WWE News: How Becky Lynch Injury Changed View Of Nia Jax

Published

on

After injuring Becky Lynch on RAW, it looks like Nia Jax has earned a bad reputation!

Saying that the WWE Universe is disappointed that SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch will not be able to compete against RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey this Sunday at Survivor Series would probably be like saying the New York Yankees have a big budget right now.





Although Charlotte Flair is certainly a more than suitable replacement for ‘The Lass Kicker’, the brief build to a Lynch/Rousey clash was arguably the most anticipated match for Sunday’s event. Unfortunately, an errant shot this past Monday on RAW from Nia Jax to Becky caused what WWE called on SmackDown Live a “broken face and severe concussion”.

This is not the first time that ‘The Irresistible Force’ Nia Jax has hurt another performer and according to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, the usual sentiment of “accidents happen” or “it’s not ballet” was changed very quickly with regards to Nia. Sapp reports that at least behind-the-scenes over on the SmackDown Live side of things, the feeling is that Jax is careless in the ring.

It should be reiterated that this only pertains to the SmackDown Live side and there was no mention of whether that sentiment is the same over on Monday Night RAW or with WWE’s office. Of course, Nia is after all the number one contender for Rousey’s title after winning the Battle Royal at Evolution and the belief is she will get her title shot at TLC on December 16th.

EA’s Take: Just my personal opinion, but I think it’s fresh and people over on the blue brand are pissed because their hottest act is hurt. It doesn’t make much sense to me for Nia to have heat over an accident (because regardless of what you think, there’s a zero percent chance it was done on purpose) after we just saw a similar case recently with Brie Bella injuring Liv Morgan. Things happen, especially in a scenario like we had on Monday where it’s just complete chaos and it could have happened to anybody.

More On IMPACT Offer To Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho was recently a guest on Wrestling Observer Radio, and during the broadcast he discussed the offer that IMPACT wrestling made to him a few months ago: (credit to Fightful for the transcription below)

“In my mind, from a pure business standpoint, I’m worth as much as Brock Lesnar to WWE as far as what I bring to the table. That’s the watermark that I had. For me to go back to Vince, I want that kind of a deal. When I was starting to talk with Tony (Khan) and New Japan and Impact as well– Impact offered me a hell of a deal for a four match series. We’re talking mid-seven figures. They have some cash as well.”

AEW Double Or Nothing Ticket Sale Notes

Cody Rhodes took to Twitter a few days ago and provided some interesting stats on ticket sales for AEW Double Or Nothing:

Why The Women Didn’t Headline Elimination Chamber

Initially, it was thought that the historic Women’s Tag Team Championship match would headline the Elimination Chamber pay per view, however, according to Fightful, Vince McMahon made the change to swap the match out with the men’s Elimination Chamber match. McMahon felt the women’s match would get the reaction desired to close out the show.

Becky Lynch Re-Injures Knee At Live Event

WWE Elimination Chamber WWE Championship Match

Six men fought it out in the main event of WWE Elimination Chamber for The New Daniel Bryan’s WWE Championship. Did the Planet’s Champion retain?

The six men involved were:

  • Kofi Kingston (with Big E and Xavier Woods, starting in the near right pod)
  • Jeff Hardy (starting in the far right pod)
  • Randy Orton (starting in the near left pod)
  • AJ Styles (starting in the near left pod)
  • Samoa Joe (starting in the ring)
  • WWE Champion Daniel Bryan (with Eric Rowan, starting in the ring)

Kofi Kingston was THE fan’s favorite headed into this match. But he started in a pod, as the first two men in the match were Samoa Joe and WWE Champion Daniel Bryan (the Ring Of Honor fan in me is happy).

Order of events:

  • Daniel Bryan and Samoa Joe started the match at 0:00
  • Kofi Kingston entered the Chamber at 5:16
  • AJ Styles entered the Chamber at 10:27
  • AJ Styles eliminated Samoe Joe at 14:34
  • Jeff Hardy entered the Chamber at 15:14
  • Daniel Bryan eliminated Jeff Hardy at 17:58
  • Randy Orton entered the Chamber at 19:57
  • Randy Orton eliminated AJ Styles at 22:21
  • Kofi Kingston eliminated Randy Orton at 24:01
  • The final two men in the match were WWE Champion Daniel Bryan and Kofi Kingston
  • Daniel Bryan pinned Kofi Kingston at 36:35 to retain the WWE Championship

Daniel Bryan last eliminated Kofi Kingston to win the Elimination Chamber match and retain the WWE Championship
