On Monday Night RAW, Ronda Rousey escalated her feud with SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch ahead of their upcoming Champion vs. Champion match at WWE Survivor Series and declared herself a “natural born killer.”

Over on the blue brand, Lynch took issue with a lot of Rousey’s points. She started out by saying, “You told me that you were the last woman on earth that I should provoke. Well, who are you to tell the champ anything?” And she only got more fired up from there.

Lynch said that although Rousey holds a championship, she is not truly a WWE champion yet because “a champion wills herself through adversity, through defeat… but you haven’t been tested yet.” She said that winning comes so easily to the former UFC fighter that she will be psychologically destroyed by her loss to Lynch, who has already been “ground down” and “tested” yet still remains “the most relentless person you have ever met.”

The “Irish Lass Kicker” continued, mocking Rousey for saying she respects her. She closed her speech with the mic drop line: “I don’t care if you’re the baddest bitch on the planet, because I’m going to make you mine.”

Lynch was so hyped up after her promo that instead of heading back to the locker room, she issued an impromptu open challenge and proceeded to defeat a debuting Nikki Cross by submission.

How many days are left until Survivor Series again? Is there any way we can make there be less?
