The Raw Women’s Championship match between Ronda Rousey and Nia Jax was one of the top matches at this year’s WWE TLC pay-per-view. In recent weeks, Jax has been talking about using her fist to break faces and she promised to do it to Rousey. WWE has been referring to Jas as the “facebreaker” after she injured Becky Lynch last month from a stiff punch.
Very good match. They practiced this match for a few days and it paid off. At one point, the action spilled to ringside and Rousey did a cross body block off the top rope and to the outside of the ring onto Jax. Rousey followed up by punch combinations, a knee to the face and a superman punch but that was not enough to pin Jax.
Rousey went for another cross body but Jax turned it into a Samoan Drop but Rousey got the shoulder up on the pin attempt. A little while later, Rousey was able to powerbomb Jax off the second rope. Jax kicked out of the pin attempt. Rousey tried for the armbar but Tamina caused the distraction and Jax went for the “facebreaker” but Rousey countered and then locked in the armbar. Jax tapped.
Jax got backstage and Becky Lynch appeared. Lynch kicked her and then punched her in the face, knocking her to the ground.
WWE has a big match planned for Rousey at the Royal Rumble. It’s a spoiler but click here if you want to know.
