Dean Ambrose reacts to Nia Jax hitting him on WWE Monday Night Raw

WWE had Nia Jax continue to interact with male superstars in a physical way. It all started at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view event once Jax stole R-Truth’s #30 spot in the Men’s Royal Rumble Match and taking some finishers from three WWE stars. Dolph Ziggler hit a superkick to the former WWE RAW Women’s Champion then Rey Mysterio followed up with a drop kick and the 619.  Finally, Randy Orton connected with an RKO.

As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw in Phoenix, AZ at the Talking Stick Resort Arena on the USA Network,  Ambrose was about to cut a promo after a loss to Seth Rollins but was interrupted by Tamina and Jax. This led to Ambrose and Jax having a standoff that saw Jax hitting him with a forearm that sent him tumbling through the ropes as he was about to leave.

Following the segment, WWE’s YouTube channel released this video of Ambrose reacting to the incident. This is where the former WWE Champion, who is reportedly planning to depart from the company, stated that he thinks Jax’s attack was an accident of sorts.

“I have spent a lot of time and drank a lot of cocktails with Tamina over the years,” Ambrose said. “Great woman. I’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt here, I don’t know why she’s fraternizing with this Nia Jax.

“I’m going to assume that Nia simply tripped and fell in to me, and was not trying to start some physical altercation with me, a man. Because that’s insane, right? So, I’m going to accept her, what I assume is an apology is what she was yelling at me from the ring as I was being escorted away by referees. Like I would do something. Can you imagine? I’m going to accept her apology. And we’re all good.”
