This is the brutal moment one of the biggest names in women’s WWE suffered a broken nose in a moment that wasn’t in the script.
Becky Lynch was supposed to fight Ronda Rousey in a champion v champion bout at this weekend’s Survivor Series pay-per-view.
But Nia Jax has thrown that into disarray after accidentally breaking Lynch’s face and giving her a severe concussion in a stunt gone wrong.
During a scripted brawl between members of Smackdown and members of RAW, Jax went a little too hard and socked Lynch right in the face, much harder than was supposed to happen.
Lynch had carried on with the brawl as blood poured from her face, and she played up the damage to end the program.
Becky Lynch wasn't supposed to get busted open and bloody on #RAW. Nia Jax accidentally really hit her hard in the face.
Honestly though, it's a botch that turned out well…
Becky's bloody face will now be forever remembered as the night she solidified herself as a legend. pic.twitter.com/DzoN3ojEjq

However, the 31-year-old Irishwoman is now unfit to fight to fight Rousey, and WWE fans are fuming at Jax.
At what point does WWE give up on Nia Jax? The charisma and in ring work isn’t there. Now she injures the most over person in the company days before a major PPV? Unacceptable #SurvivorSeries

Nia Jax almost paralyzed Charlotte and has injured Alexa Bliss, Asuka, Bayley, and now Becky. Either send her back down to NXT or fire her because she’s not good enough for the main roster.

I’ve said it before, Nia Jax is the worst performer on the women’s roster. Very sloppy in the ring and horribly boring too. Her promos are garbage as well. At this point, she’s the female Big Show except Show never botched as much as Jax does. She’s a danger to the other talent.

Why isn’t nobody getting at Nia Jax for this? If it was Brie Bella, forget about it. https://t.co/V8Ayry05d9

Becky’s nose broken
⚠️KEEP NIA JAX AWAY FROM THE RING⚠️

Hearing Nia Jax has “major heat” within WWE for giving Becky Lynch a broken nose and concussion. Word is many women talent feel she’s unsafe in the ring.

Jax’s colleagues are also said to be unhappy, with a number of ‘botched’ moves injuring fellow stars recently.
Remarkably, Lynch appeared in character on SmackDown – just 24 hours after suffering the injuries.
Sporting a black eye, she announced Charlotte Flair had been picked to fight Rousey in her place.

“Even with a severe concussion and a broken face I could still kick Ronnie’s ass,” Lynch said in character.
“I’m sorry to everybody that I can’t finish what I started… yet. Because Ronda, you’re not the baddest bitch on the planet, you’re the luckiest.”
