Nia Jax Fires Shot At Becky Lynch

The former Nia Jax has taken aim at Becky Lynch, claiming that the former WWE Raw Women’s Champion doesn’t have a good friendship with anyone.

Lina Fanene, the former WWE Superstar Nia Jax, has continued targeting her former foe Becky Lynch, despite her WWE departure in November 2021. ‘The Irresistible Force’ believes Lynch doesn’t have a good friendship with anyone in the WWE locker room.

She claimed as such during an Instagram Stories Q&A session. Upon being asked, “Are you and Becky in good friendship or not?”, she retorted that she doesn’t think Becky is on good terms with anyone:

“Lol I don’t think she has a good friendship with anyone [laughing face emoji].”

Nia Jax and Becky Lynch have only collided a handful of times in WWE, none of which came as a straight singles match. Their first clash came at the 2016 Survivor Series pay-per-view, where Becky – representing Team SmackDown – submitted Team Raw’s Nia Jax out of the women’s Survivor Series elimination match.

Their storied history is best remembered for Nia Jax legitimately punching Becky Lynch on the 12 November 2018 edition of Monday Night Raw, breaking her nose in the process. This came at the height of Becky Lynch’s transformation from ‘The Lass Kicker’ into ‘The Man’.

Prior to her WWE departure on 4 November 2021, Nia Jax had been absent from WWE programming for two months, having been storyline injured by her former tag team partner Shayna Baszler. Together, they held the Women’s Tag Team Championships twice, with Jax also being a former Raw Women’s Champion.

Nia Jax hasn’t wrestled since leaving the company. Her return to the squared circle was only just confirmed this week; she’ll contend CJ Perry, the former Lana of WWE, at the inaugural Wrestling Entertainment Series event on 4 June from Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena to crown a WES Women’s Champion.
