• Kairi Sane Getting Injured On RAW Was Nia Jax’s Fault, Says An Anonymous WWE Veteran
Nia Jax faced off against Kairi Sane on this week’s RAW. During the match, she threw Sane into the steel steps, which led to Sane suffering a deep cut on her head.
While it’s being reported that she doesn’t have any heat on her backstage, some wrestlers still consider that she botched the spot.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer was told the following by a anonymous WWE veteran:
“She didn’t whip her, she grabbed her by the head and threw/shoved her. It was 100% Nia’s fault. She never let Kairi find her balance after pulling her out of the ring, she then pushed her head down so Kairi would be unable to see and then threw her forward hard head first off balance towards the steps. Kairi has zero chance.”
Another person told Meltzer that by watching the spot on television “it did look to be 100% her fault”.
