Ronda Rousey and Nia Jax hinted at a possible title match at Money In The Bank during a joint interview in New York City today with E! News.
“We are very civil and professional ladies, so Nia did just challenge me for Money in the Bank to come after her title. I happily oblige respectfully, so I can sit next to her,” Rousey said.
Jax then replied, “We can still get along for now, but once we get in the ring, it’s over. All bets are off, right?”
They remained cordial together during the interview, neither woman really cutting a promo on the other. Rousey put this down to professionalism.
“We’re professionals,” she said. So when we get in there, there’s a job to be done. When we’re outside of the ring, then we can still be respectful to each other. We all have the same goals. We’re all trying to lift the women’s division and to show people that we have more to offer than they’ve given us credit for in the past.”
While WWE has made no official mention of a possible bout between the two women, Jax seemed keen on the idea.
“I’ve never been in a ring with somebody like Ronda,” she said. “She’s one of a kind, so there definitely has to be an alternation to my regimen and I’m looking forward to it.”
