In a surprising turn of events, WWE’s Nia Jax has once again thrust herself into the limelight, this time on the anniversary of the infamous incident that marked a turning point in the career of Becky Lynch. The controversial figure, known for her polarizing presence, took to social media to commemorate the punch that left Lynch bloodied and battered five years ago. However, rather than expressing remorse, Jax chose to stoke the flames of controversy, hinting at a potentially ominous reunion.
The unforgettable incident unfolded in the lead-up to Survivor Series 2018 when Lynch, at the helm of the SmackDown women’s roster, led an invasion of RAW. Amidst the ensuing chaos, Jax delivered a powerful punch to Lynch, resulting in a broken nose and a concussion. The visceral image of a defiant and bloodied Lynch became iconic, propelling her into superstardom and solidifying her status as “The Man.”
As various wrestling pages shared the evocative image, Nia Jax seized the opportunity to share her candid feelings about the incident, taking a defiant stance and even issuing a threatening message to Lynch. “
Oh believe me, the pleasure was all mine! And I can’t wait to do it again!” Jax wrote, setting the stage for what could be a highly charged and potentially explosive confrontation.

The tensions between Jax and Lynch escalated further during a recent episode of RAW when the two engaged in a heated backstage confrontation. Jax, recalling the infamous punch, asserted her dominance, while Lynch, undeterred, reminded Jax of her significant accomplishments, particularly main-eventing WrestleMania – a feat that stands in stark contrast to Jax’s departure from WWE.
Meanwhile, Nia Jax’s pursuit of the Women’s World Championship hit an unexpected snag as Zoey Stark emerged victorious in the Women’s Battle Royal. Despite Jax’s dominant performance in the match, Stark, along with Raquel Rodriguez and Shayna Baszler, collaborated to eliminate her from contention. The unforeseen outcome not only reshaped the championship landscape but also hinted at potential conflicts within the women’s division.
While tensions between Jax and Lynch continue to rise, the brewing feud may have to wait as Xia Li, targeting Lynch, intervened during the Women’s Battle Royal. With the stage set for multiple narratives to converge, WWE fans are left speculating about the potential fireworks between these two formidable competitors in the coming months.
As the wrestling world braces for a potential clash of titans, the anniversary message from Nia Jax to Becky Lynch adds a layer of complexity to an already intricate and evolving storyline, promising high stakes and intense emotions in the days to come.
