WWE News: Nia Jax reveals why match against Dean Ambrose was scrapped
What's the story?
Nia Jax, over the last year or so, has gained in stature significantly in the WWE - first winning the RAW Women's title, feuding with Ronda Rousey, and then having a brief feud with Becky Lynch, which in many ways helped Lynch get over with the fans.
She was also an entrant in the Men's Royal Rumble match earlier this year after being a part of the Women's Royal Rumble match.
Jax has now revealed why a match between her and Dean Ambrose, which was initially advertised, was scrapped.
In case you didn't know...
Jax entered last in the Men's Royal Rumble after attacking R-Truth and taking his place. She eliminated Mustafa Ali before she was eliminated.
On the RAW after Royal Rumble, Jax interrupted Dean Ambrose's segment and then threw the Lunatic Fringe out of the ring, which hinted at a possible feud and an intergender match.
The heart of the matter
In an interview with Inside The Ropes ahead of WrestleMania 35, Jax spoke about the match that was initially advertised for between Jax and Dean Ambrose for a live event, which was later scrapped.
“Unfortunately my schedule was messed… they didn’t have the schedule right. And I have Total Divas work that I had to go to. So, it was more of like, the scheduling was off and we couldn’t make it work.
She then joked that The Lunatic Fringe was the one to get the match scrapped: "He’s the one who asked for it to be scrapped, just kidding.” (H/T StillRealToUs)
