• D-Von Dudley On What’s Great About Nia Jax & Charlotte Flair Having A Shoot Fight On RAW
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.
You can watch it below:
Even WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley was confused while watching this match. Here’s what he tweeted:
“Just wondering…WTF was up with that #CharlotteVsNia match?”

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.”
WWE Hall Of Famer D-Von Dudley, who works as a backstage Producer in WWE, had the following to say about this situation on his Table Talk podcast:
“I love both those ladies and wish them nothing but the best. If they have another built up match, you best believe people are going to be watching. That’s one of the great things about what happened on Monday.
When these two do get a rematch, people will be watching that and will want to see every little thing. I guarantee people will be nitpicking and watching every single move.
The two ladies had a misunderstanding, they solved it, and now we move on.”
