When the news broke several days ago about Kairi Sane being busted open during Raw, the word was that someone who saw what happened said that it did not look to be Nia Jax’s fault. The spot was shown during last night’s broadcast and it is looking more like Sane was too close to the steps when she was shoved into the steel steps and it appears that Jax shoved her too hard, causing Sane to lose her balance and fall head-first into the steps.
Bryan Alvarez and Dave Meltzer discussed the spot during Wrestling Observer Radio and they both noted that people in WWE were not happy with Jax. Alvarez read a text message that he was sent from someone in WWE and it’s clear that the heat is on Jax for what happened.
The text message from a WWE source read: “1000 percent Nia’s fault. She needs to be f**king fired. She is dangerous. Fire her before she cripples or kills somebody.”
As previously noted, the referee immediately went to Sane to check on her before wiping the blood away from her head. WWE edited the match to remove the delay in the action and to avoid showing the blood. This is not the first time that Jax has hurt Sane. A couple of weeks ago, Jax attempted a buckle bomb on Sane in the corner of the ring but she missed the mark and Sane landed awkwardly on the bottom turnbuckle. That buckle bomb was banned by Vince McMahon after that match.
