Earlier this week, Nia Jax hit Becky Lynch in the face with a punch during a brawl segment on Monday Night RAW. Lynch’s nose broke and she began to bleed terribly. It was later determined that Lynch was medically unfit to compete in her scheduled match against RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series Sunday.
Former WWE Champ Chris Jericho offered his thoughts on the matter during his podcast, “Talk Is Jericho,” and had this to say:
“If you see the punch she took, oh my gosh, it didn’t look like a potato. It looked like a legitimate deliberate punch to the face. But, whatever, we’ll hold off on judgment for that.”
For what it’s worth, Jax reportedly has some backstage heat over the incident. She took to Twitter to poke fun at breaking Lynch’s nose as well. It’s being rumored that Lynch vs. Rousey is being considered for the main event of WrestleMania 35.
