Rousey teamed up with Kurt Angle, the Raw General Manager, to face Triple H, WWE's COO, and Stephanie McMahon, Commissioner of Raw brand, in a mixed match challenge event.

In a confrontation that was nearly awkwardly polite, Nia Jax approached Rousey during an interview with Cathy Kelley.

The match between Rousey and Jax, two heavyweights of WWE, will one of the highlights of the next month's main event and one can expect the storyline to continue even beyond WWE Money in the Bank event.
