Becky Lynch is without a doubt the hottest topic in the professional wrestling community at the moment, as she’s been pulled from her match with Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series on Sunday. Lynch was hit with a stiff shot courtesy of Nia Jax during a multi-woman brawl on Raw, and she suffered a broken nose and a severe concussion.
Nia Jax has been taking a lot of criticism on social media because of the punch, and Chris Jericho recently discussed the infamous spot during an episode of Talk Is Jericho.
Jericho noted that the strike looked like a legitimate punch, but he’s holding off on judgement when it comes to the incident.
“Stuff happens. If you see the punch that she took, oh my gosh! It didn’t look like a potato, it looked like a legitimate delivered punch to the face. But whatever, we’ll hold off for judgment on that,” Jericho said via Wrestling Inc.
For anyone who hasn’t seen it yet, the strike that injured Becky Lynch can be seen in the video below.
Jesus……that's brutal from this angle. Such a unnecessary stiff shot. I really hope Becky Lynch is ok. In other news, fuck Nia pic.twitter.com/wTwUlE5xGk
