Nia Jax On Punching Becky Lynch
Nia Jax earned herself the “Facebreaker” moniker after causing Becky Lynch a broken face on the Survivor Series go-home edition of Monday Night RAW.
During a recent interview with Bleacher Report, Jax noted how her punch had helped push Becky to the top and also addressed the huge backlash that she had received after that unscripted mishap.
“At the moment, I know it sucks. But look what it’s done for Becky. Look what it’s done for me. Look what it’s done for you as a heel. I didn’t really think of it that way when I was getting told to go die and never come out of my hole again.”
“Some of the tweets really were going off the rails. But when she put it in that perspective, I started to think about it differently. Now, it’s something that people will remember forever. It was crazy, but it turned into something pretty cool.”
Jeff Jarrett’s Reported New Role On TV
There’s a lot of speculation regarding the way Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett will be used on television now that he is back in WWE.
On PWInsider Elite audio, Mike Johnson revealed how WWE could use Double J on weekly TV, given Jeff is set to work directly with Superstars.
“The crowd loved the Double J stuff, loved the Road Dogg stuff and I guess Jarrett when he shows up will be used as an undercard feel-good character. They used Elias to lay Jeff Jarrett and Road Dogg out, I get it. It’s no different than DX laying out Sgt. Slaughter or somebody else to kinda get some heat on people that the fans care about. We’ll see what goes on here.”
Time To Take Action, WWE!
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that WWE needs to dig into its creative right now or else risk losing much more than just TV ratings.
“I mean one of the things again and a lot of stuff is different and we saw some of it tonight.”
“They know that they need to get going. They need to get ratings up. They need to get interest in this product up because they’re in there with the big boys and you know that will be… everything that they’re doing and if they go on Fox — this is months away and they got to get that audience up. If they go on Fox and they don’t have a good number on Fox the stock goes down, the value goes down. They will be viewed as someone who can’t hang in real prime-time on a real network station.”
“None of these things they want.”
