Rousey has been teaming with Natalya and will face Mickie James on WWE's imminent European tour, so it appeared that we would potentially see that story unfold on television in the near future. Since she debuted in January at the "Royal Rumble", Rousey has been booked as a powerful figure, gotten an overwhelmingly positive reaction from fans and has lived up to her "Baddest Woman on the Planet" moniker.

Jax added, "We can still get along for now, but once we get in the ring, it's over". WWE works best when the product in the ring is believable and, in Rousey's case, a victory over Jax is not out of the question.

This will be Rousey's first title opportunity since joining WWE earlier this year.
There's also the question of how ready Rousey is both in and out of the ring. But Monday's news regarding her June 18 match against Jax is somewhat surprising. However, if Rousey is set to win the title off Jax now, then all bets are off.
