Charlotte Flair and Nia Jax have battled in the ring before, but this week saw a much different kind of match on RAW. The two had what some considered a sloppy bout, and Mick Foley was also very confused by what happened as well.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer spoke about what went down on RAW between Nia Jax and Charlotte Flair. He explained that the two turned things into a worked shoot, meaning that it was still controlled, but it was also a bit real on top of it all.
“They weren’t fighting, the way I heard — I don’t know, it was a mess, it was terrible — I’ve heard people say that they were trying to work a shoot and that’s why it looked so terrible, but whatever, I mean whatever, it was a really bad match.”
“Nia looked really bad in that match, and I guess this is the new program for Extreme Rules.”
No matter what the intention was, fans were still a bit confused. It’s no wonder why WWE doesn’t do this kind of thing very often. We have to wonder whose idea it was to give them the green light to try it this week.
