After her altercation with Charlotte Flair on Monday Night Raw, Nia Jax reportedly received unwavering support from the female talent in the WWE locker room.
Nia Jax met Charlotte Flair on the August 30th episode of Monday Night Raw. On the surface, the matchup appeared to be a routine clash, but it was anything but.
Nia Jax picked up Flair for a belly-to-back suplex and dropped The Queen high on her back, shoulders, and neck onto the canvas at one point during the match. Many fans questioned whether there was a hint of reality when the two women began trading slaps before continuing the match. Flair also attempted to hurt Jax’s knee with a vicious-looking chop block to help set up for Flair’s patented Figure 8 Leg Lock.
The match ended with Jax delivering a vicious powerbomb to Flair to take the victory.
According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, the match was exactly what it appeared to be. Things went wrong, and there were legitimate instances of “real slaps and punches” being thrown. Following a brief breakdown in communication, the two Superstars engaged in a “legitimate confrontation.”
It has now been suggested that Jax received support from the locker room following the incident. According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Jax was praised for standing up to Flair and refusing to be bullied:
”The reaction to that match among at least women talent in the locker room was to be solidly behind Jax for standing up to Flair and showing her she can’t bully her around, even though Jax was the one who seemingly did the first unprofessional thing that took the match off the rails.”
The news comes after Flair was involved in yet another controversy, this time with Becky Lynch on a recent episode of SmackDown.
The two Superstars were set to exchange their Women’s Championships on the show after Raw Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair was drafted to SmackDown and Lynch, the blue brand’s champion was drafted to Raw.
During the segment, however, Flair awkwardly dropped her title rather than handing it to Lynch, before The Man threw her SmackDown title at The Queen. This allegedly sparked a heated argument between the two backstage, and Flair was escorted out of the building by security.
