Ronda Rousey is set for her next title defense at the WWE TLC PPV. Nia Jax is her opponent setting up a rematch from the Money in the Bank event. Some of the fans might not be happy with this repeated lineup. But WWE officials are in a mood to give a big push to the Samoan superstar as she is in the good books of the creative team.

Revealed: Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte part II date

There were rumors of a potential backstage heat going on around Nia Jax after the incident with Becky Lynch. The stiff punch to the face of Smackdown women’s champion caused a broken nose. This put her out of the Survivor Series PPV scrapping a dream match. Ronda Rousey vs. Becky Lynch was the lineup that we’ve missed.

Will Ronda Rousey be the main event of Wrestlemania 35?

Speculations suggested that this might take Nia Jax out of the equation from WWE TLC. This could have been a punishment towards her as a repercussion for what she did to Becky Lynch. But the reality turned out to be totally different. Management instead made her the sole survivor for Team Raw who earned the victory.

This made Nia Jax a clear-cut favorite to challenge Ronda Rousey at the WWE TLC event. But the original planning was going to be pretty different for this special night that deals with Tables, Ladders, and Chairs. A substitute name was there to become the challenger of Ronda Rousey. It was none other than the flag-bearer of the Hart Dungeon, Natalya.

Ronda Rousey reveals dream opponent for Wrestlemania

The Queen of Harts entered the WWE Raw division earlier this year as a training partner of Ronda Rousey. They developed a friendship hinting that Natalya is going to turn her back at some point creating a rift. As per Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the timing of this betrayal would have been prior to the WWE TLC event. But plans changed after Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart passed away back in the summer.

Here’s more on this courtesy of SportsKeeda.com,

“Meltzer also suggested that Nattie would have turned on Rousey around this time in the storyline and would then have been the one challenging her at TLC, rather than Nia Jax. The Irresistible Force has become a huge heel on Monday Night Raw over the past few weeks and it appears that WWE is taking advantage of this.”

The officials want Natalya to become a sympathetic character on WWE Raw, for now. So they scrapped the planning of potential heel-turn for the veteran superstar. They are rather rooting to use the natural heat on Nia Jax from the fans. This already made her the meanest heel on the roster who will throw a big challenge to Ronda Rousey.
