That is according to the publisher and editor of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Dave Meltzer who thinks Jax is the wrong opponent for Rousey.
According to Give Me Sport, Meltzer also claims that a probable triumph from the UFC legend would create fan resentment as many believe she still has a lot of dues to pay despite her MMA success.
He said: “You put Ronda Rousey in there with Nia Jax this early, they could have a terrible match.
“Nia Jax is coming off a match against Alexa Bliss that was no good and they’re best friends, and usually best friends work well together.
“And I know Ronda Rousey is coming off a match that makes her look better than Alexa Bliss has ever looked in her whole life, but there’s a huge experience difference between the two of them.
“Nia Jax is the wrong opponent, going to the title this early is ridiculous because there’s no chase. So, what do you do about a finish?
“If you put Ronda Rousey over, it’s big news and everything like that.
“But you didn’t even have the chase, you risk the resentment of some fans – the ‘you deserve it’ fans because they’ll be like, ‘you gave her the championship ahead of so many other women.’ Even though she’s more famous than all of them.”
Rousey faces Jax on June 17 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.
