Becky Lynch probably isn’t too happy with Nia Jax right about now. The Rock’s cousin nailed The Man with a punch to the face and caused injuries which prohibited Becky from competing this Sunday at Survivor Series against Ronda Rousey. But as we previously reported the silver lining of Lynch’s injury might shoot her straight to the top of the WrestleMania card.
Since Nia Jax is on Raw and Becky Lynch is on SmackDown Live, this limits the opportunities those two might have to battle. It definitely takes away a lot of chances for Lynch to seek revenge. But as it was noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there could be one high-profile location where the two might meet soon enough.
It was speculated that WWE could book the Women’s Royal Rumble match to include a stand-off between Lynch and Jax. They might even pay it off by making them the final to women in the Royal Rumble match in January.
With the two battling on social media, this likely means that WWE wants the heat to stick around. If anything, Nia Jax is certainly in a position on Raw as a heel where she could use the heat. But only time will tell when the rivalry between these two could get an eventual payoff.
