Three-time WWE Champion Mick Foley couldn’t help but wonder what he’d seen following one match that seemed to take a peculiar turn on RAW.
Nia Jax’s first task on RAW on Monday night was to accompany her tag team partner Shayna Baszler to the ring for the Queen Of Spades’ bout with former RAW Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley. Jax attacked Nikki A.S.H who was supporting Ripley at ringside and she dropped Ripley with a Samoan Drop after she had picked up the win over Baszler. But for Jax, her night was just getting started.
Nia Jax faced RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair later in the evening in a non-title match. Perhaps surprisingly Jax was able to pick up the win over Flair after dropping her with a powerbomb but the match gained traction on social media for other reasons.
At one point during the match Nia Jax picked Flair up for a belly-to-back suplex and dropped The Queen high on her back, shoulders, and neck onto the canvas. Many fans have wondered if there was a hint of reality when the two women began trading slaps before continuing with the match. Flair also delivered a nasty-looking chop block to Jax’s knee in an attempt to set her up for the Figure 8 submission.
With many fans wondering just what happened in the stilted match, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley was asking the same question on Twitter:
“Just wondering…WTF was up with that #CharlotteVsNia match?”

Charlotte Flair won the RAW Women’s Title at SummerSlam in a Triple Threat match involving Nikki A.S.H and Rhea Ripley. With those two women now seemingly forming an alliance it seems like Nia Jax could be Flair’s next challenger for the gold after defeating her. WWE presents its next pay-per-view Extreme Rules on September 26th.
