Nia Jax And Ronda Rousey Responded To Becky Lynch’s Injury


WWE

WWE‘s Becky Lynch has dominated the wrestling conversation since she turned on Charlotte Flair at SummerSlam, and even more so since the build began for her highly anticipated Survivor Series champion vs. champion showdown with Ronda Rousey. The Lynch-led SmackDown invasion of Raw went from the angle’s best moment to it’s real-life worst when the self-proclaimed Man it was revealed she was injured and would not be medically cleared to wrestle on Sunday. On last night’s SmackDown, Lynch picked her longtime friend/rival Flair to replace her against Rousey, but WWE’s incorporation of the shoot injury into kayfabe didn’t stop there.

SmackDown opened with a recap of the blue invasion of the red brand and highlighted what previously could only be seen via faraway fan cam video: Lynch was injured after being punched in the face by Nia Jax. Jax, who earned a Raw Women’s Championship match with Rousey sometime in the future by winning the battle royal at Evolution, responded to widespread fan backlash about the incident today on Twitter.

Lynch’s response was enough to make you wish for a trade to Raw (or at the very least, hope for a faceoff during this year’s Royal Rumble.)

Ronda Rousey’s initial response to Lynch’s injury was the brief statement, “This match being off sucks, I was looking forward to kicking her ass. I’ll have to do it later” via her website. However, when she found out how it happened, she had a lot more to say. In a lengthy caption to an Instagram post of a tweet from UFC fighter Nate Diaz, she said,

@beckylynchwwe I’m really sorry to hear The Millennial Man will not be showing up for her legally arranged ass whooping on November 18th at the Staples Center.

Unfortunately now everyone knows if someone hauls off and punches you for real, your face implodes. I suggest you keep practicing your tough guys faces in the mirror, should be very effective physical therapy.

And have fun watching Korean soap operas on Netflix or whatever the hell the Millennial Man does with her free time. Don’t worry I’m not the back stabbing cheap shotting ambushing cowardly type, so you’re perfectly safe to take your time and heal up until your figurative balls have dropped and you’re finally ready for your comeuppance. I want you 100% healed up, prepared, and looking me in the eye when the bell rings. Lemmie know when you’re done healing your boo boos and ready for me to serve you your ass on a silver platter with your avocado toast.

I do have to admit, The Millennial Man is stunningly conniving. She poked the bear and ran like a bat outta hell when the bear awoke – Feeding me her favorite frienemy and fellow #FAUXhorsewoman @charlottewwe is a new level of manipulative cowardice, even for The Millennial Man. @charlottewwe is a Superfight and I’ve always wanted to fight her – but she’s just the stand in for the beating @beckylynchwwe has coming to her this Sunday. I’ll be sending The Champ a choice piece of Charlotte as a souvenir?? #RondaVsCharlotte #SurvivorSeries #Nov18 #4horsewomenVSfauxhorsewomen

So… WrestleMania main event? The start of the MMA vs. NXT Four Horsewomen feud? There a several different directions WWE can go with this. The one thing we know for sure is that Jax will have crazy heat going into her title match with Rousey.
