• Backstage News On Nia Jax & Charlotte Flair Slapping Each Other For Real During RAW Match
On this week’s episode of RAW, Nia Jax defeated RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair clean in a non-title match.
This match was very weird, as it featured a lot of botches.
At one point, it looked like they had a shoot (real) fight during their match, where Nia and Charlotte slapped each other for real.

Even WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley was confused while watching this match. Here’s what he tweeted:

According to PWInsider, this situation was blamed on ‘breakdown in communication’ between the two women, but both of them were back on the same page in the end:
“It was exactly what it appeared to be – a match that went awry and led to some legitimate moments where real slaps and punches were lobbed after there was some sort of breakdown in communication.
Briefly, there was a legitimate confrontation inside the ring. By the end of the match, Jax and Flair were back on the same page and the finish went as originally booked.”
