Asuka vs. Nia Jax match on Raw halted due to injury


Asuka and Nia Jax finally crossed paths on the main roster and it lived up to the hype. Tonight (Jan. 15) on Raw, the irresistible force met the immovable object and may have given us a glimpse what will happen in the first women’s Royal Rumble match.

Going back and forth, both Asuka and Jax got their licks in.

With buckle bombs, triangle chokes, Earthquake splashes, power bombs all hitting, the story of the match turned into Asuka trying to chop down the size advantage Jax had over her.

Until Asuka literally chopped down Nia Jax on the steal steps and the The Hybrid Athlete took a nasty spill on the steels steps.

Jax beat the count back into the ring but could not put any weight on her leg. Asuka’s undefeated streak continues as she was declared the winner by referee stoppage.

If Jax can’t beat Asuka, who on the main roster can?
