday night on Raw, Sasha Banks earned an opportunity to face raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at the Royal Rumble event on January 27.
WWE has posted the official preview for this match on their website:
At Royal Rumble, Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey will square off against “The Boss” Sasha Banks, who earned her title opportunity with an electric victory against Nia Jax.
Focused on looking forward on the first Raw of 2019, Rousey came to the premiere episode of Alexa Bliss’ new talk show “Moment of Bliss” poised to handpick the Superstar she considered to be “the unsung hero of Monday Night Raw” as her next challenger. That competitor was Sasha Banks.
Nia Jax quickly took exception to BEING overshadowed, however, and crashed Rousey’s appearance to demand a championship rematch against The Baddest Woman on the Planet, claiming that they had unfinished business from their title fight at WWE TLC.
This prompted the arrival of Banks, who made it clear that she would be happy to defeat The Rowdy One. And when Jax stepped in her way, Sasha said she was ready to topple The Irresistible Force right there and then for the right to do so.
The McMahon family responded by sending a referee to the ring for an impromptu one-on-one matchup pitting Banks against Jax, which would determine who would challenge Rousey at Royal Rumble 2019. The Boss reigned supreme against The Irresistible Force, setting up a first-time-ever title clash between Rousey and Banks.
Boasting unmistakable swagger and a knack for making history, Sasha Banks earned her title bout in thrilling fashion, but can she contend with Ronda Rousey, who has dominated the competition since arriving on Raw? Don’t miss the epic battle for the Raw Women’s Championship at Royal Rumble, Sunday, Jan. 27, at 7 ET/4 PT, streaming live on WWE Network!
