Ronda Rousey will have an opportunity for revenge against Raw Women's champion Alexa Bliss, as long as she behaves herself.  

Raw general manager Kurt Angle announced Monday he's suspending the former UFC star an additional week after she was involved in Bliss' match with Nia Jax at Extreme Rules on Sunday.

However, Rousey will get a crack at Bliss at SummerSlam on August 19 after she serves her full suspension:

However... If @RondaRousey obeys her suspension, she will face @AlexaBliss_WWE for the #RAW #WomensTitle at #SummerSlam! https://t.co/ytxwGepzqO

Rousey has been looking for retribution since Bliss cost her a shot at the Raw Women's Championship at Money in the Bank on June 17.

Rousey was close to locking an armbar on Jax before Bliss interfered and attacked Rousey with the Money in the Bank briefcase. Bliss then cashed in the briefcase to take the title.

Many expected some version of Bliss vs. Rousey to be the plan for SummerSlam. That matchup took a big step toward coming to fruition Monday night.
