Can Ronda Rousey lock in the armbar on Nia Jax at Money in the Bank?
The answer may well determine whether or not “The Baddest Woman on the Planet” can become Raw Women’s Champion — and “The Irresistible Force” is feeling good about her chances of escaping Rousey’s dreaded signature maneuver.
During her bout against a local competitor named Michelle Webb, the Raw Women’s Champion allowed herself to be placed into the hold, at which point she demonstrated her planned counter by hoisting Webb into the air and powerbombing her into the mat. She then dropped Webb with a Samoan Drop before demonstrating her further prowess by administering a leg drop and a rolling senton. Having apparently made her point, Nia invited Rousey into the ring to help Webb to her feet.
Nia appeared unfazed when Rousey got in her face, laughing off “The Baddest Woman on the Planet” before turning her back on the challenger and heading back to the locker room.
As for the identity of Michelle Webb, she is an independent wrestler by the name of Madi Maxx. Maxx has been wrestling since 2015 and is a former OVW Women’s Champion — she was trained at the Ohio Valley Wrestling school.
During her short career, Maxx has wrestled a few current and former Impact Wrestling stars including Rosemary, Kiera Hogan, Rebel, HAVOK and Mickie Knuckles. She calls herself “The Paris Hilton of Pro Wrestling.”
Here are a few photos of Maxx from her Instagram account.
