Nia Jax is a woman in the headlines right now. Unfortunately for her, it is for the wrong reasons. On this past episode of Monday Night Raw on November 12, 2018, Jax nailed Smackdown Women's Champion, Becky Lynch full force in the face with a right-hand punch.
The accidentally legitimate shot broke Lynch's nose and caused her to suffer a concussion. A bloodied Lynch was later declared to have been pulled from her heavily hyped Survivor Series clash with Raw Women's Champion, Ronda Rousey.
This caused Jax to suffer a deluge of hate online, particularly when she posted a picture of her bruised hand on Twitter and queried with tongue firmly in cheek why all the sympathy was being shown to Lynch.
That image and comment did not go down well with the WWE Universe.
For Jax, it is the latest high profile error which has caused injury to her opponents. The former Raw Women's Champion notably caused Alexa Bliss to suffer a shoulder injury during their bout at Backlash earlier this year. The same fate was suffered by Bayley prior to Summerslam 2017 when Jax accidentally dropped her causing her to suffer a shoulder injury as well.
However, the worst botches of Jax's career infamously caused Charlotte Flair a massive amount of pain back in April 2017, when on an episode of Raw, Jax attempted a Shoulder Breaker but recklessly dropped Flair's head on her right knee which severely dazed her opponent. Flair suffered a concussion and was not sufficiently protected when she performed a moonsault on Jax later in the same bout. Jax failed to properly catch her, causing Flair to smash her head full force on the floor.
Jax had appeared to put these high profile errors behind her in 2018 as she has enjoyed the biggest push of her career which incorporated a reign as champion between April and June.
For all the controversy, Jax is one of the biggest stars in the female division and has enjoyed many thrilling matches on main roster WWE. In the following slideshow, SK counts down the five best.
