Ronda Rousey’s Survivor Series opponent revealed on WWE Monday Night Raw
Ronda Rousey will face Becky Lynch at Survivor Series after the match for the November 18 pay-per-view was confirmed on WWE Monday Night RAW.
During the first hour of RAW, a clip was played of Rousey, who holds the RAW women’s belt, and Lynch, the SmackDown women’s champion, giving a joint interview in the post-show of WWE Evolution – the all women’s PPV on Sunday night.
It ended tensely with Lynch promising she would see Rousey soon – and the WWE confirmed it would be as soon as Survivor Series.
Lynch stoked the fire on Wednesday morning when she tweeted a screen grab of a Twitter notification that Rousey had followed her on the social platform.
The SmackDown champ captioned the tweet: "She tried."
It was used as a double entendre after Rousey ‘followed’ Lynch’s match with Charlotte Flair by beating Nikki Bella at Evolution.
The match will mark the second year in succession the WWE have pitted the women’s champions from RAW and SmackDown against one another at Survivor Series.
Charlotte Flair defeat Alexa Bliss by submission in 2017.
It was revealed at the Royal Rumble earlier this year that Rousey had signed a full-time contract with the WWE, and she made her in-ring debut at WrestleMania 34 in a mixed tag team match with Kurt Angle against Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.
She ensured the win for her team by forcing Stephanie to submit, and Rousey went on to win the WWE RAW women’s championship at SummerSlam on August 19 against Alexa Bliss.
Rousey shot to stardom in the UFC and has won 12 of her 14 professional MMA fights.
The 31-year-old recently defended the WWE’s controversial Crown Jewel PPV in Saudi Arabia scheduled to take place on November 2.
"I think that pulling out of the ‘Crown Jewel’ would be the wrong move because I think that this is an opportunity to be able to share our culture," she told TMZ.
"In times of adversity between two countries, it’s the absolute wrong time to pull away. We can find what we have in common and be able to understand each other more."
