Let's be honest here.

While The WWE Universe is understandably upset about Nia Jax injuring Becky Lynch during an invasion angle on Raw a couple of weeks ago, that doesn't mean WWE feels the same way. In fact, with what WWE did with Nia Jax at Survivor Series and the next night on Raw, it seems like the company is all in on her as a heel again.

Of course, a lot of other WWE Superstars aren't even happy about Jax not getting punished after injuring Nia Jax, but it feels like they are ignoring the bigger picture here. Furthermore, they seem to be forgetting that a lot of what WWE is doing with this storyline is some of the things that have made programming interesting over the past year or so.

With that being said and Nia Jax still seemingly on a collision course with Ronda Rousey at The TLC pay per view, here are five reasons why not punishing Nia Jax was the best decision for WWE. Do you agree with this? What do you think would be best for business? Let us know in the comments below!


#5 Fans reaction

Whether The WWE Universe likes it or not, Nia Jax is best for business!

It's no secret that The WWE Universe absolutely despises Nia Jax right now after she injured Becky Lynch during an invasion angle on Raw, but does that really mean she should be punished? In fact, with the polarizing crowd reaction she is receiving and the new wrinkle in her character, doesn't it make more sense to capitalize on it?

Think about it! WWE probably wasn't going to book Jax to take the title off of Rousey anyway, which means this will most likely not result in her winning the championship. In the end, it would be understandable to be upset if WWE were to crown Jax champion after the incident with Becky Lynch, but another match with Rousey doesn't risk much

#4 Lack of other options

It's no secret that a lot of the women on The Raw roster aren't exactly ready for a feud with Ronda Rousey for The Women's title, which essentially leaves them with very few options. Sure, WWE could try to work to build another star up to face Rousey, but it's only going to end with them taking a beating and tapping out to the armbar.

With that being said and a lot of the women on Raw struggling to make it past the mid card right now, it's pretty obvious that Nia Jax is the only really suitable choice. In fact, with Tamina Snuka now acting as a bodyguard for Jax, it gives WWE a bit of new storytelling to use during the match will only benefit everyone involved.

Again, Ember Moon, Ruby Riot, Sarah Logan, Live Morgan or Mickie James could have ended up being Rousey's next victim if Jax was punished for what happened, but what good would that do? Beyond that, does WWE really want to hand a big loss to an up and coming star like Moon or someone else this early in their career.

#3 Gives fans a conclusion

Believe it or not, The WWE Universe never got a satisfying conclusion to the blockbuster match between Nia Jax and Ronda Rousey,. In fact, the last time the two went one on one, Jax was seconds away from taping out to Rousey's armbar before Alexa Bliss interfered and cashed in her money in the bank contract to win the title for herself.

With that being said and WWE never giving fans a conclusion to the big title match, it at least makes sens that the company would go back to one more time. Furthermore, with Jax's new character development and Rousey looking more and more vulnerable, the match will be even more polarizing than before.

Not only that, the company continuing n with the storyline between Jax and Rousey gives them a serviceable stop gap until another competitor is built up down the line. In the end, Jax getting another title match may not be what many wanted, but its something that people are invested in and WWE is genius to capitalize on that!

#2 Gives Nia Jax a new wrinkle to her character

Nia Jax has been in desperate need of a character change for a long time now and while she did ok as a babyface under the anti-bullying gimmick, she seems to flourish a lot better as a heel. With that being said and her accidentally injuring Becky Lynch, why not play off of that and mould the character that everyone always knew Jax could be.

Not only does the injury of Becky Lynch give Jax the legitimacy she needs to look like a brutalized, it also allows her to start using the knockout punch as her finisher, which could be a cool way to freshen things up a bit. Beyond that, it would likely create the most interesting challenge that Rousey has had yet and that's a big deal in WWE.

If nothing else, its the refresh that Jax needed and although it only happened due to an accidental injury, it could lift Jax's profile for years to come. Whether that's right or not is up to you and how you feel about what Jax did to Lynch, but one has to admit that it at least makes for interesting television

#1 Perfect mix of realism and story

WWE has an absolute knack for intermixing realism and fiction, which is one of the reasons fans love to watch every week. Not only does it blur the lines between the two very different things in a way that blurs the line it also makes it much easier for the fans to believe in as well. If nothing else, Nia Jax still getting pushed is a perfect example of that.

Think about it! WWE using the real-life injury of Becky Lynch to further Nia Jax storyline is the perfect blend of reality and fiction. Beyond that, it gets people talking about whether WWE is doing the right thing or not, which only makes it that much more polarizing to see it unfold over the next couple of weeks.

In the end, the polarizing nature of all this mixed with WWE's excellent ability to mix storyline and reality together in a perfect blend is going to make this feud something great. Its also going to make fans flock to The upcoming TLC pay per view to see if Nia Jax lethal hands can take out the former Bantamweight champion.
