Stephanie says the WWE Universe is still in stunned disbelief at the challenge heard round the world.  Nia Jax will defend the WWE Raw Women’s Title against one of the top box office draws, Ronda Rousey.  It does not happen until they sign the contract.

Stephanie brings out Nia Jax first. Stephanie congratulates Nia on winning the title at Wrestlemania and defending at Backlash.  Stephanie says that Nia has boldly chosen her next opponent. Stephanie brings out Ronda Rousey. Ronda asks Stephanie how her arm feels. Stephanie asks Ronda how does it feel to leap frog over everyone in the women’s division to get this title match.


Ronda says that Nia challenged her for the title.

Stephanie asks why did Nia challenge her?  Was it to make a name at Ronda’s expense?  Ronda has never been in a singles match in WWE.  You are ripe for the picking.  You come from a world of bantamweights and flyweights.  There are no weight divisions.  Nia is bigger, stronger, and more powerful than you.  Stephanie says that NIa knows that Ronda doesn’t like to lose so if she wins, then Ronda will tuck tail and leave.

Stephanie says that Ronda knows it took you 15 or 20 minutes to beat Alexa when she is so much smaller than Alexa.  Why did it take so long to get where you are?  Is it because you are lazy?  If you are lazy, how long will it take Ronda to get you in that arm bar?  That is if Ronda can put that arm bar on you.  Can she physically do that?
