WWE has confirmed that Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey will defend her title against Riott Squad leader Ruby Riott at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view on February 17.
Last Monday on Raw, Ronda Rousey defeated both of Riott’s pals Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan consecutively in short order, before Riott teased stepping up before backing away.

The pair have faced off one-on-one once before back in October on Raw, though that match was not for the title. Rousey of course won and has continued her streak of being undefeated in singles action to this day.
With Rousey vs. Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair the match slated to be happening and potentially main eventing WrestleMania, it seems the Riott bout presents a predictable retention for the ‘Baddest Woman on the Planet’.
It should be an excellent match though, as both have proved they are capable of putting on great bouts, and if given time and Ruby is allowed to get some offense in, it could make for great viewing.
The other two Riott Squad members will be a part of the Women’s Tag Title Elimination Chamber match at the event.
