WWE superstar Nia Jax on Raw
WWE superstar Nia Jax was the talk of Twitter after an awkward injury on Monday Night Raw.
The wrestler – one half of the Women’s Tag Team Champions with Shayna Baszler – lost to long-time rival Lana in a Tables Match on last night’s show, but one moment in particular caught the attention of the internet.
After missing a leg drop and landing on her bottom, Nia was clearly heard shouting: ‘My hole!’
Not surprisingly, Twitter took this and ran with it, with #MyHole trending during the broadcast and beyond.
Even WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley caught wind of the hilarious incident, and gave a nod to ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin as he pointed out the marketing and merchandise potential.
He tweeted: ‘”MY HOLE” could be the “Austin 3:16” for a new generation! I expect a new @NiaJaxWWE #MyHole t-shirt by Thursday! #RAW (sic)’
Knowing how quickly WWE can react with designs – Bad Bunny and last year’s ‘I wasn’t there’ WrestleMania 36 t-shirts are great examples of that – it wouldn’t be a big shock.
It’s also nice to see Nia getting some attention for a genuinely entertaining moment after coming under heavy criticism over the past couple of years with fans claiming she has injured her co-workers.
Lucha House Party’s Lince Dorado replied to a clip of a bad fall he took during WWE NXT’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic and insisted: ‘I’m good’.
Jax was quick to sarcastically respond: ‘I moved the table so it could injure you’.
She also retweeted a fan who wrote: ‘Every injury in WWE is Nia’s Fault…..#sarcasm #shesnotlikemostgirls’.
Back in December, the 36-year-old star also addressed an awkward moment during a Raw match where she ended up charging and tumbling out of the ring.
She joked she was aiming for Little Jimmy – R-Truth’s imaginary friend – and couldn’t resist another quip when a fan urged her not to ‘hurt’ him.
She tweeted: ‘Too late. I’m sure the dirt sheets will report that I “legitimately” injured Jimmy and he will be out for 6-8 weeks’.
