After reviewing clips of the action, it appears Nia Jax caught Becky Lynch with an elbow during the in-ring portion of the SmackDown Women’s Invasion at the end of Monday Night RAW from Sprint Center in Kansas City, according to a report from Ringside News.
Becky Lynch was in the corner with Nia Jax and then Jax laid an elbow into Lynch causing her to fall to the mat and when she jumped up her face was a crimson mask.
The report goes on to speculate that Lynch could have sustained a serious injury because she seemed to have been busted open all the way down the side of her nose. It was certainly an intense way to end a chaotic scene at the end of show and perhaps an iconic moment for Lynch in her meteoric rise as the hottest star in the WWE right now. For her part, Lynch played it off in a tweet as if it were expected.
Here’s the clip of the scene that WWE posted after the show:
